034 "In Episcopal times the Vicar of Farnell held the office of Dean of the church of Brechin, and in the old taxatio the Kirk is rated at 20 marks. As now constituted Farnell is made up of two ecclesiastical districts, for anciently there was a chapel at Cuikstone or Quyqstone" (Cuikstone is in Brechin) "The names of two of the Rectors of it have been preserved, and the site is about a mile north of the present Parish Church, near a mound called "Rume's Cross", a name which although now of doubtful origin, perhaps refers to the patron Saint of the Kirk."
Memorials of Angus & Mearns
The Site of the supposed cross &c. is marked by a mound, apparently of artificial construction, in "Anderson Den" just within the Park wall of Kinnaird. The name had been long known in the Parish, but its probable origin was not much known till the "Memorials of Angus" were published. No opinions are given by any of the authorities quoted beyond what is said of "Rume's Cross" in the Memos. [Memorials] of Angus.
