024.04 This name is not known by any person, but it is supposed to be the place mentioned in the Royal Charter, and called Jack's Field on Copy Draught of Common, and the authorities quoted are of this opinion
It is very probable that in ancient times when the Roman Catholic religion was the religion of the land, that a cross or rood stood here, as it is a very likely place for such an emblem, being situated on the summit of a hill over which the main road from Bervie to Laurencekirk passes, and not far from the Monastery of Inverbervie from which the hill can be seen. There are the remains of a large Cairn here where it is probable that the cross might be erected. The above is only supposition as I can not obtain any information on the subject, but the age of the name, its derivation, and the Situation and appearance of the ground, are all in favor of the above supposition.
