"At Henderland in Megget is the ruins of a Kirk out
of which was lately dug a tombstone the characters
on which are legible, viz. a blank Shield supported
by the loose and staff of a cross erect and a Sword
on the sinister side thereof with this inscription "Here lyes perys of Cokburne
and his wyfe marjory". Nisbet says that Piers de Cockburn of Henderland was the
root of the branches of that name now extinct. The country people have a tradi
-tional anecdote that the last of that name in possession was an outlaw and hanged
over his own gate". Armstrongs Companion to his maps P. [Page] 65.
