053 Close to the east side of the dwelling-house of St. Fink there was formerly a Chapel surrounded by a burying ground. The present proprietor removed part of the foundation and trenched the ground for a number of yards around it, and while so doing dug up human bones and urns, he also found two small coins and three bottles of a globular shape.
"There was anciently a chapel at Saint Fink dedicated to that Saint a small part of the foundation of which still remains. It had been surrounded by a burying ground out of which the present proprietor's father dug some human skulls, inclosed between four square stones. Below a cairn he found human bones partially burned, and below these again two rudely sculptured urns inverted with human bones in a state of perfect preservation. Very lately, near the chapel there were discovered some singular looking bottles, nearly globular, likewise inverted."

[Additional quotation under Chapel:]
"There has anciently been a burying ground round the
Chapel. The present proprietor dug out some heads without a body
(each enclosed between 4 square stones, fitted to hold the head); probably
the heads of people who had been slain at a distance in battle.
There was a cairn of stones on his Estate, which he also opened up
& below the stones, among the loose earth, which was black with burnt ashes
he found some human bones, which had undergone fire & upon digging down
into the firm ground below, he found two inverted urns, which had been
placed in pits dug for them, each urn containing human bones; The
urns were large enough to hold the thigh & leg bones & other bones, and
other bones, entire. They were adorned with rude sculpture, but had no inscription."
