Carswell Ancestry Paisley Scotland

This evening, I am posting a video clip of a recumbent memorial stone located at Paisley's Laigh (or low) Kirk. The script on the stone was covered in moss had first to be cleaned to render the text legible.

The stone records the deaths of:

  • Alice, wife of Robert Carswell, surgeon of Paisley, who died Aug 1811 age 52 yrs.
  • Robert Carswell, Surgeon died Jan 23rd 1820 age 75 yrs.
  • Robert Carswell, father of above died April 1782 (or 1792?) age 79 yrs
