Family History

Unfortunately time and weather took a harsh toll on the surface of this monument, so badly that virtually the entire face has been scoured clean of all its identifying marks.

The faintest trace can be found of some lettering which may indicate a connection with Malletsheugh, a hamlet and farms, situated to the south of Newton of Mearns.

Its design is consistent with earlier stones in the kirkyard created in the 17th and 18th centuries.

The stone is of poor quality whinstone and despite it being of a slab design has failed to fulfil its intended purpose as a grave memorial tablet.
