12th century worship, now in ruins. Altered in the 17th century for Protestant knee-bend. Chancellor Seton, first Earl of Dunfermline is buried in a vault to the West. The Barnbougle Moubray family, who settled here in 1511, have plenty of burial plots. The Moubrays appear to have a splurge of seamen dribbling through the branches of the family tree as can be seen from the inscriptions on the gravestones - some distinguished Naval careers. Many tombstones around the graveyard feature the eerie skull and crossbones. More:
