This article discusses the monumental brass found in the ruined chancel of the kirk at Ormiston. The author uses the form and decoration of the monument to suggest that it was originally made at the end of the sixteenth century. He goes on to discuss the content of the inscription and gives a short history of the Cockburn family, who owned the barony of Ormiston until the eighteenth century. The inscription itself is transcribed and the article includes an illustration of the brass.
Meeting notes for 13 May, 1861 are appended.
