    Muiravonside Churchyard

    Monumental Inscription Index

    An A-Z Index of names inscribed on all surveyed stones

    Muiravonside Churchyard is situated on Vellore Road, off Main Street, Maddiston (B805).

    Whether monuments or gravestones are very grand and ornate or are the humblest of stones tucked away in some forgotten corner of a

    Churchyard, they represent part of our heritage and although etched in stone, their inscriptions are disappearing at an alarming rate.

    Whilst some may still be standing, others have either toppled or have been laid flat, all eventually suffering from the elements,

    becoming so weathered or eroded that their inscriptions have faded or at worst, disappeared completely. The care and attention once

    given to tending that special place long gone shrubs and weeds taking over, obscuring or even hiding a once prominent site. In

    many old Churchyards, gravestones are removed or relocated to assist in the maintenance of the burial ground or because the land is

    up for re-development and can end up as nothing more than a path.

    Monumental Inscriptions or gravestones are far from being the permanent records our forefathers hoped would last forever

    so I hope my efforts over the past years in photographing and transcribing some of the old and not so old Churchyards, Cemeteries

    and Burial Grounds in Stirlingshire and a few surrounding areas may help to preserve this valuable information before much of it is

    lost forever.

    From the inscription one can see the parents and their children, also that at least one, even if their only daughter, was married.

    Ages at death can assist in determining not only years of birth, but can indicate the time span over which children were born.

    On this particular stone, by using only the information on the inscription, the first childs birth (John) would have been in 1851,

    the last child (Samuel) in 1867, so this couples family were born over at least a 15 year period.

    This information provides enough detail to make internet searches both faster and more economical particularly as the

    Marshall Family would appear on both the 1851 and 1861 Scottish Census Returns.

    This stone shows the common practice of repeated use of two particular forenames i.e. John and James.

    JOHN died in 1853 aged 2 years

    Muiravonside Churchyard Index

    Where possible and legible, Maiden Names and Married Names have been listed as separate entries, e.g.

    Smith, Jane (nee Jones) - Married Name being Smith, Maiden Name or nee, Jones

    Jones, Jane (Smith) - Maiden Name being Jones, Married Name, Smith

    On occasion where only a year has been entered on the following Index, this refers to a year inscribed on the stone.

    It may not necessarily be the date of death of one of the individuals concerned, but could be the date of purchase of the lair, or the date on which the stone was erected.

    Should only initials appear on inscriptions, these are usually the initials of husband and wife. Often there is more than one stone to the same family or couple and the Initials can then be verified.

    (Women very rarely being referred to by their Married Name)

    Any name(s) appearing in bold italic letters refer to individuals found listed on stones in other locations and the inscriptions indicate that their Place of Burial was Muiravonside Churchyard.

    (Details of these locations can be found at the end of the Index)
