Grey Abbey Grounds,
Adjacent to Grey Abbey Graveyard.
South side of the village of Grey Abbey, on the east side of Strangford Lough on the Ards peninsula, and adjacent to Rosemont/Greyabbey House.
These memorials are inside the ruins of the abbey.
Grey Abbey was a Cistercian priory founded in 1193 by Affreca de Courcy, a daughter of a Manx King, Godfred Olafsson.
There is a figure in chancel said to be that of Affreca and another is a side chapel which may be John de Courcy.
Also a grave slab brought from Black Abbey.
It declined and was in ruins by 1580.
After being granted to Sir Hugh Montgomery, it was reroofed in 1626 and used as a parish church until 1778.
