Birth: Apr., 1754
Death: Nov. 26, 1832

"By this stone are laid the remains of Wellwood Maxwell of Barncleuch, who was born 29th Octr., 1747, and who died 11th June, 1833. Pious without ostentation, religious without intolerance, he sought to do his duty to God without offending men. A good and kind father, he deserved the respect and secured the affection of his numerous family. In friendship constant and sincere, in social intercourse affable, hospitable, humane- He passed thro' life in cordial union during 55 years with Catherine Maxwell, his beloved wife, daughter of John Maxwell of Terraughtie & Munches, who bom in April, 1754, died 26th November, 1832, and lies interred beside him. A lady of a vigorous and active mind, obliging, courteous, charitable supporting her husband throughout in every religious, parental, and social duty; and like him leaving this life esteemed, beloved, regretted."
