Maxwells

This stone was erected in memory of Hugh and David Maxwell of Ballywalter whose bodies are here interr'd. They fell in an attack made on the town of Newtownards the 10th Jun 1798.
Lo Erin's genius hov'ring o'er the tomb With mournful eye surveys the hallow'd sod Where sleep her bravest sons in earth's dark womb Tears fall, hope whispers "cease, they dwell with God"...
