Within these wall are deposited the Bodies of

of ALEX STIVEN who to the end of his days will 
deplore her death, which happened upon the 25th day 
of November 1783 in the 23rd year of her age was 
remarkable of her she was a mother without knowing it, 
and a wife without letting her husband know it, except 
by her kind indulgences to him. 

........................................

On the northern horn of the beautiful bay of Plymouth which lies on the north coast of Tobago are to be seen the ruins of what was once the substantial residence of president SCOTT It is still said that if he had not retired when he did from the Government Service he would surely have been made Governor of the Island. But when told this he always answered that his house was as good as Government House and in it he would sooner rest than work in Government House. 
In the grounds of this ruined house, and some ten or twelve yards from the western wall, lie buried in a substantial vault the remains of his favourite daughter and her new born child. Although the vault is scarcely recognisable from the ruins and rubbish which cover it, the top is in a fair state of preservation and as will be seen from the inscription is not without interest. To some people it presents a little puzzle; to others it is full of romantic sentiment. The stone which has worn remarkably well is of a fine quality slate, such as is commonly used for the roofs of vaults and mural tablets. It measures six feet eight inches long, three feet four inches broad, and is five inches thick with a half inch level round the upper edge. Considering its age and the use to which the sorrowing husband put it in the first instance it seems a great pity that it should be allowed to lie in the state of neglect in which it is at present.
