A man can't even go hoking round his ancestors' historic graveyard in peace...

It seems that George Francis Savage-Armstrong's wife, Marie Elizabeth (née Wrixon), accompanied him to ruined Ardkeen Church in the 1880s when he was almost literally digging up his ancestry – and brought her sketchbook with her. When he died he was buried on the other side of the wall with the three arched window openings.
