The following inscription is copied from a Grave-stone in Comber Church-yard, which is said to have been brought thither from Greyabbey on the removal of the family thence to Comber.
Here lieth these bodies of Robert SINKLER, who died in 1666, aged 71 years, and his wife Giles Gordon, who died in 1673, aged 74 years; also their son John SINKLER, who died 1681, aged 61 years.
