Monument of the Porterfields at Kilmacolm

Description: 

The image depicts a momument, inscribed with an epitaph, in two parts: the topmost figure appears to be the top of a momument, while the figure below it may be the base. The upper part is decorated with the initials "PSB," as well as with symbols reminiscent or perhaps representative of a coat of arms. Beneath this decoration are six lines of engraved writing: "BVREIT HEIR LVIS/ THAT DETH DEFYIS/ OF PORTER FIELDS THE RACE/ QV HO BE THE SPIRT/ TO CHRIST UNI TE/ ARE HEIRS OF GLOIR THROUGH GRACE/ 1560." The bottom part of the momument is also engraved with six lines of writing: "THIS ANA GRAME VNFOLD MV BVILDAR SAL/ HIS NAME QVHA VIL INTO THIS SENTENCE SEIK/ TIL FLIE THE IL MAK GVID REPORT OF AL/ GVILLIAM SAL FIND PORTERFEILD OF THAT ILK/ ZEIRS SEVINTI?
