Holyrood Abbey and Palace, Edinburgh, Scotland

Here lies the body of Thomas Lowes esq late of Ridley Hall in the county of Northumberland. One instance among thousands of the uncertainty of human life and the instability of earthly possessions and enjoyments.
Born to ample property, he for several years experienced a distressing reverse of fortune, and no sooner was he restored to his former affluence, than it pleased Divine Providence to withdraw this, together with his life.
Reader, be though taught by this to seek those riches which never can fail, and those pleasures which are at God's right hand for evermore. The gracious gift of God, and to be enjoyed through faith in Jesus Christ Our Saviour.
An only daughter over whom deceased had long watched with the tenderest care and many friends who admired his liberal and generous mind in deploring his loss.
He departed this life on the 18th day of September in the year of Our Lord 1812 and in the 61st year of his age.


The daughter mentioned seems to be his illegitimate daughter Mary Anne, who inherited Ridley Hall and sold it in 1830 to John Davidson.
