Notes

OSA xv (1795): 'two chapels in the small isle of Papa, dedicated to St. Nicholas and to St. Bride respectively. St. Nicholas's chapel was almost entire twelve years ago; the dimensions within walls 15; feet by 12; the quire, 7 feet by 9; this quire is covered with a complete stone arch, but the chapel hath been lately demolished by the tenant, in order that he with the stones of it might build a new barn. St. Bride's chapel and Quire,now in ruins, are nearly of the same dimensions as those of St. Nicholas.'
