Notes

This chapel appears to be the chapel of 'Futhcul' mentioned in Arb. Lib. i, no. 197 (1189 x 1199) confirming the church of Tarves and the chapel of Futhcul to Arbroath Abbey. Futhcul must underlie the name Croft of Fochel, which appears on OS maps at NJ320845. There is no trace of a chapel now in the burial ground (NMRS).
