Source of earliest mention: 1833: The Yew-Trees of Britain and Ireland (1897) John Lowe.


Lowe (1897) devoted a paragraph to this yew: ‘In 1833 Sir T. Dick Lauder says that there was a fine tree in the churchyard, which measured 30 feet in girth above the roots. Miss Carlyon informs me (Jan 1895) that when her father, the Rev. E. Carlyon, was appointed in 1866 it had been long dead; the trunk had been taken up and placed in the rectory garden. Miss Gray informs me that the tree was split down the centre and appeared almost as two trees. One half was blown down in 1836, and the other before her father relinquished the living’.
