Memorial to James Jameson (1738-1760) at the South Leith Parish Church in Leith, Edinburgh, Scotland
Memorial to James Jameson (1738-1760) at the South Leith Parish Church in Leith, Edinburgh, Scotland
This is an imposing, 5 foot by 3 foot, apparently sandstone monument, with elaborate carved adornments, fixed on the wall inside the south-east porch of the church, although it was probably moved here after the last church renovation. Church records show that James' father, John Jameson, was responsible for this monument in 1761 and the script at the bottom of the monument explains that George Jameson of Edin (Edinburgh) created either the inscription or the monument itself.

Inscription: To the Memory of James Jameson, Late Surgeon to the 88th Regiment. A Youth Adorned with Every Grace Of Body and of Mind Inferior to Few in Skill And Activity in his Profession; Exceeded by None In Spirit, as a Volunteer, Who having distinguished himself, In both these Capacities, During two Campaigns of the German War, At last fell In the Battle of Campen, 26 Oct. 1760, Having that Day exhibited Manifold Proofs of Military Ardour and Address. Aged 21.
