East Preston Street cemetery, in Newington, Edinburgh:The stone was erected in 1901 by the Ninety Burns Club, to mark the grave of Jean Lorimer, or “Chloris”. She lived from 1775 – 1831, and inspired at least 24 of Burns’ songs, including (as noted on the gravestone) “The Lassie wi’ the Lintwhite hair”. The arms are the ones Robert Burns designed for himself and never got around to registering. “Argent, a holly bush and in chief a club and stock-and-horn saltireways all Proper."
and for crest: "A woodlark perching on a sprig of bay tree Proper."
