"There is a ruinous house on the S. side of the townland supposed to have been built by the Hamilton family 2 generations back. Scrabby Church is built in the centre of an old fort near the E. end of the townland. In this fort there was once a friary and it is used as a burying place by all persuasions." [Desc. Rem.];
