On a gravestone at Foulden, Berwickshire I have

"gulielmi Landells, Inquilim de Greenknow 18.5.1816 61 yrs, wife Isabella Mason 18.10.1810 61 yrs. quingquagesimo secundo"

Now I can get this is William Landells and the bit at the end is 62 - perhaps in their 62nd year? But Inquilim is thwarting me.

Can anybody help?

thanks Steve, thought it had to be a misspelling of some kind and indweller makes sense. A William Landells paid horse tax in 1797 at Greenknow so I was interested if it meant tenant but indweller will do.
