The Trial of Thomas Cunningham of Montgreenan in 1683

Lord Fountainhall records under 8 January, 1683, that ‘[Thomas] Cunyghame of Montgrenan, … is pannelled of hy treason, for being at Bothuel-bridge; and, on his oune confession, is found guilty by the assyse.’ (Lauder, Historical Notices, I, 395.)

The Reverend Law simply records under January, 1683, that ‘One Montgrennan also made prisoner for being at the late rebellion..’ (Law, Memorialls, 242.)
