Most of the ministers
among the above named  seem to have come from
Dumfries & Galloway region, including:

Samuel Arnot  of

John Semple of

Gabriel Semple of
Kirkpatrick Durham.

John Guthrie  of 

John Welsh of

Alexander Peden of
New Glenluce.

William Veitch.
Chaplain to Sir Hugh Campbell of Cawdor until 1664 before
he was  forced out by the Bishop of  Moray.
Helped the 9th Earl escape from Scotland and involved in
the 1685 invasion by the Earl, which failed. Major
Learmont was his son in law.

Robert Trail, son of
Robert Trail, minister in Edinburgh 1661.

James Mitchell tried
to assassinate Archbishop Sharp in 1668, but failed.

John Carstairs had
earned Sharp`s spite by witnessing the declaration of
James Wood in 1664 that he had not renounced Presbytery –
as maliciously alleged.

Mr Patton is probably
Robert Paton, minister of Terreglese.

John Crookshanks, an
Irish Presbyterian minister was in fact killed and buried
at Rullion Green along with his companion Andrew
McCormick. They were both refugees from Ireland having
been involved in the Captain Blood  plot to rebel
against King Charles.

Mr Orr may have been
connected to the Lochwinnoch Orrs who had Covenanters
among their number. He might also be related ( father ) to
Alexander Orr  (1650-1710) who was minister at Beith 
in 1689 and then at St Quivox until his death.
