Mr. John Gregg

During the persecution under the Duke of
Lauderdale, Mr. John Gregg, who had been
formerly minister at Skirling, in Peeblesshire, was
apprehended and imprisoned in the Tolbooth for
holding a conventicle
in the
house of his
brother-in-law
Thomas Stark,
at Leith Mills.
In March,
1675, he was
removed to the
Castle on the
Bass, to be detained
there
among many
other sufferers
for conscience
sake.
