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.
