George Wishart (1672)

The Lord Bishop of Edinburgh was George
Wishart, minister of North Leith, who was driven
from his church for refusing to sign the Covenant.
He was the author of a Latin Memoir on Montrose, a
copy of which was suspended round the neck of the
great marquis at his execution. Wishart was buried
in Holyrood Abbey, where his magnificent tomb may
still be seen.}
