** Voluntarily left Scotland

*** Left a testimony  - these were prisoners banished and for sale as slaves.
     The Testimonies are in the Wodrow Papers. Some are quoted in a Cloud 
     of Witnesses
( Rev J H Thomson ed. 1908).  They were probably all
      held in Dunnottar before deportation via Leith.

Prison codes : where double coded  they were first imprisoned locally and then held at Dunnottar Castle from where they were deported via Leith. The Dunnottar prisoners are in Martyr Graves of Scotland. J H Thomson, Schedule of Prisoners in Dunnottar from Privy Council Warrants. Prisoners sent from Burntisland 20 May 1685.

CT Cannongate Tolbooth;
D   Dunnottar Castle;
ET Edinburgh Tolbooth;
GT Glasgow Tolbooth;
LT  Leith Tolbooth.

NOTE: There is no definitive list of prisoners; moreover both pronunciation and spelling of names was phonetic, and record keeping was poor to abysmal. Another listing of Dunnottar prisoners is given in the "Black Book of Kincardineshire" and in the records of the Edinburgh Tolbooth.
