Why they died
- Heads of John Parker, Gavin Hamilton, James Hamilton and Christopher Strang, who suffered at Edinburgh, Decr 7th 1666:
Stay passenger, take notice what thou reads;
At Edinburgh lie our bodies, here our heads,
Our right hands stood at Lanark, these we want,
Because with them we swore the Covenant.
