  • Notes 
    • Baker. Probably the John Moffat, baxter, married, about 25, who witnessed the incident in 1736, in which Captain John Porteous, commander of the City Guard, opened fire on a riotous crowd. John Moffat gave evidence at Porteous' subsequent trial for murder. [Porteous was found guilty of murder, sentenced to death, but was about to be pardoned by the Queen. He was seized by the Edinburgh mob, and lynched. A subsequent conspiracy of silence shielded the perpetrators]
