made for his arrest because he and eight of his fellow c1ansmen

had not accepted the king’s indemnity. His mother died in 1666
and his father finished his earthly race eight years later, after
a life of hardship and persecution on account of his faithfulness
to Christ and his Covenant. His sister Rosina, who married
Rodger Gordon in Holm, Carsphairn, had sasine of Knockingirrot
in November 1670. Nothing further is mentioned of him until
10th October 1684 when he was forced to sign the test. It is
given as follows :— “John McMillan of Brokloch, sworn that he
shall not harbour and resett rebells or fugitives, procures severall
testificats frae his minister and ane act of Privie Council in
favour of—-, craves the benefeit of the Test, which the Lords
allowed him (Tested). (Signed) Johne McMillane.”
We next learn that Johne McMillane of Brockloch married
Katherine Logan, and both had sasine on 14th March and 21st
September 1704, along with William, their eldest son. Katherine
died shortly afterwards. Her husband survived her twenty-one
years and a quaint tombstone marks the spot where their
remains were interred. it is inscribed thus :—
