A very gruesome find



The Rev William Campbell of Lilliesleaf parish wrote that:

“A numerous party of Presbyterians who were marching to join their brethren at Bothwell Bridge, being attacked by some troops of Dragoons fled to Bewlie Moss for refuge; unable to extricate themselves, many perished in the mud. When the old church of Lilliesleaf was taken down in 1771 there was found below one of the seats, a coffin containing several human heads. We may suppose that they had been cut off by friends, that they might not be fixed upon the ports of neighbouring Boroughs, as it was not possible to drag out without being discovered.
