(Bullock) Grandson (one ref calls him son, with a sister Chritiana) of Thomas Bowoke, he inherits after 1501 from William Bullok, was in possessions by 1505, but not entered as heir of g/f Thomas until 1523. He is entered as a Burgess in 1517, paying his dues with ‘nine score sacks of all kind of stanes for the common wall of the town’, presumably for the Flodden Wall. The 1507/8 Guildry tariff shows this as worth 6/8d or 13/4d, depending upon his status as 1st or 2nd son. Cameron, Thomas (jun).

Katherine in 1526, whose procurators are Alexanders Dee, senior and junior. Alex sen. was John’s brother, also a younger son of Robert’s, whilst the other Alex was John’s son, who inherited his burgess place in 1518. Dickson, George. George was brother of M. Thomas Dikson, below, appears as a witness in 1496 and married Elizabeth Strathauchin (by 1508), doubtless kin of the family of notaries and lenders extant at the time. George makes numerous appearances as Baillie c. 1508 on, held other burghal lands and had royal custom for his exclusive drapery. Treasury accounts show him being paid c. £40 for 14 ½ ells of Tanne velvet supplied to Ales Hume, sister of Lard of Fastcastle in 1511, whilst the next year he is paid the enormous sum of £111 for 18 ½ ells of Crammesy velvet for a gown for the Queen and £4 17s 9d for 2 ½ ells and ½ a ¼ [ell] of English Scarlet to cover the Princis cradle. He died c. 1521 and was succeeded by son James in 1524, who in turn is succeeded by his younger brother Thomas in 1527. George’s daughters Elizabeth and Jonet receive their parts (as co-heirs of their late brother James) of another tenement in 1534. (Thomas inherits other Edinburgh lands too) Elizabeth was the eldest daughter, married firstly John Napier, from whom she inherited other lands after his death by 1528, and secondly (by 1529) burgess Alexander Preston or Bartoun. Younger sister Jonet married burgess George Cant. Barton and Cant both have Fife lands of possible marital origin. Dickson, Master Thomas. Thomas was at St Andrews from 1488-1493 and as well as being prebendary of Terray, which he recieves gratis from the King in 1511-12 (together with the kirklands, house and glebe, in free barony), he is also described as Chaplain in 1491 and 1496, witnessing Creichton and Cant sasines (including Strabrok lands – see below), minister of Trinitarian House of Houstone and Provincial of the Order 1502, Provost of Guthrie 1506-12, Dean of Restalrig 1510-13, Canon of Aberdeen 1511, Rector of Bute and has benefice of Leswaid in 1512. He receives many payments from the treasury in 1511-13 for such diverse duties as – 40s for saying 60 masses in Dunfermline, 17s 6d to ‘by fische and uthir stuff to have up to the Kingis great schip in Quenis ferry’, £5 for five trigentalis said in St Andrews, £5 6s 8d for drawing up the charter involving himself and John Dishington of Ardross’s dealings over the lands of Tulliquandlane, which he held in wadset and fell to his two Dikson sisters, Janet and Elizabeth, 20 years later. He also receives £3 in part payment for ‘lining the Kingis gret parchment porteus’, £4 10s for ‘laying down to priests in Linlithgow’, 14s to do errand for the King and appears as co-payee with Archibald Earl of Angus, Robert Graham of Fintry, Henry Lovell of Ballumbie and William Carmichael. As well as his Cowgate lands he held property in Leith and knew how to work wadsets. He is believed to have been killed at Flodden in 1513 and is definitely described as deceased in 1521. Dickson, sir John, John Dykson was at St Andrews from 1510-12, was appointed rector of Pentland parish church in 1521, by John Hepburn, prior of St Andrews, at the presentation of Sir William Sinclair of Roslin, became Provost of Roslin by 1524,

Chaplain of Altar of St Katrine in St Giles c. 1530 and was possibly minister/exhorter at Peebles 1560-67. Dingwall, sir John. See separate biography below. Hamilton, Sir Patrick of Kincavill (near Linlithgow). Grandson of James III, brother of the Earl of Arran and cousin of Sir James Hamilton of Finnart. Treasury accounts show him ‘schuting at the schort buttis and syne at the long buttis’ with the King, whilst in 1506, 34s is paid to John Hertseid, pailyoun man ‘to fetch pailyouns agane the fechting of the lord Hammylton and the Franch Knight, and for six carriage hors with thaim’. [Sir Pat won a jousting match against public challenger Sir John Coupance under the walls of the Castle on 26/11/1506, the King signalling Hamilton’s win by throwing his hat over the castle walls]. Patrick receives 16 ells ‘dames’ at 24s, presumably for clothing for the event. He bought Cowgate lands 1512 from Thomas Williamson, nephew and heir of Sir John Lamb. Entered to the Guild on the 4th Octeber 1515, he becomes Provost of Edinburgh three weeks later. He was slain in a skirmish called ‘cleanse the Causeway’ in the High St of Edinburgh in 1520, when he is succeeded by son & heir James. Another son, also Patrick, rose to fame on the scaffold at St Andrews in 1528, when he was tried for heresy by Beaton and others, then burnt at the stake as the first and most famous reformation martyr. Ker, Master Matthew. He graduated from Paris University in 1498, was vicar of Peterculter 1503, attended St Andrews from 1506-08, was Dean of Christianity and Commissary south of the Forth 1505 x 1511, Provost of Kirk of Field 1511-16, Commissary of Lothian 1516. Held other lands in Edinburgh, other than provost’s land. From his association with other members of the family, he is believed to be descended from the Kers of Yare (Yair); he was dead by 1520, and seemingly succeeded at St Mary’s by prebendary Sir Alexander Couper, another Paris graduate (law, 1500) and founding member of the College of Justice in 1532, alongside sir John Dingwall. Master Richard Bothwell is the next Provost, from 1525. Raperlaw. The family first appear as Edinburgh merchants in 1438, when David R and others from Edinburgh and Aberdeen are petitioning Henry VI for restitution for ‘Goods of their own and their maistres & friends, lately taken in two Flemish and Sprucian vessels on the high seas, during the truce’. The King gives them safe conduct back to Scotland to gather evidence for their case, since their ‘Markes, letters and paupires were embesaillez at the capture’. William was possibly born around this time, but no more is known of him at present, other than his land-holdings. Strathauchin. A noted family of burgesses, notaries and financiers in Edinburgh at the time, generally taken today as ‘Strachan’. Elizabeth married George Dykson, above, Henry and his successor John (son of another John) hold wadsets over

Raperlaw and Inchecok lands, whilst Vincent Strathauchin’s protocol books have mostly survived, providing many references for this work. Dingwall, sir John. John is believed to be the younger son (or possibly grand-son) of the William Dingwall of Kildun who was slaughtered along with seven-score other Dingwalls on the slopes of Ben Wyvis in 1452 by Munro of Foulis and others. In 1464, Thomas Dingwall, junior of Kildun, is mentioned alongside his brother John, and in 1466 Thomas junior is mentioned as heir to Thomas Dingwall, subdean of Ross (and treasurer of Caithness 1448-1454), who died by 1477 and was likely brother to the murdered William. [A previous William de Dingwall was subdean of Ross 1371 and Dean from 1372-89] A John Digwell or Digwaill matriculated in 1471 and graduated as Magister from St Andrews in 1474, which could fit with his being conceived before 1452, but conflicts with his common appellation ‘sir’. [Thomas is succeeded at Kildun by his son William after 1507]. Sir John certainly comes by the Privy Seal ‘Gift of wards of all lands and annual rentis with mylnez & fishings’, previously of the late William Dingwall of Kildun, in 1527. This could refer to the William above, or to his grand-son William, who was also slaughtered by sixteen folk prior to 1531-2 and succeeded by another Thomas. If this Kildun laird, who does not appear with this designation until 1537, was a minor at the time of his father’s death c. 1527, this would account for the ward duties/rental returns being assigned to an adult member of the family. In 1510, John is variously described as Notary Public and Master of the Hospital of St Mary in Tevidale, and on the 1st of January 1511-12, he is granted a Precept of Legitimation under the Privy Seal for his five bastards -Henry, James, Katrine, Isobel and Jonet. In 1520, he reserves the life-rent of one of his Cowgate properties to himself and a certain Agnes Johneston. By 1516, he is Archdean of Caithness, before becoming Succentor of Moray by 1523, a position he is thought to have exchanged with Dunbar for the Chancellorship of Aberdeen, which post he held from 1525 until his death in 1532/3. He also held the post of Provost of Trinity College Church in Edinburgh from 1525 until his death. During this time, he also appears as :- Dominus (sir), 1511, Rector of Olrik in Caithness at 10 merks and of Kilteyrn in Ross at 20 merks in 1512, Rector of Strabrok in St Andrews Diocese, (c. 1524), Vicar of Wemyss (1531), Protonotary Apostilic (frequently) and one of the founding Senators of the College of Justice (1532), in whose records some Latin verses by Buchanan exist about Dingwall:Nomine Joannes Diguallis origine flamen Flamine natus erat, quem tegit iste lapis; E patrio censu nec nummo ditior uno; Scriptura primas accumulavit opes.

Sedulus hinc petri coluit mensorius urbam, Hinc tumor, hinc Gloria luxus, opes; Et velut hinc etiam traxisset stemmata gentis Ornatur titulis porma? superba novis.

As well as his extensive benefices, holdings in the Cowgate and the wards/rents of Kildun, John also had a pretentious mansion, dubbed ‘Dingwall Castle’, thought to lie close to or within the site of the old GPO building. [See Gordon’s drawing of Trinity College Church and castle ruins in his map]. He also managed to add the tack of Wester Lumphoy in Balerno (1524), the ‘principal messuagium, mansion, pomarium et hortum de Wester Strabrok’ (1524), assisted the annexation of the church of Dunottar to Trinity College (1525-6), claimed £10 p.a. out of the burgh of Edinburgh (1526), was granted wards and rents of Gairloch (1528), lands of Blaire in Fife (1529) and a parcel of rentals in 1531. Treasury accounts also how him handling large sums of public money due to various contractors; in 1512, Dingwall and William Monypenny pay £104 3s 6d to James Makesone for mariners’ wages for the month of June, then John pays another £78 3d for May’s wages (unentered before – one wonders why), £91 15s 6d to Johne Murray in Diep for mariners to bring a large consignment of timber from France, £40 (with Lord Sinklere) to two Falconers for their expenses going to Orkney & Shetland to obtain hawks, 20 French Crowns to the treasury ‘for the burse’, pays shipbuilding accounts and receives ‘six score uncis silver put in wed’ (pledge) to him. At 13/4 per ounce, this is another £80, although the sum of all the contributed silver in this transaction is out by £8 2s 6d in c. £114. One wonders what became of the balance. In 1513 he receives 44s 4d for ‘mending the Kingis granellis’ – meaning unknown at present. He also appears as an auditor of the Treasury Accounts in 1516, 1524, 1527 and 1529-30, amongst other worthies such as Gavin Dunbar, James Kincragy, William Scot of Balweary, James (chancellor), Dean of Glasgow, Alex, and Abbot of Cambuskenneth etc. A modern accountant might shed some light on their accuracy! Given his propensity for spending others’ money (see below), it is quite possible that there may be some discrepancies, other than the one quoted above. Whilst this extensive collection of benefices, rents, fees, wards, lands, mistresses and natural offspring typifies the causes of the reformation, it is Dingwall’s later philandering that so incensed John Knox in his ‘History of the Reformation’, which portion is quoted in full below:“…..But here follows the most merry of all. Sandie Furrour, who had been imprisoned seven years in the Tower of London, [found] Sir John Dingwall, according to the charitie of churchmen, [had] entertained his wife and wasted the poor man’s substance. For which cause, upon his returning, he spake more liberally of priests than they could bear, and so was declared to be accused of heresy, and called to his answer to St Andrews. He leapt up merrily upon the scaffold and, casting a gawmond, said, ‘Where are the rest of the players?’ Master Andrew Oliphant, offended therewith, said, ‘It shall be no play to you, Sir, before that ye depart’, and so he began to read his accusation, the first article whereof was – “That he despised the Mass”.

Addyman Associates Ltd

South Bridge / Cowgate Fire : Edinburgh
His [Furrour’s] answer was, ‘I hear more Masses in eight days than three Bishops there sitting says in a year.’ Accused secondly – “Of contempt of the sacraments”, he said, ‘The priests were the most common contemners of sacraments and especially of matrimony’, ….and that he witnessed by any of the priests there present, and named the men’s wives with whom they had meddled, and especially Sir John Dingwall, who had seven years together abused his own wife and consumed his substance; and said, ‘Because I complained of such injuries, I am here summoned, and accused, as one who is worthy to be burnt. For God’s sake, will ye take wives of your own, that I and others, whose wives ye have abused, may be revenged upon you.’ Then Bishop Gavin Dunbar, named “Old Bishop of Aberdeen”, thinking to justify himself before the people, said, ‘Carl, thou shalt not know my wife.’ The said Alexander answered, ‘My Lord, ye are too old; but, with the grace of God, I shall drink with your daughter or I depart.’ And thereat was smiling of the best, and loud laughter of some; for the bishop had a daughter married with Andrew Balfour in that same town. Then the bishops bade -‘Away with the carl.’ But he answered, ‘Nay; I will not depart this hour; for I have more to speak against the vices of priests than I can express this whole day.’ And so, after divers purposes, they commanded him to burn his Bill. And he demanding the cause, they said, ‘Because ye have spoken these articles whereof ye are accused.’ His answer was, ‘The muckle Devil bear them away that first and last said them.’ And so he took the Bill and, chewing it, he after spat it in Mr Andrew Oliphant’s face, saying, ‘Now burn it or drown it, whether ye will; ye hear no more of me. But I must have somewhat of every one of you to begin my pack again, which a priest and my wife, a priest’s whore, has spent.’ And so every prelate and rich priest, glad to be quit of his evil, gave him somewhat; and so departed he, for he knew nothing of religion.”

[This incident probably occurred after 1528, as in Knox it appears just after he quotes John Lindsay’s famous ‘Reek of Master Patrick Hamilton’ speech to Bishop James Beaton (see Hamilton of Kincavill tenement, below), and definitely before 1532/3, when Gavin Dunbar and John Dingwall are both dead. It is not yet known why or when Sandy Furrour was incarcerated in the Tower, but from the vehemence of his outbursts on the scaffold, one might imply that his injuries were recently discovered, putting his imprisonment at c. 1520-4. It is also possible, however, that his imprisonment coincided with Dingwall’s siring of five natural children before 1511, and that he harboured a grudge against the adulterer for the next twenty years. An Alexander Furrour appears in the Exchequer Rolls in 1503 in a batch of thirty persons, receiving 4 Merks each, and some 18 further repicients sharing £62, alongside familiar Cowgate/High St names such as Henry Alan (See Bish Dunkeld), William Fery, James Lamb, John Knox, and Perthshire names such as Charles Maxton, James Reidheugh, Murray(s) and John Strogeith . He appears again in 1507, when he receives £10 from the royal purse, possibly shared with another.

Considering the rarity of the surname Furrour/Ferrier in the first place, and both royally-connected Alexanders, they are believed to be one and the same. No more is kent of him, at present, but it is unlikely that a Scots ‘nobody’ would have survived seven years in the Tower. If they are the same, and the John Digwell who graduated in 1474 is identical with Sir John Dingwall, then both would have been of a decent age for their time in 1528-32. Furrour c. 50, Dingwall c. 80 years of age. Andrew Oliphant was probably from the Kellie in Fife branch of the Oliphants (or their Linlithgow cadet branch), as all other recorded contemporary Andrew Os were known to be either dead by 1528/9 or married with kids. He graduated from St Andrews University in 1527, appears as a notary public in Linlithgow in 1534, was sent to assist Gavin Dunbar, Bishop of Glasgow (and nephew of Bishop Dunbar, above), in the trial of Russell and Kennedy 1539, Dean of Kinghorn from 1539-44, Dean of Linlithgow 1544/5, vicar of Invertig 1545, Dean of Fife (St Andrews and Crail) 1549, notary public & vicar pensioner of Abernethy 1549, confidential agent of Cardinal Beaton at Rome, then notary Public at Rome, in service of Archbishop Hamilton, 1553-4, and chaplain to Archbishop of St Andrews in 1560, when he is taken prisoner by the congregation. He appears in Edinburgh protocols in 1554 and 1563, handling large sums of money, such as ‘fifty double ducats’. Gavin Dunbar (sen) was from the senior Dunbar branch, a son of Sir Alexander of Westfield in Moray. Graduating ‘master’ from St Andrews in 1475, he was Dean of Moray before 1487, Clerk of Register 1501, Archdeacon principal of St Andrews with a mansion in Edinburgh 1504-5, and Bishop of Aberdeen from 1518 until his death in 1532. His nephew Gavin, a yr. son of Sir John Dunbar of Mochrum, was also St Andrews educated, then tutor to James V in 1517, Dean of Moray 1518, Prior of Whithorn, Bishop of Glasgow 1524, Lord chancellor 1528-43, Abbot of Inchaffray 1538, died 1547, after involvement with more heretical trials. Furrour mentions ‘three bishops there sitting’; Dunbar is named, the presence of the incumbent bishop of St Andrews, James Beaton -- uncle of Cardinal David -- can be sensibly implied, the third bishop unknown.]

Rubble composed from crushed lime mortar 50 cm deep within the north of the trench and 80-90 cm mixed with rubble fragments, some of which deep at the southern half show signs of working and a few low fired red brick mixed through Wall line 35cm wide running east west, Forms part of the south bridge build 1784-88 continuing a wall line stub from the south bridge. Rubble built, well constructed with a hard light cream lime mortar Step out of 10cm from the lower part of walling 002 to the north Most likely forms the foundation for the walling 002, the step out only occurs on the north face of the wall, the corresponding area of walling on the south face does not step out but is not pointed up as if it had been built up against something, the north face of the step out is pointed up as if it was accessible to the builders

The surface is composed from clay 005 to the south and ash/charcoal 006 to the north. Clay deposit below surface 004, a mix of May represent redeposited natural clays from the building yellow brown lumps of sticky clay mixed of wall 002 with dark brown clay and occasional flecks of charcoal, compacted Charcoal and ash deposit, formed up from compacted layers of ash and charcoal from 0.8- 1m down from current ground surface Charcoal deposit within south half of the trench partially exposed at the limit of excavation at the foot of wall 002 but not excavated. Lump of soil formed from a mid brown clayey soil overlying 007. Located to the north west corner of the south half of the trench Possibly related to masonry 009 or else just a dump within rubble build up 012 The upper surface of this deposit forms part of surface 004, directly below this is a reddish burnt stony clay so this may well represent a builders fire during the construction of the south bridge, a thin deposit of redeposited clay on top of the ash may be related to extinguishing the fire

South Bridge / Cowgate Fire : Edinburgh

Appendix 1.7 : Architectural Fragments A number of architectural fragments were noted within the surviving building fabric of the Cowgate Fire Site. These have been located on the ground plan below with a brief list and description. The worked stones show a continuum and reuse of previous structures within the fabric of more recent structures. It is possible to recognise a range of periods, from the roll mouldings of the 16th and 17th century to the distinctive droving tool marks of the 18th and 19th centuries. This is useful in providing terminus ante quems to certain elevations (like the southeast of Hasties Close) which appear much older than they actually are. This is not withstanding both the fact that most walls within the site are built on the lines of earlier boundaries and the incorporation (as with much of Building 13 – south elevations) of earlier fabric.
