Later he seems to have changed his views and was appointed, with others, to proceed against those attending conventicles. He was created a baronet, of Nova Scotia in 1664. Elizabeth was the mother of David Dunbar, the tragic termination of whose marriage to Janet, daughter of Sir James Dalrymple, later, Viscount Stair, gave rise to the story of ‘The Bride of Lammermoor’.
