Note

John Knox is traditionally supposed, when he found times too dangerous for him in Edinburgh after the murder of Rizzio, to have fled, first, to Ayrshire, and then to Galloway, where he sought safety in Barholm Castle about 1566. The ‘New Statistical Account’ of 1845 confirms this on the authority of John McCulloch (vi) of Barholm, who had learned from an old man, Andrew Hughan, who was running footman to his great great grandfather, that is, John McCulloch (iii) of Barholm, that he recollected John Knox’s signature on the wall of the small arched apartment or bedroom at the head of the staircase. The family of Barholm are said to have been zealous supporters of the principles of the Reformation.
