I believe I am descended from George's son Sir Gilbert Innes of Stow through one of his 67 or so illegitimate children!
(requested on 10 01 2013)
I am trying to trace my family's history. The Mitchell-Innes name dates back to 1840 when William Mitchell inherited a fortune from Gilbert Innes of Stow (Governor of Royal Bank of Scotland)and created the name. I dont think this is that Gilbert Innes's grave as he never married although had many illegitimate children! Thank you in advance for your trouble.

Notes about Greyfriars Convenanters Prison Private Cemetery

THE COVENANTERS' PRISON Behind these gates lies part of the southern section of Greyfriars Kirkyard which was used in 1679 as a prison for over one thousand supporters of the National Covenant who had been defeated by Government forces at the battle of Bothwell Brig on 22 June. For over four months these men were held here without any shelter, each man being allowed 4 ounces of bread a day. Kindly citizens were sometimes able to give them more food. Some of the prisoners died here, some were tried and executed for treason, some escaped, and some were freed after signing a bond of loyalty to the Crown. All those who were persecuted and died for their support of the National Covenant in the reigns of Charles II and James VII are commemorated by the Martyrs' Memorial on the north-eastern wall of the kirkyard. The Covenant, which was first signed in Greyfriars Kirk in 1638, promised to defend Presbyterianism from intervention by the Crown. In November 1679 the remaining 257 men, who had been sentenced to transportation overseas, were taken to Leith and placed on board a ship bound for the American colonies; nearly all were drowned when this ship was wrecked in the Orkney islands (where there is a monument in their memory), but 48 of the prisoners survived. The section of the kirkyard used to imprison the Covenanters lay outside the existing south wall, and included the area now covered by buildings on Forrest Row. The area behind the gate was laid out for burials in 1705 and contains many fine monuments, but these did not exist at the time of the prison.
