Mock Scottish Prince

In June 1745, a native of Fife, David Gillies, assumed the name and character of Charles Stuart, Prince of Wales.
He went about privately, and, by conferring honours and places, obtained a good deal of money from weak people.
Warrants having been issued for his apprehension, he fled, but was caught at Selkirk.

The justices of the county, after consulting the crown lawyers, sentenced the mock prince and his court, consisting of two men and two wnmen, to be banished the shire by the beat of drum, attended by the hangman, as vagrants; and this was duly carried into effect on the 14th of July.
