EDINBURGH EVENING COURANT, Scotland, July 10, 1746 The front page begins with a report noting: "The house of Lords having this day appointed William Ear of Kilmarnock to be try'd on Monday the 28th of July next...upon the bill of indictment for High Treason found against him, and George Earl of Cromartie..." as well, and Arthur Lord Balmerino also to be tried on the same day. These were the principal ring leaders of the failed Jacobite Rebellion and they would be found guilty. Balmerino and Kilmarnock would be executed, Cromartie would be given a pardon in 1748.
