      "The battle of Bothwell Bridge was also fought on a Sabbath day - exactly three weeks after the battle of Drumclog. There were a goodly number of persons belonging to Cambusnethan at Bothwell, and were, in consequence, brought to trouble, suffering and loss. One of them was James Gourlay, who tenanted the farm of Overtown."
