References Relevant to David RAMSAY
Since the publication of the article, I have discovered that in 1642 David RAMSAY was the defendant in an action for debt by John ROWLAND gent (TNA: KB27-1677). This is presumably one of many actions for debt that were initiated against Ramsay and led to his imprisonment in the Gatehouse in 1642.
