"William was also known as the Reverend William Duncan, was born January 07, 1627/28 in Perth near the Firth of Tay, Perthshire, Scotland. He was beheaded January 02, 1690/91 near Glasgow, Lanard, Scotland. William fell martyr during the religious troubles that afflicted Scotland at the time Charles the Second was restored to the throne, and William refused to take the Jacobite oath. He received his degree in theology from the King's College at Aberdeen on 1648. When William was ejected from office for informing against members of the resistance to Episcopalianism, his children fled to Virginia where they settled in the region of Northern Neck."
