William Boyd, Earl of Kilmarnock, was captured at Culloden following the Jacobite Uprising of 1745, in which he fought.
Author James Foster somewhat sympathetically discusses the behaviour of Kilmarnock after his sentencing for treason, and execution on Tower Hill on the 18th August, 1746. Due to the appeals of a number of fellow Freemasons, his sentence was reduced from hanging, drawing and quartering to a beheading.
