Robert Burns and the Covenanters - again

I've blogged about this before, but have just found some new information in The Covenanters of Ayrshire by Rev R Lawson (Paisley, 1887). On page 14 he says:

"...the Kirkoswald copy of the Covenant is inserted in the Kirk Session Records there, and is signed, amongst others, by the maternal ancestors of Robert Burns..."

Kirkoswald is between Maybole and Turnberry, on the A77 that many Ulster folk will be familiar with when driving from Stranraer to Glasgow.
