This burying ground was on an eminence beside the ground trenched, and called the Gallows Knowe, and hence it is naturally supposed to have been the place of public execution. This burying ground must have been used before the Abolition of heritable jurisdictions, and when the proprietors of the Estate of Kinross had the power of Pit and Gallows, with regard to the bodies discovered, they were again committed to the earth, and the spot where they were found has been planted anew."

[Statistical Account] 022 [situation] 1 1/2 Miles E. [East] of Balado. [Quotation] "In the month of April 1829, some labourers employed by John W. Williamson, found about 2 feet below the surface, imbedded in what appeared to be travelled earth, an ancient seal of pure gold, of a circular shape, eight tenths of an inch in diameter, and and two-tenths of an inch in thickness. It has two small wings also of gold joined in the centre by a neat hinge, which folds flat on the upper side of the seal, and when raised serves for a handle. This very curious piece of workmanship, weighing four sovereigns, appears from its flat shape to have been intended for the pocket; and has engraved on it the Royal arms of Scotland impaled on the dexter side, with those of England on the Sinister, it was at once considered according to the laws of heraldry, as the private seal of or Signet of a Scottish King, who had married an English Princess. The Seal was Shewn to several Edinburgh antiquaries; and among others to the late Sir Walter Scott, the late Sir Patrick Walker, Mr. Auriol Hay, and Mr. W. Clark, all of whom were decidedly of the opinion, that it was the personal seal of the unfortunate James IV., who fell on the fatal field of Flodden. James, it is well Known, Married Margaret, daughter of Henry VII. of England." New Stat. Acct.
