The title is currently incorrect. On on page 130 of Thomson states "He was sentence to be hanged at the cross of Edinburgh" and according to the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography (a 21st century publication):
"His fate, however, had been predetermined and, on 25 May 1661, he was found guilty of treason and sentenced to death by hanging. He was executed at Edinburgh's Mercat Cross on 1 June."
