A nearby plaque relates that a party of Jacobites entered the town in 1715, proclaimed the 'Old Pretender' James VIII at the cross and demanded money from the town council. After a no doubt hastily convened council meeting the bailies decided to pay up "in order to prevent further damage to the toune", whilst reaffirming "ther alledgian[ce] to ther righteous sovraign King George".
