Father Patrick

In 1560 eighty Observatines led by Father John Patrick sailed from from Scotland to the Netherlands. Although the Edinburgh friars formed part of the contingent one or two decided to remain in the city although the precise number is not known. Members of the Mendicant Orders choosing to remain in Scotland received an annual pension consisting of £16 Scots by order of the Privy Council.
