He dem., and had his indulgence declared void by the Privy Council 10th Jan. 1684, but was again imprisoned for refusing to find caution to desist from preaching in future. Being old and infirm he was released on 22nd Jan., caution having been found. He died before 20th Sept. 1687, aged about 68. He marr.

He came to Colmonell in 1650, and along with so many other ministers was deprived of his charge in 1662. In 1683 he was in prison, but how long he had been, is not recorded. He was liberated, August 9, on finding caution to appear when called. He seems to have been the indulged minister at Newmilns, where it is likely John Nisbet met him. He was soon again in trouble. While assisting at a communion with the indulged minister of his old parish of Colmonell he was led, owing to the great crowd in attendance, to preach in the open air instead of the inside of the church. For this so-called grave offence, he was summoned before the Council, January 10, 1684, and ordained to find caution not to preach, or remove from the kingdom. He refused to find caution, and was ordered again to prison. On January 22, the Council liberated him, “being old and infirm,” on the condition that he keep no conventicle, under the penalty of 5000 merks.

John & Fergus McCubbine
This is the will that Fergus McCubbin referred to when he had the testament dative of  John McCubbin of Bellhomie, now in the county of Antrim, Ireland, confirmed in Edinburgh Commissary Court and which the Commissary Clerk of Glasgow refused to give up. It was made on the 2 August 1690 at Dounemoy in Ireland.
John McCubbine left his eldest daughter, Anna, by his present wife, his lands of Ballehomie in the parish of Colmonell.  He also left her 6,000 merks to be paid to her out of debts he was owed in Scotland.
He also left 6,000 merks to his youngest daughter, Kathrine.
If Anna died without leaving issue, then Ballehomie was to go to David McCubbine, second son of Fergus McCubbine and the 6,000 merks to her sister Kathrine.
If both Anna and Catherine died without heirs, then the money was to go to John McCubbine’s nearest heir.
He appointed Fergus McCubbine of Knockdolian as his executor and factor and named Mr Mathew Baird, minister of Monkton, James Fergusone of Craig and Gilbert Kennedy of Clakantone, as overseers.  Anna was to get the consent of Fergus McCubbine and Mr Mathew Baird, before she married.

Anna McCubbin
Her father had had three daughters by his first marriage and two, Anna and Catherine by his second marriage.  The daughters of the first marriage had been given 3,000 merks as dowries. In his testament, her father had provided Ballhomie plus 6,000 merks for her and 6,000 merks to her sister, Catherine.  Fergus McCubbin of Knockdolian was their tutor.  When John McCubbin of Ballhomie died, the daughters of his first marriage pursued Fergus for an equal share of their father’s means and estate.  Fergus then gave each of them £1,000 Scots and required discharges from them in terms of their marriage contacts.  It turned out that only two of the daughters had marriage contracts.  Fergus had actually been infeft in Balhamie and all that there exists is a Disposition by him of the property to John McCubbin.  It is also pretended that there were goods belonging to the deceased John McCubbin in excess of the 1,200 merks mentioned in his testament, but Fergus should only be accountable for that sum.  Anna McCubbin, before her marriage to Charles Logan, gave up her right to Ballhomie to Fergus.  His obligation to pay her 4,000 merks in terms of her marriage contract is then referred to.
