    Notes 
    • When the Covenanters were persecuted with the most fiendish cruelty. Dunlop was on the persecuted side, and was active in the movements against the State enactments, and to escape from the dangers to which he was exposed he joined a party which was formed to cross the Atlantic, and he settled in South Carolina,accompanied by his wife Sarah. There he resided, preaching and teaching until 1690. He was highly esteemed, and doubtless had he remained in America would have attained an influential position in the ministry, but he looked upon himself simply as an exile, his heart yearned for home, and less than two years after the Revolution brought peace to Scotland he was again in his native land.He was at once appointed by King William Principal of Glasgow University, and held that position until his death.
