Borthwike, Sir John
Borthwike, Sir John, a martyr of the Reformation period, was a knight in Scotland, who was well learned and answered knowingly all articles brought against him, which were many. He professed Christ, and taught the Scriptures in his family and to all who would come and hear him; for this he was apprehended and tried. The examination was a long and tedious one, but ended in the burning of this godly man in 1558. See Fox., Acts and Monuments, 5, 607.
