    • Sir John Menteith is alleged to be the betrayer of Sir William Wallace. Sir John discovered the retreat of Wallace through information from Jack Short, his servant. He went under cover of night and seized him in bed. He was sent to King Edward and was apparently hanged, drawn, and quartered in London.
