    John Ker (1673 – 1726) was a Scottish spy during the Jacobite risings. John Ker (8 August 1673 – 8 July 1726) was a Scottish spy during the Jacobite risings. Although in his own opinion Ker materially assisted in placing George I on the English throne, his services were unrewarded, owing, he would have us believe, to the incorruptibility of his character.
