1797 Lochbroom Militia List


Some of the info in this file comes from partial transcription of a manuscript in the National Archives of Scotland in the Seaforth Muniments collection, GD46/6/38, to that base I am adding notes based on information from other sources, including correspondance from descendants of the people named, and also adding hypertext links to mentions of the people named in other files. Thank you to Samantha Smart of the Archives for transcribing the introductory heading fom the first page of the document and explaining the meaning of the headings at top of each Parish.
