BRITISH MILITARY UNITS IN NORTH AMERICA - INFANTRY PART A

Introduction

There are several caveats required in understanding this data below.[1] Primarily my purpose is to show my family the breadth of English (and then later British) support required to nourish the colonies in North America. Since our family has a wide European heritage I have broadened that scope to include all European involvement. Since British North America (BNA) is limited by time to colonial assumption of sovereignty, there are temporal limits to this data. British military support in BNA continued after my primary focus, so I have updated records to the modern era.

Having been overwhelmed by the data bulk, I have eliminated those units which did not deploy into the area. Since I have used secondary sources the results are not likely to be entirely accurate, but ought to suffice for my purposes. I recommend government and regimental sources for more accurate unit histories. The web site at regiments.org is a remarkable collection of a much wider and more comprehensive unit histories collection with links to individual regimental histories.

British Military Units in North America

Unit Name

Service

Infantry

Consisted of three parts as Empire was established and spread: a professional army (English then British Establishments) evolved during the English Civil War; domestic militia and territorial units (Irish, American/Provincial, HEICS - Honourable East India Company Service); and hired foreign units. Most units impacting on BNA and family have been selected here. Pre and post-American Revolution colonial units are shown elsewhere.

Selected Temporary Infantry British Units
Created within the BNA from existing line regts under command, or in England prior to deployment. The donor units were left under-strength until the tactical purpose was achieved, or the tactical plan changed.

Selected British Infantry Establishment Units
Intended permanent regiments by the monarch and aristocracy and often named after colonels resulting in continual change and confusion. Scots, Irish, and Continental regiments had to be formally accepted by the English, later British, army Establishment to confirm reliability, pedigree and training details. Additional American and Provincial regiments are found elsewhere. In 1751, a seniority system was imposed, but the regimental numbers still changed as units were disbanded for various reasons and succeeding units shifted upwards in seniority. An 1881 naming system introduced amalgamation of units to continue their traditions.

2            The Regiment denied it was second and refused to accept designation as 2nd Foot Guards.

3            Dunbar was reported to have panicked, abandoned equipment, and fled after the Monongahela battle.

4            Webb, promoted to Major General in 1756 and acting CinC for New York, abandoned Fort Oswego burned the supporting Fort Bull, and felled trees to obstruct the supply route up Wood Creek. In 1757, Webb failed to take control at Albany and left Lake George and Fort William Henry to General Moncolm. He was, admittedly held off by a French flanking guard, but history has condemned him for cowardess and inaction.
