BRITISH MILITARY UNITS IN NORTH AMERICA - INFANTRY PART B

Introduction

There are several caveats required in understanding this data below. 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.[1] 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 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            Documenting the 71st, with its regimental numbering changes, gets very complicated because of interest in both Fraser's and Mackenzie's regiments. There have been four different 71st regiments, but I have focused identities on the Revolutionary period. Fraser's regiment was raised as the 63rd Foot in 1757 and renumbered the 78th in 1758 and disbanded in 1763. Kenneth Mackenzie, I Earl of Seaforth raised two battalions during the Revolution and they were designated 78th and then later 72nd. John Mackenzie, Lord MacLeod raised two additional battalions designated the 73rd 1777-1786, re-designated the 71st During the period 1782-1784, those elements of Fraser's regiment not surrendered at Yorktown were reformed into yet another 71st regiment under Lord Fraser, the Earl of Balcarres. These numbering confusions continued until the Cardwell army reforms of 1881 when the numbering system was abandoned and the 71st became The Highland Light Infantry. Note that Fraser raised the regiment to fight for King George only eleven years after being defeated at Culloden!

3             In 1855 in the Crimea, the 72nd fought with Sir Colin Campbell at Sevastopol. In 1857 in India, the regiment led the assault on Kotah during the Indian Mutiny. Campbell was elevated to Field Marshall Baron Clyde. Lord Clyde married Sir William Johnson's graddaughter and his granddaughter married James Boulton.

4            The Earl of Seaforth, colonel of the later 78th Regiment, died en route to India. During the Indian Mutiny the 78th was present at the taking of Cawnpore and formed part of the force which relieved Lucknow on 23rd September 1857, remaining at the Residency until it was finally relieved on 17th November. No fewer than eight Victoria Crosses were awarded to members of the 78th for gallantry in the Mutiny campaign.
