Lochbroom in the '45

Coigach and the other parts of Lochbroom had a pivotal role in the 1745 Rebellion; people came out on both sides of the struggle, and the geography played host to both Rebels and supporters of the Government. In the dieing days of the war leaders of the Government forces fled from Sutherland through Lochbroom, staying with the Rev. James Robertson. Following collapse of the Rebellion the fugitive Prince considered hiding "among the MacKenzies of Seaforth's country" at Lochbroom. French privateers then made repeated voyages to the loch attempting to rescue Charlie, playing cat and mouse with British Navy ships among the Summer Isles. It took many decades for the farms and forests of Coigach to recover from the destructive retribution of the British Marines.

Names and descriptions of people known to have been "out" in the '45 Rebellion come mostly from a list compiled from reports sent from the Supervisors of Excise to the Commissioners of Excise, and from government lists of prisoners compiled and preserved in State Papers.

Several books have been written by people who have ably studied and excerpted from those sources. Besides those works many other books, genealogies, and contemporary newspaper accounts note others involved. This file attempts to name all the players affecting Lochbroom, including Rebel, Government, and sitting on the fence. Included as relavent though not from Lochbroom themselves are the other members of Cromarty's Regiment from other parts of Ross & Cromarty, and Jacobites from Sutherland and Caithness who likely were swept up with the Regiment when it travelled north. Also included are spouses and parents of Rebels who tried to keep a foot in the government camp, and the famous "Strong Minister" of Lochbroom, James Robertson, who fought to keep his parishoners out of the Rebellion, then travelled to London to plead for mercy at their trials. Further included are soldiers who fought for the government, the sailors who chased French ships around the Summer Isles, and the marines who ravaged the countryside in retribution. For sake of completion several non Scots are included, such as officers in the Spanish service captured with the Regiment, and French privateers and cadets trying to rescue Bonny Prince Charlie.

LOCHBROOM JACOBITES, and OTHERS


PRISONERS

The defining battle of the Rebellion was held 16 April, 1746 at Culloden, near Inverness. Some of the following people were captured there. However, most Rebels from Lochbroom were in the Earl of Cromarty's Regiment, which missed the battle. They had earlier been tasked with occupying Sutherland and Caithness, attempting to recover French gold landed there, and to gather both recruits and "cess" (tax moneys). Unwelcome strangers, the Sutherlands and MacKays of the countys resisted the Rebels, and while the Regiment was rushing south from Dunrobin Castle the local militia ambushed them the day before Culloden. The Prisoner lists are heavy with people captured then, from the Earl and his son, to humble cattle herds. Many escaped from the disaster at Dunrobin, or were elsewhere at the time. The Excise list helps identify some of those, various histories name others, but most others remain not noted.

Further to the cold lists, some contemporary correspondance survives, 17 March, 1747 William Jack, a prisoner at Tilbury Fort doomed to be Transported a few weeks later on the 31st to Barbadoes, remarks on his time aboard the rotting ship hulks used as floating prisons (see Lyon, Volume 3, page 65 for full transcription, spelling in this excerpt is modernized);

I was eight months and eight days on sea, of which time I was eight weeks upon half pound and twelve ounces oatmeal and a bottle of water in the twenty four hours, which we was obliged to make meall water in the bottom of an old bottle. There was one hundred and twenty five put on board at Inverness on the James and Mary of Fyfe. In the latter end of June we was put board of a transport four hundred and fifty tons called the Liberty and Property which we continued the rest of the eight months upon twelve ounces of oat shilling as it came from the milln.

There was thirty two prisoners more put a board of the said Liberty and Property, which makes on hundred and fifty seven, and when we came ashore we was but forty nine in life; which would been no great surprise if there had not been on, conform to our usages.

They would take us from the hold in a rope and hysed [tied] us to the yardarm and let us fall in the sea in order for ducking of us, and tieing us to the mast and whipping us if we but made water in the hold. This was done to us when we was not able to stand. I will leave it to the readers to judge what condition they might been in themselves with the above treatment. We had neither bed nor bed clothes nor clothes to keep us warm in the daytime. The ships ballast was black earth and small stones, which we was obliged dig holes to lie in to for to keep us warm till the first day of November that every man got about three yards of gross harn filled with straw, but no bed clothes. I will not trouble you any more till I see you.

Background on the sad prison history of many of the captured Jacobites at Tilbury Fort is well presented in a file at http://www.thurrock.gov.uk/heritage/content.php?page=factfiles_details&id=5

In the modern era such cruel treatment of prisoners leading two thirds to death in custody would be a war crime. Then it was part of a pattern of abuse that included orders to kill all wounded captured Jacobites on the battlefield of Culloden (last mainland battle of the Rebellion).

Those noted as "Prisoners" below were mostly from "Cromarty's Regiment", with a few recruited by Coll MacDonnell of Barisdale, who though part of the Glengarry MacDonald family had tack of some lands in Assynt, and raised his own Regiment, including a recruiting drive through Lochbroom and Coigach (sometimes Barrisdale was referred to as "Lieut-Colonel" of Glengarry's Regiment, others as Colonel of his own, which is probably a closer description of the situation, as even if under Glengarry, his command was of his own people, fiercely loyal "Highland Banditti"). The lists of prisoners are mostly from two books. The "References" at the end of the file includes more fuller descriptions of the sources noted in them, and links where found to the increasing number of them that have been digitized online, primarly through http://www.archive.org and http://books.google.com

In most cases I have been able to trace the prisoners back through the sources noted in the books to copies of the original documents and in some cases found other confirming sources, but the two books remain extraodinary works of scholarship that will remain primary resources for generations to come, and so should be credited here at the start of this file;

TITLE: Muster Roll of Prince Charles Edward Stuart's Army, 1745-46
AUTHOR & EDITOR: Christian Aikman
OTHER EDITORS: Alastair Livingstone and Betty Stuart-Hart
PUBLISHER: Aberdeen University Press, 1984
ISBN: 0080303854

The more recent edition of that book (I have not yet looked at), title enlarged, is;

TITLE: No Quarter Given: The Muster Roll of Prince Charles Edward Stuart's Army, 1745-46
AUTHOR & EDITOR: Christian Aikman
OTHER EDITORS: Alastair Livingstone and Betty Stuart-Hart
PUBLISHER: Neil Wilson Publishing; Revised Edition, 31 May 2001
ISBN: 1903238021

The second major source is;

TITLE: The Prisoners of the '45 Volumes. I, II, III
EDITORS: Noted as "Edited from the state papers by Sir Bruce G. Seton and Jean G. Arnot".
PUBLISHER: Scottish Historical Society Edinburgh, 1928 and 1929

The original prisoner records were handwritten by people whose language, English, was not that of most of the listees, Gaelic, also those record takers were not familiar with placenames in the Highlands, modern "Fodderty" became then "Fottertie", the blacksmith Alexander MacLennan is noted as from "Agherahard" or "Achnahaird" (that second spelling matching the modern version). Surnames in one source were noted in form as "M'Leod", in the other as "McLeod", most would have been illiterate with no preferred spelling, the modern accepted method is "MacLeod", so that is the form I use for this file.

Some of the Prisoners below also have background in the list of persons concerned in the Rebellion gathered by the Commissioners of Excise. Some of that info was used by the compilers of the above noted two books, with referral to footnotes "P.C." and "R.P.C.".

"Muster Roll" starts with officers, then privates, "Prisoners of the '45" is straight alphabetical, for this file I have chosen that first method for ordering the listees.

Key to the sources is included at the bottom of the file.

In addition, a few names have become known from other than those two major sources. I include description and where known links to those sources.

OTHER LOCHBROOM JACOBITES

The prisoner lists are the largest source to identify Jacobites from Lochbroom, but by definition they exclude those of Cromarty's Regiment who died in battle, those who escaped capture, and those identified as supporting the Rebellion but not in the Regiment themselves. The following is an attempt to name them.

HANOVERIANS

Most Lochbroom people were neutral in alegiance, however not all those committed were Jacobites. (note Rev James Robertson, Aulay MacAulay, reserve non Lochbroom Hanoverians for next category)


OTHERS

Many other Lochbroom people not clearly Jacobite or Hanoverian were caught up in the Rebellion, such as heritors with relatives in both camps, and the schoolteacher who testified at trials of rebels. Also here noted are people from beyond the Parish who passed through from all camps, from Capt. Fergusson of the British Marines punishing the Jacobite populance, to the French cadets and Privateers attempting to rescue Bonny Prince Charlie.

Cumberland Papers
1745-1765
:
The Cumberland Papers are described at http://www.microform.co.uk/guides/ReligionPolitics.pdf as;

The papers of William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland, third son of King George II which are preserved in the Royal Archives, are concerned mainly with his military career. His campaigns in the Low Countries, Scotland and Germany, and the war in North America of which, as Captain General of the Forces until 1757, he was in supreme control. There are also a few papers of much earlier date. They deal with such subjects as the establishment of forces at Minorca and Gibraltar in 1721, and General Wade's activities in Scotland, 1724-6. Papers captured from the Scots, during and after the Duke's campaign, include a journal of Prince Charles Edward's movements before, at and after Culloden, which forms a valuable supplement to the Stuart Papers.

References from sources not noted in "Muster Roll" or "Prisoners of the '45":

History: History of the Mackenzies by Alexander Mackenzie was published 1894 collecting articles he had previously written for the Celtic Magazine he was Editor of. He attempted with the book to trace the descent of all the various branches of the MacKenzie family. Project Gutenberg has digitized the book, see http://www.gutenberg.org/dirs/etext03/mcknz10.txt
 
Findon: The "Findon Tables" are a series of thirteen large genealogy charts published in 1879 by Major James Dixon MacKenzie of Findon. He credited a large part of the research to his brother Lewis Mark Mackenzie who died before completing the charts. They attempted to show all the lines of descent in the Mackenzie family from earliest time till their day. The Mormons have microfilmed the charts, see FHL 277813, however for filming they broke each chart into many different frames, making it difficult to browse and study. More recently, Clan MacKenzie U.K. has reproduced them full size, and makes them available at a fair price, see their page describing the charts and giving ordering information at; http://www.clan-mackenzie.org.uk/shop/findon.html
