Soldiers discharged from the British Army who had given their parish of birth as Urquhart, Inverness-shire.

 

(kindly submitted by Peter Grant – London U.K. 2002)

 

            extracted from the available on-line index of these documents (series WO97) which are held at the Public Record Office, Kew, London: www.pro.gov.uk

 

            on-line index covers soldiers discharged 1760-1854 appearing in WO97 (usually on medical grounds, or where regiment disbanded etc.   Records of soldiers who were discharged by purchase have not survived for this period.  Some discharge papers may have been misfiled, and are now in a single alphabetic sequence in WO 97/6355-6383. These are not included in the main index).

 

            search results only shown for index entries which record the particular spelling  “Urquhart” or (in one case only) “Glenurquhart”– variant spellings not searched.  No entries appeared under “Glenmoriston”

 

            not every Urquhart enlisted man who was discharged in this period is listed, eg others appear in the Regimental Registers of Admission to Pension (series WO120).

 

            additional information may be given in the original records.
