Description

This volume contains the muster of the various regiments and smaller organizations of troops from the province of New York that served during the Seven Years’ War in America–the war that eliminated France once and for all as a power in the New World. The muster rolls cover the entire period of that war, from 1755 to 1763, except for the records from 1757, which are lost. Genealogists will find a mine of information here, including the numbers and designations of the companies, the names of the privates and officers, and personal information such as height, age, complexion, place of birth, trade, localities where enlisted, and dates of enlistment. Also of special interest to both genealogists and those interested in the colonial history of New York is the Appendix, which includes a list of all acts of the legislature under which the various regiments and troops were raised, equipped, paid, and subsisted, as well as the official orders of New York governors relative to the war; lists of commissioned officers, deserters, and deceased soldiers; a book of military appointments and other military information from 1759, 1760, and 1761; and a list of warrants issued to captains for bounty and enlistment monies.
