Dornoch Men 1803 list

Photograph taken in Dornoch

Dornoch Volunteer Company Capt. A Sutherland May 1803.

Major Campbell and the Deputy Lieutenant of Sutherland-Dunrobin Castle, Dornoch.

Duplicate list of Men living in Dornoch and its vicinity who are desirous to form themselves into a Volunteer Company under Lord Hobart's Proposed new Volunteer Est., to be under the command of Lt. A. Sutherland and in the case of danger or Invasion to extend their services throughout their District. Transcribed from the Sutherland Papers (313/3274) by Elizabeth Bell to whom I offer a huge thank you.

I have put this list into alphabetical order to make it easy to search. 
As always all Mc and Mac names shown here as Mac.
Those persons shown without a place name are deemed to have lived in the Burgh of Dornoch. Where the same name appears more than once they are different men.
