Kincardineshire and the Rebellion of 1745-46....

 

On 7 May 1746 a general letter was transmitted to the various supervisors in Scotland asking them to make out a list of those who had in any way aided or abetted the Stewart Rebellion. The resulting names of those belonging to Kincardineshire are shown below. I think you will find it of great interest.
