Chelsea Pensioners

The Royal Hospital Chelsea is a retirement and nursing home for veterans of the British Army and first opened its doors in 1692. Known the world over as Chelsea Pensioners, some of the initial soldiers admitted were injured at the Battle of Sedgemoor. 

Soldiers from the 78th Regiment first arrived at the facility in November of 1758 with injuries sustained at the Battle of Louisbourg in North America. Nearly 200 Fraser's Highlanders would be admitted through the spring of 1764.

Note: Please consult original record where indicated for further clarification.

Royal Chelsea Pensioners' Recruiting Map

In an effort to better understand potential recruiting locations for soldiers of Fraser's 78th Highlanders, we've compiled birth locales for all pensioners entering Royal Chelsea Hospital and placed each man accordingly on this map of Scotland. Of the over 200 men located the majority were born in/around Inverness [centre map]. Additionally, we've included the locations of four civilian recruiters known to have 'made their recruits.'
