Discharged from the 78th Regiment in 1763, William Campbell (a.k.a., William the Scotsman, or Guillaume L'Ecossais) continued service with the 15th Foot, where he discharged at Montreal in 1767. He and his partner, Marie Josephte Chartier, remained in the area of La Prairie, Quebec, and continued to raise their family of seven children for many years.

This document analyzes the raising of the fourteenth company in the 78th Regiment of Foot (the final company) for service in the British Army in North America during the period from 1759-1763, with emphasis on potential residential locations in Scotland for William’s family at that time. It carefully examines, through a number of factors (family DNA results, and William’s potential proximity to regimental recruiting officers), if adequate evidence exists to support which area of the country his family was originally from, and if he most likely enlisted in the army in 1759 rather than 1757 with the main body of Colonel Fraser’s Battalion as previously assumed.

Newspaper accounts of over 1200 military soldiers who intentionally fled from their units across Great Britain from 1726-59. The details provided in these articles include name of the accused, aged, personal features, [in many cases] birthplace, and any additional attributes the issuing regimental agents thought necessary to include. The supplied accounts remain unchanged, as they appear in the original newspapers, and it is with the greatest of hope that the reader will find this era, the eighteenth century, to be among the most fascinating of times in British military history. Full name index included; PDF searchable.
