93rd highlanders circa 1810 McIntosh
« on: Tuesday 02 September 14 02:51 BST (UK) »
I have a great grandfather born in 1810, Cape of Good Hope, South Africa: David McIntosh who emigrated to Canada. In the Canadian records it says he was born where his father was stationed with the 93rd Highlanders.  Can any one assist with records that might assist with finding his parents?  Would his father be high ranking? Any help appreciated. Thanks

Was his father Donald?  I have a Statement of Service for a Donald Macintosh who may be a relative of my 3 x Great Grandfather, John McIntosh also in the 93rd. He lost a leg at the Battle of New Orleans. The Donald I have was injured in 1815 before New Orleans.  If you Google "Concise History of the 93rd Sutherland Highland Regiment" you will get dates etc.  Any use?

I have a Donald MacIntosh Born about 1766 Sutherland and died about 1850 Dornoch, Sutherland.
He was in the 93rd and was wounded in the West Indies. His son Donald was born in Dornoch 1821 and came to Canada Approximately 1834 with many of his family. Maybe there is a connection?
