Reading Names 71st Regiment of Foot army muster 1806
« on: Monday 11 December 17 02:26 GMT (UK) »
Following is a list of names found in records from the National Achieve in Kew of the 71st Regiment of foot who participated in the British Invasion of 1806 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  I am having trouble reading the names of soldiers who “Remain in South America” and wonder if someone could help me.

No.   Surname           Name   Comment
13   Cormick            ?           Not sure of surname and can’t read name
32   Howard           Archibald   Surname ok but not sure name
34   Ink                   Samuel   Not sure surname, name ok
41   Ma………….ham?   Dough   Can’t read surname, name ok
48   Mc?                   John           Can’t read surname, name ok
52   McCo…….ken?   Daniel?   Can’t read surname and not sure name
64   Rooney           Daniel?   Surname Ok, not sure name
66   Rofs                   ??           Surname Ok, can’t read name

I have attached two copies of the records with this post.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thank you.
Bonner

Hi Aghadonwey and Conahy Calling,

Thank you for your prompt reply, truth is didn't think my post went through as I had so much trouble uploading the images. I can now see only one went through.  Will attached the second image with this post.

Noted both your input and believe you are correct so will note this down.

Thank you.

48   Mc?                   John           Can’t read surname, name ok
line 48 not in either image
52   McCo…….ken?   Daniel?   Can’t read surname and not sure name
first name Danl (Daniel)
64   Rooney           Daniel?   Surname Ok, not sure name
first name Danl (Daniel)
66   Rofs                   ??           Surname Ok, can’t read name
Although it looks like Rofs this is actually the old double s (first s looks like modern f) so surname is Ross first name is Jno (John)

Hi Aghadowey,

Sorry the delay, I am currently overseas in Asia and had trouble logging into the forum for a few days.

Once again thank you for your input will note these.

I have attached No. 48, it's very difficult to read as it is at the bottom of the page.

Thank you.

Siam01  :)
