Warwickshire Fencibles 1700 england
« on: Monday 02 August 21 05:33 BST (UK) »
Greetings, I have searched and searched and can't find records for people belonging to the  Warwickshire Fencibles in 1700. My relative WILLIAM MOSES had Headon Batr (Batalion?) Sergt in the Warwickshire Fencibles as his employment in 1798. I want to get more information on his time in the group. Your help and guidance is greatly appreciated. thank you

Hi William married 1798 and he was in the forcibles then.
This is what (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_British_fencible_regiments) have to say about the corps. So he was in already by 1798 and I would like to know the 1700 records. I think they were disbanded early 1800.

 Warwickshire Corps of Fencible Cavalry[75] or Warwickshire Regiment [12].[f]      Colonel George, Earl Warwick.[76] succeeded by Major-General George Churchill [77]Lieut-Col Francis Gregory of Styvechale Park (19 May 1794)Lieut-Col Charles Ed. Repington of Ilmington (17 Jan 1799)[78]   19 May 1794   April 1800   On 18 September 1797 they marched from Colchester to Sheffield to relieve a cavalry regiment sent to Scotland. Coventry, April 7 the last of the 6 troops marched in here and have been disbanded.[79]

If you look in the newspapers there are a few contemporary mentions and later on some small histories.
