Duncans on The Muster Roll of Prince Charles Edward Stuart's Jacobite Army 1745-46

 

This list is a work in progress and any other Duncans or Duncansons or alternate spellings found in future research will be added to the Muster Roll. Many Duncan families were pressed into service by their respective feudal superiors into the Jacobite Army as were many other families from around Scotland.

Like many prominent Highland families such as the Campbells, kinsmen fought on both sides and Duncans were no exception, with many other Duncans & prominent Territorial Duncan families such as the Duncan’s of Seaside & Lundie (Camperdown) and Duncan’s of Ardownie whom fought and sided with the Hanoverian Government. Muster Rolls of the various Government Regiments has not yet been undertaken.
