Cromarty Courthouse Museum

Militia List for the parish of Cromarty, 1814:
all males in the parish aged between the ages of 17 and 45.

Militia lists were compiled in each parish in the early nineteenth century. Every male aged between 17 and 45 was included - and a fixed number were then balloted for service in the local militia. The lists are a useful source for family history because they are comprehensive, although, of course, they include only men. They are also useful sources for social history because they include the person's trade.

Exemptions were given to those who were unfit, had three or more children or were liable for naval service - but even those who were exempt appear on the list.

This list from 1814 is a sample. Other lists are held on data base by Cromarty Courthouse Museum for the parishes of Cromarty and Resolis for 1814, 1825, 1826 and 1831. Originals are in the Scottish Record Office.
