A Google Books search determined that the book "Manuscript Sources for the History of the West Indies" by Kenneth E N Ingram contained a reference to some McLea letters in possession of the National Register of Archives (Scotland). |
From p. 418 (reference 2083) of that book, it says:
"Mrs. A.W. Swainston, London.
2083 -- *McLEA PAPERS. Letters from Duncan McLea to his uncle in Rothesay from Grenada, describing yellow yever rampant among troops setting off to take Martinique and St. Lucia; 1793.
NRA (Scot.) 0876."
Because I believe that my family came from Rothesay, I was wondering if anyone has looked at these letters. Anyone who has access to the NRA who would be willing to copy them for me, I would be much obliged. I don't know that they would have any genealogically related material in them or not, but I would happily reimburse all costs for anyone who can share the contents! Or at least let me know that there's nothing of interest in them, if not!
