Title: 91st (98th) Argyll Highland Regiment

I have been looking for Napoleonic War era records from the British Military that might verify that Dr. David Livingstone's Uncles John, Charles, Duncan and Donald served in the military during the Napoleonic Wars. Apart from the Chelsea Pensioner records which list some Livingstones who may have served during the Napoleonic Wars there is a 1794 list of the 91st Argyll Highlanders that was formed in 1791 with Lt. Colonel Duncan Campbell of Lochnell as Commander. Among the list of enlisted men there were two privates Duncan and John Livingston. While a significant number of the enlisted men were from Argyll County it is also noted that some were recruited from Glasgow so it is possible that these could have Livingstons either from Argyll or Dr. Livingstone's kin living in the Blantyre/Glasgow area. He did have an Uncle John and Duncan Livingstone. It would be in any event worth tracking down any information the British Archives would have on these two Livingstons that served in the 98th which was later renamed in 1798 the 91st Argyll Highlanders. They saw action in Portugal in 1808 and Spain in 1812 during the Napoleonic War. Dr. Livingstone's Uncle Charles was said to have died during the war, but there could military papers for the others.

Donald
