Men listed as deserting from their Regiment

M

These men have been recorded as deserters from the Regiment in which they served. There is more than a strong possibility these men eventually settled. We have included them as they received a description etc. this list may be of help to their descendants. Today ,we understand why these men deserted, in many cases they were treated worse than the convicts. We have listed some in their Regiment , however in many cases the regiment did not directly record them. Most have been recorded with their Regiment
