      Hi folks,
      I have recently been asked a number of questions about Highlanders who may
      have fought and been captured etc at Worcester. Does anyone know if there
      are Muster Rolls, either of Cromwell's army or the Royal army which I could
      consult. For myself, I am also keen to find out if any of my Lancastrian
      ancestors got caught up in this battle.
      Regards,

        Hello there

        Please note the attached, from a book called "Scotland and the Commonwealth"
        which describes the sacking of Dundee. Then compare the name of the Captain
        John Caddell with John Cad(d)ell Gentleman (the name was spelled Caddell in
        the family Bible dating back to 1686 in Barbados) who goes of to Barbados
        in the Brisotl Shipping lists in 1658. Are they one and the same. I have
        been trying very hard to find out, and have had no luck. Even travelled to
        Dundee and corresponded with the Historical Society there.

        Was he a prisoner for seven years? Did he travel south to Worcester or was
        he imprisoned with the others in England? Was he forcemarched from Scotland
        to Durham and then on to the south? I like all of you would like to know if
        there are records of these prisoners.

        Cheers

          Hi Andrew,
          I think that there can be no doubt that you have your man. A trivial
          spelling difference like the one you mention is of no consequence and the
          fact that you have the established West Indies connection would be enough
          for me.

            I am resending this in case you did not get it, as perhaps you might know
            what happened to John Caddell in the interim period. By the way, I have a
            fairly complete list of the Bristol shipping lists and there is a website
            that shows them in their entirety. My letter follows., Note the attachments.

            Andrew Caddell
            (originally from Montreal and living in Geneva as a diplomatic spouse since
            1995)


            Please note the attached, from a book called "Scotland and the Commonwealth"
            which describes the sacking of Dundee. Then compare the name of the Captain
            John Caddell with John Cad(d)ell Gentleman (the name was spelled Caddell in
            the family Bible, which dates back to 1686 in Barbados) who goes of to
            Barbados in the Bristol Shipping lists in 1658. Are they one and the same??
            I have been trying very hard to find out, and have had no luck. Even
            travelled to Dundee and corresponded with the Historical Society there.

            Was Captain Caddell a prisoner for seven years? Did he travel south to
            Worcester or was he imprisoned with the others in England? Was he
            forcemarched from Scotland to Durham and then on to the south? I - like all
            of you - would like to know if there are records of these prisoners.
