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

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.
