I'm trying to find out when and where my ancestor enlisted in the Black Watch.
He was born circa 1743, although I don't have a date or place of birth. According to one of his sons death certificate, Angus was a Sergeant in the 42nd Regiment.
He was married to Helen Thomson in 1788 and died in 1823 in Aberlour, Banffshire aged 80 but unsure if his age was true.
He was aka Aeneas and this makes me think he wasn't born in Banffshire but possibly Western Isles or Skye.
