    73rd Regiment of Foot c1810

    I am searching for information about our Scotsman, Lt. David Rose, who landed at Sydney Cove, NSW Australia January 1810 and then was relocated to Port Dalrymple, Tasmania Australia in April of the same year. He was born c1756 in Inverness. I am keen to find out exactly where he was born, etc.

    Re: 73rd Regiment of Foot c1810

    Hi
    Just checked the two books on Officer of the Black Watch and neither have any info on Lt David Rose of the 73rd .

    The 73rd was the Perthshire Regiment and I would have thought an inverness born man would have joined his local regiment back then like the 79th Foot ( Cameron Highlanders ) or maybe the 78th which became the Seaforth Highlanders .

    If you know he was in the 73rd you will be right but families in Scotland join THEIR LOCAL FAMILY REGIMENT and not just any regiment . This is the reason for the disquiet in Scotland with the English Government in London merging our Scottish Regiments which have been family regiments over 200+ years ....

    What info do you have at present on this Lieutenant Rose of the 73rd ?? You should contact a large library to see if they have the Army Lists for 1810 and his commission into the British Army . The Army lists will show his service or further promotions over the years as would the London Gazettes too .

    The National Archives at Kew in London would have his Army Service papers if they survive .

    Just some ideas at present for you

    Re: 73rd Regiment of Foot c1810

    Patrick: Thanks alot for your clues: I previously had "timelined" most of the information that was posted by Al Saunders and as Chalky noted there are at least 3 David Rose born in the Croy Dalcross area about the time of our great, great grandfather's birth.
    I do have his photo: article in the Australian Dictionary of Biography Online: photocopy of his intended resignation to Lt. Colonial O'Connell, Commanding 1st Battalion 73rd Reg with Lachlan Macquarie's signature noting "true copy" on 7/01/1813: Also, more info about his life on the 800 acres at "Corra Linn" property (sth east of Launceston, Tasmania) that Macquarie granted to David for his service.

    Chalky: Thanks for your response. That is why I haven't yet pinpointed our great great grandfather's parents & place of birth, etc because of the 3 David Rose births around the same time in that area. I'm not sure yet but there could be a slim connection with the Roses at Kilravock Castle in Croy, Inverness.

    Al, yes, your data is about our great great grandfather. Thanks for your quick response. I have done a timeline about our David Rose with many of these pieces of information. My ongoing task is to find out more about his earlier life and his involvement in the 73rd Regiment of Foot

    Yoey,

    Do you know about the HIGHLAND FAMILY HISTORY SOCIETY that is based at INVERNESS ? You may be a member of this society ?

    I heard in the news recently that there was a new HIGHLAND ARCHIVES CENTRE in Inverness . (Also a new Archives Centre at Fort William for the Lochaber area ).

    You mention the Rose of Kilravock and in the Officers of the Black Watch two are listed:

    ROSE (OF KILRAVOCK ) Hugh , CMG, Lieut 6 Feb 1884 , capt 1890, Major 1901, Lt Col & Commanding 1st Bn 1910 , retired 1914, Camp commandant III corps 1914-1918 died Kilravock 22 Feb 1946

    ROSE H , YOUNGER OF KILRAVOCK, (EC) 2ND Lt 14 march 1942, kia 1st Bn BW at Alamein 25 Oct 1942 see "the black watch andn the Kings enemies ".....
