Description: This volume contains complete transcriptions of the muster rolls of the various regiments and smaller troop units raised by the province of New York for service in the Seven Years' War, otherwise known as "The Old French War." The rolls are complete for the years 1755 to 1764, except for 1757 for which they have been lost. Rolls typically give the name, date of enlistment, age, birthplace and trade of the soldier, and the company to which he belonged. An extensive appendix presents a great deal of supplemental information from sources other than the muster rolls. Some of the materials in the appendix are: Acts of the Legislature regarding raising troops and the prosecution of the war; lists of commissioned officers; lists of deserters; and lists of deceased soldiers. There is a very helpful everyname index. This work was originally published in the collections of the New York Historical Society for 1891.
