  • ID: I1
  • Name: Robert Doig
  • Surname: Doig
  • Given Name: Robert
  • _AKA: Doeg
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: ABT 1753 in Of Forfar, Angus, Scotland
  • _UID: C08E43823B13B446BE0910C4A49A4C6FEF71
  • Note:
    The marriage record lists Robert as a soldier in the the Atholl Highland Regiment and Ann the lawful daughter to James Halket, one time brewer in Forfar.

    The Atholl Highland Regiment was the 77th Regiment of Foot, a private army formed in 1777 at Blair Atholl, Perth, under the Duke of Atholl. It was to support the English in the Revelotuary War against Americans for independence. The regiment complained when they were later to be sent to the East Indies, and it was disbanded in 1783.

    The gap between daughter Ann in 1779 and Helen in 1784 suggests Robert was off fighting with the British in America. By 1784 Robert became a linen weaver in Forfar Burgh.
