Regiment in Clones 1792: HEYBURN

Post by Julie »

I'm looking for which Regiment may have been in Clones in 1792 - 1793. That's when my g/g/g/father John HEYBURN was born and I feel his father may have been stationed in Clones during that time.
Can someone help me knock a brick out of my wall, please?

Hello Julie, Although I do not know exactly which if any regiment was stationed specifically in CLONES or in any part of MONAGHAN at that period, you might find it interesting to read BRIAN Mc GINNS articles on Irish fighting Irish, where he states that at about that time 25% of IRISH men were signing up to BRITISH Regiments such as Royal CONNAUGHT RANGERS etc.
Google "IRISH FIGHTING IRISH " and best of luck. John

The Records of St. Tighernach's Church of Ireland Cathedral in Clones contains lots of data of the families living there in the late 1700's so it could be possible to trace some names quite easily. Because Clones was more important than Monaghan Town as a Railway Junction, as a Canal Centre, an important School Centre & because of the Cathedral, most of the County Records were centred on Clones.
