Jervis MULLEN / MULLIN 100 regiment of foot


Just a taste of the vast quantity of research and data on the BYTOWN OR BUST SITE.

The information provided here is directly from the genealogy book, Who's Which by 
Reby (Johnston) Dobbs.  It is her words that are typed here. 
Early in the Spring, 1812 , His Majesty's 100 Regt. of Foot embarked for Canada.  
There were tears in the eyes of many as the troops marched on board - they were l
eaving the land of their birth, perhaps to return no more.  There were no tears 
in the eyes of Private Jervis Mullin, late of Arboe, County Antrim.  Unknown to 
all but two or three conspirators - well disguised in a private's uniform, marched 
Private Mullin's sixteen-year-old-wife!




Mention of CHAMBLY.
