74th Regiment of Foot (Mil.)
  • Notes: The 74th (Highland) Regiment of Foot is not the same as the later Regiment The Argyll (or Argyle) and Sutherland Highlanders. In December 1777, John Campbell of Barbreck was authorised by the king to raise a Highland regiment within four months. Campbell was to have a colonelcy and the right to nominate officers. He was a veteran of the old 78th, or Fraser Highlanders, of 1756-63. The regiment was officially disbanded on 24 May 1784 in Scotland (Stirling it is thought). The foregoing from http://personal.nbnet.nb.ca/halew/74Regt.htm, Dec, 2004 EBW. History indicates that the 74th used the Government tartan (Black Watch) and it is not known why this entry allocates the Forbes to them.
