English Officers of 1640

Extract of a list of Officers from a pay book circa 1639-1640.

The list does not mention the Regiments to whom the Officers were attached but it is a contemporary document from the field. All spellings are as per the document.

The pay appears to be irregular with the same officer receiving more a few days later and their names correspondingly appear more than once.

If you find this tedious to read, then imagine typing it !
