-Braynes’ regiment were raised from the twelve foot regiments then in Scotland in 1655 for service in the garrison of Jamaica. They lost nearly half the regiment ​in a shipwreck off Ireland. The regiment included both Scottish and Irish contingents. Shipped to Jamaica in 1656 they suffered from sickness, with Colonel Brayne dying in September 1657.
