Warrant for Drogheda's Light Dragoons

A regiment of Light Dragoons was raised in Ireland in 1759 by the Marquis of Drogheda, and numbered 19th. It was changed to 18th in 1763 at the end of the Seven Years War. Two warrants were granted to this Regiment, December 2, 1762, 388 to the first squadron and 389 to the second. The first registered 41 members up to 1791. and was canceled in 1813. This was the regiment of John Caperton. The source of this is Irish Masonic History and the Jewels of Irish Freemasonry.

This regiment, 388, was enlisted to fight the Whiteboys who were a secret Irish agrarian organization in 18th century Ireland which used violent tactics to defend tenant farmer land rights for subsistence farming. They get there name from the white smocks the members wore in their nightly raids.

Oh Marcia! - just when I thought I had put my ancestors to rest for a while to concentrate on the living - you pop up with new evidence and there went my Sunday! ;) Yes - you open up more questions. One path I have been following, that looks very promising, kind of makes sense with the documents you posted. I'm just not sure how yet. Since John (or sometimes JNO) was a fairly common name - I followed the Hugh path. Hugh wasn't quite as common. There was a John Capidan who was baptized on 18-December - 1743 in Iverness, Scotland. His father is listed as "Hugh". (source: Scotland, Select Births and Baptisms, 1564-1950). I have no idea what this means, but now I'm about to purchase a few credits on the www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/people/_caperton_1513_1700 site to see what I can discover.

The text from the registry:
Hugh Capitan in Kilick have twins John and Anna - January 7, 1744.

I'm not clear (yet) if this is a birth registry of some kind or a baptism registry. It isn't sourced on the image - but as I read over the other names on the document (that I can't upload) - it looks more like a record of birth dates.
