Bridport Muster roll

Postby Clarenceboy » Tue Jan 15, 2008 4:52 pm

Does anyone know of a publication that contains the information from the Bridport muster? Everyone refers to it as a source but I can't seem to find an actual book or anything with the text in it. Ideally i'm looking for a translated version rather than a reproduction of the origional illegiable middle english. If anyone knows of something that fits the bill could you let me know.

Cheers

Hi Jack,

I'm up your way the weekend after next. Can exchange a copy for a pint! :wink:

(BTW, it's not a muster roll...)

There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

Colin, the word 'muster' has been attributed to it, erroneously. Apparently there is no evidence to suggest that it was a list of people turning up for deployment for war.

I am sure Dave will chip in more info, there is an expansion on this somewhere in this section, but can't find it.

Rather a list of people and their kit, moreover possibly the houseowner or head of household, hence the presence of women and people with next to no kit.

I will give Dave a nudge to this thread as is one of his pets.

I thought it was like I census in which people were asked to show how ell tooled up they were rather than what they did for a job, if they were planning to adopt The Force as their religion and so on.

Could be wrong though. :?

I see what you mean, the muster is 'come on, we off', while this is more an audit 'are you redy, then proove it...'.

I thought that we were going to be told that it was all a fake or something! :oops:
