Roll of the Duke of Atholl's Fencible Men (1706)

The Roll of the Duke of Atholl's Fencible Men (1705 and 1706) is listed in volume 2 of the 'Chronicles of the Families of Atholl and Tullibardine'. The fencible men were those men of the parish, aged between sixteen and sixty, who were capable of bearing arms.

The list below provides details of the fencible men in Bohally and Strathtummel, but does not mention the names of their dwellings, or their relationship to each other (e.g. father and son). However, it is known that the Calmanach (i.e. Dow) families farmed the western end of Strathtummel, so the list appears to record the families from west to east, finishing with the Douglas families at Croftdouglas. Interestingly, all of the Calmanachs are listed in Strathtummel with the exception of Patrick Calmanach, tenant in Tarvie, Glen Briarachan.
