Dorset Pensioned Royalist Soldiers 1672

Transcribed and donated to the Dorset OPC Project by Kim Parker

This list of the 85 Royalist Soldiers (and 1 preacher) pensioned at the Restoration and still surviving in 1672 was amongst the Gould papers inherited by Dr. Wyndham Godden who made them available to Rev. Bartelot for publication in Somerset and Dorset Notes & Queries (Vol 19 P139-142, 1925). I have converted the sums into annual amounts to make them comparable with the 1662-4 lists.
