19th century Whitchurch Volunteers

Infantry ManResearch has started at Shropshire Archives for the Whitchurch ‘All Our Stories’ project.

Members of the group are currently working through an 1803 enrollment register for the Loyal Whitchurch Corps of Volunteer Infantry.

In 1794 the British government feared that the French would invade and encouraged towns to form local defence regiments.

The enrollment register provides the project with much information about hundreds of Whitchurch men and their families in the first decade of the nineteenth century.
