War Office 12, generated by the Commissary General of Musters Office, comprises the Household troops, the cavalry, Guards and regular infantry regiments of the line; as well as, special regiments or corps, colonial troops and various foreign legions and troops.
The seven musters of the 105th (King's Irish) have not been filmed in strict chronological order. Items appear in the same order as they do in the electronic finding aid linked below. The pay periods range from the fall of 1782 until January 31, 1784. The earliest muster roll includes the date it was signed, 1 Oct.1782, but not the range of the pay period. This muster and the next muster signed Jan. 26, 1783 have the notation "coming from America" next to most of the officers' names and Killough as the location signed. Thereafter the companies are in northern Ireland, either at Killough or Belfast; the last muster, covering 31 days of January 1784, is signed at Down Patrick. The Captains on the earliest muster in 1782 include: John Wilson, Henry Munro, William Blacker, James King, John McMahon, Charles Vallancy, and Charles McDonnell.
The officers listed on the earliest muster, aside from Forbes, include: Lieutenant Colonel Coote Manningham, Major William Cockill, Captains J G Gray, George Evans, Richard Gordon Forbes, Joseph Dover, John Whitwell and George Bruce.
