A Court martial to sit immediately for Trial of John Colins, corporal, and Richard Dun.1


1There was a John Collins at this time in Capt. David Bell’s company. Bell’s company size roll of 13 July 1756 indicates that Collins was formerly an English sailor, 26 years old, who had enlisted at Yorktown in February 1756. Collins was again ordered before a court-martial on 10 May 1756. A Richard Dunn was listed in Robert Spotswood’s company in July 1756, but the roll indicates that he did not enlist until 9 May 1756.
