FORBES, JAMES [SSNE 2238]
James Forbes was a Scottish officer in Swedish service. He was an ensign in John Meldrum's [SSNE 572] regiment from 1629-1630. This is perhaps James Forbes of Foulis, 2nd son of Robert Prior of Monymusk who apparently served as a captain in the Swedish army in 1635. He went on to serve as a lieutenant-colonel in the Covenanting army in 1649.
