Text source

James Galbraith was a quartermaster in Colonel Donald Mackay's [SSNE 93] regiment of Swedish service in 1630. Chancellor Axel Oxenstierna provided a recommendation for a "Captain" James Galbraith to Gustav Horn in September 1631. The captain was engaged in recruiting dragoons for Swedish service. He is possibly the same man as [SSNE 2305].
