Text sourceFrederik Halliburton was a sergeant in a liferegiment company which in 1689 was sent to England to fight the Jacobites in Ireland, but the ship Samson was captured by the French pirate Jean Bart and thus he became a French prisoner of war in December 1689. He was mistreated when he refused to enter the French 'Danish' regiment and he was only exchanged in June 1691 in Rotterdam. He was in the queen's battalion in English pay in Flanders in 1696, and became ensign in 1697. The battalion returned to Denmark and he served as sublieutenant 1701-4.
