Text source

James Haddon was an officer in the Scots-Dutch Brigade. Very little information is available about him in Ferguson's The Scots Brigade and is only noted as being the lieutenant-colonel of Sir David Balfour's [SSNE 8033] regiment between 22 October-21 December 1629. He may have also simultaneously assumed the sergeant-majorship after the death of Archibald Bethune [SSNE 8036], or it may have passed to Mungo Hamilton [SSNE 8037], who Ferguson contends was made sergeant-major before Bois-le-Duc. He was dead by the second date and succeeded by Sir James Livingstone, Lord Almond [SSNE to follow] to the lieutenant-colonelcy. Mungo Hamilton was certainly sergeant-major of the regiment after Haddon's death.
