  • Notes 
    • George Traill, appointed to an Ensigncy in the 67th Regiment, and afterwards transferred with the rank of Lieutenant to the Royal Canadian Rifles. When the latter regiment was disbanded in 1869, he was placed on halfpay with the rank of Captain. He married Mary, third daughter of George Smyth, Belfast, and on the 8th of September, 1870, sailed along with her, their recently born child, and his widowed sister, Jessie Glen Rae Munro, who three years before lost her husband, Alexander William Mackenzie, son of Lieutenant-Colonel Alexander William Webster Mackenzie, of the Lochend family, on their way to Britain, but they never reached their destination. They embarked at Montreal for Liverpool in the iron ship "W. H. Hazelden." She was spoken to on the 18th of September by an eastward bound vessel in latitude 47 N., and longitude 47 W., but has never since been heard of.
