This Jacobites site gives sources of information in relation
to the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion. It is not intended to convey any opinion as to
the political history of the '45 Rebellion, there are plenty of sites already dealing with that
aspect of Jacobite history. The object is to show, through actual documents, text and pictures
what the leading Jacobites of the 1745 Rebellion were really like. The
descriptions of the principal characters including Bonnie Prince Charlie, lists of prisoners
captured after the battle of Culloden, summaries of evidence from witnesses at the trials of
leading Jacobites and named Hanoverian spies make interesting reading. Trial witnesses are
named and this, together with the list of prisoners makes a valuable source for anyone
researching their Scottish genealogy roots.
