William Stock - 1707 Marine "War of Spanish Succession"
Posted by: Joy Shanks (ID *****1364) Date: October 06, 2003 at 16:24:51

I am a historical document collector and dealer and recently purchased an authentic 1707 document from the War of Spanish Succession. My document is a muster roll for a British marine regiment under the command of Col. Joshua Churchill. The place listed is Alicant which is on the coast of Spain. Per my initial research, it appears that the men on the muster roll were participating in a seige of the castle at Alicant at the time it was written. One of the men on the roll is William Stock.

My goal is to discover as much as I can about the actual goings on at the time of the document and as much as I can about the men listed. I am asking for help with that project. If you can help me, I will immediately offer a complete transcription and pictures of the document and a copy of my compiled reserach when it is completed. Pleas e-mail me directly at
Thanks for any help,
