AYRSHIRE RIFLE VOLUNTEERS - MAYBOLE COMPANY MUSTER ROLL This volunteer militia unit was formed in Maybole in1860 in response to rumours of an invasion by the "Froggies" across the English Channel. This remarkable set of documents was recently brought to light by Andy Connelly, a local plumber. He does not recall how these unique records came into his possession but has generously contributed them for display here. The muster roll of six double pages contains approximately 160 male names with year of birth, occupation, address and other notes.
