Chapter Summary

This appendix lists judicial commissions from 1661 to 1685. Whatever the justification, once the policy of using military force had been decided upon, it could be used in a number of ways. At the most fundamental level, it could serve to reinforce other initiatives. Judicial commissions often benefited from this kind of augmentation, and many of them included specific provisions for coercive machinery. The 1663 commission against the Camerons of Lochiel was accompanied by an order for the muster of all fencible men in the shires of Inverness, Ross, Nairn and Perth; Glenorchy was given the assistance of a troop of Linlithgow's foot during his commission against Dunbeath in 1669; and Argyll was in 1671 empowered to call upon the militias of Inverness, Dumbarton, Bute, Argyll and Perth in fulfilment of his commission against the MacDonalds, with provision for calling in the regular army should it prove necessary.

Keywords: Camerons of Lochiel; judicial commissions; policy of using military force
