I am trying to find the father of my great/great/great grandfather Major George King of the 7th Fusiliers (london Regiment)who was killed in the Battle of new Orleans on the 8th of January 1815. He was married in Dublin to Harriet Giffard in 1800. His father was a medical man in Edinburgh Scotland and this person or his father changed there surname from Drummond to King. I presume they changed their name after the Battle of Culloden Moor (18th April 1746) to avoid persecution by the English as the Drummonds were on the losing side.
