Introduction to the Wynne Papers
The Wynne papers, a small and mainly regimental archive, 1689-1767 and 1783, derive from an Irish family of that name related to the Wynnes of Hazelwood, Co. Sligo, and Lurganboy, Manorhamilton, Co. Leitrim. The family appears to have had many connections with the regiments which were formed from the Enniskillen contingents at the beginning of 1690. The papers relate mainly to military administration. There are (surprisingly) no references to actual fighting, except abroad.
