Notes  He succeeded in 1716, probably not yet 21, although his birth date has been traditionally given as 1695. However his parents were probably married 1696. Clunes thought he was born ca 1700 (Stewart p. 307).

His history is well recorded elsewhere, particularly his pivotal part in the '45.

In Sep 1746 he went to France in exile, living with his family at Fontainebleau.

His death "at Paris" was reported in London Evening Post 22 Oct 1748 "a few days ago".

Bergues is just south of the Belgian border, near Dunkirk.
