Personal Info
Although only seventeen, he joined Prince Charles with his father, and served at Culloden, 16 April 1746. After that defeat he fled to the Isle of Arran, and there remained in hiding for twelve months, occupying his time by the study of medicine; escaping thence to the Continent, he married a French lady, whose name is not known.9
Charles Boyd returned to Scotland about 1766 or 1767, and resided at Slains Castle in Aberdeenshire, with his brother. In 1773 Dr. Johnson and his friend Boswell, when on their tour to the Hebrides, spent some time with him and his brother, the Earl of Erroll, there.10
