He was the Reprefentative of an" ancient and honourable Famiiyiwhich for fome Centuries has been a3 remarkable for its cenftant Attachment to the Caufe of Liberty and the Proteftant Succeffion, as for thb Men of fignal Worth and Bravery its has produced. In the bloody Wars, which the Great Gullavus Adol-phus undertook, in Defence of Religion and the Liberties of Germany, Robert Monro, Baron o'f Fowlis, ^wifli many of his Kindred and Relations, fo dittinguifhe'd ^ themfelves that they were raited trf great Prefermeni^f and, whic* vr* very r fome of whofe Pofterity are even at this Day inPoffeffion of confiderable Commands inthe Swedilh Army. * Nor has the Zeal of the Family fur the fame glorious Caufe been lefs confpicuous at Home than Abroad, efpi-cially fince the late happy Revolution, whichthey had a confiderable Hand in fettling firft, in the NorthernPart 6f* the Ifiand, as they have often detended it fince, ia I imei of the greateft Danger, at the Expence of their Bloqd and Fortunes. For, not to go^ftrtteer back, in* tire-Year 1715, when an unnatural Rebellion broke out in the North, the deceafed Sir Robert Monro, with his Clan, appeared in Arms in Defence of the Conftitution and the Proteftant Succeflion, and made a confiderable .Diverfion in Favour of the King's. Army, under the late Duke of Argyll, which at that Time was but very fmall. And in the Year 1719, when a Spanifti Invafion, fup-ported by an Infuredtipn in the Highlands, threatned the Kingdom with new Calamities, Capt. George Monro of Cuikairn, in his Brother^Sir. Rpbert^AJjfijace, put * himfelf at the Head of a con�2erat>le Number of the Clan, Who Iwn'd the King'js Troops under the Command of Licutenant-General Wightman, and, by their Bravery contributed not a little to the entire Defeat of fntrWSbeR'af <Sttfflm�I? wBWIe�eral of the Monroes" loft their Lives, and their Captain was carried off the Field dacgeroufly wounded. * Sir Robert Monro went early into the Army, and ferved in Flanders moftjPart of Queen Anne's Wars, where in the Stations of. Captain and Aid du Camp to One of the General Officers in the Confederate Army* he Behaved with fuch Refpmrion at many Battles and Sieges, asgain'd him univerfal Appjobation and Eftcem-In the Reign of King George I. Mwas made Governoi' of InVernefs-Caftle, and Commander of an Independent -Company, and wheri thefe Companies were united under < the Command of the Earl of Crawford, he was appointed ^ Lieutenant-Colonel of that Regiment. In this Station: he fought at the Battle of Fontenoy, and in thpColonel's Abfence led Pn the Regiment, who animated by the Example of an Officer of Worth and Experience, feveral times attack^ the Enemy, tho' covered with dcepEntrenchments, and guarded by Batteries of Cannon, with fuch Vigour and Succefs, that his Royal Highnefs of their good Behaviour, took particular Notice both of1 them and their .Commander j and his Majefty waspleas'd . to reward his Services wkh the Command of General Ponfonby*s Raiment/ whb was k&rd in that Aclion. Jn this Command he fell at the late unhappy Battle near Falkirk on the17 th of January feft, and loft avaluabl# Life, having firft deftsnp^d itaslbng, and fold it asdear< as could be expedid of fo brave a Man. For being left ^\ alone, he was attack'd by fix Highlanders with their broad Swords* againft whom.he defended himielf till two bf thorn fell in the Field, but a Seventh coming np drew a Piftot and ihot htm hi the Groin, upon which hk dropt down and then the Savages fo cut aha mangled his Face that his Body "would fcirce be known.' � Thus died Sir Robert Monro a. Gentleman pofleis'd, not only pf all the AttainmeniS/that qualify to wueia in the Field, but alfo o^allthe Virtues that adorn s^l^andiacia^Life * a firm andfteady Friend. Inviolable in Lis Attachmenc to the Caofeof Liberty. ^recoQciltfable in his Avetrfioa to Tyranny and Opprefimn.
