Captain Benjamin Merrell &

The Regulators of Colonial North Carolina

Names of North Carolina Regulators

This list is largely the compilation of Jerry Cross, Researcher, Historic Sites Section, North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources, 27 Nov 1974 that is available at the Alamance Battleground site.  He compiled it from petitions to the Assembly and to the governor by North Carolina residents who were sympathetic to the Regulators.  How many of this list actually actively participated in resistance movements or demonstrations is unclear.  Some were present at Alamance and died there.  Some corrections and additions have been made by the current author, WLM, in response to readers and new information.
