A reader's inquiry: about Captain John Giles in Tangier in 1671
A reader made the following query. I have edited that somewhat. QUERY: Can any contributors supply information on a Captain John Giles, of the Percy Kirke regiment in 17th-century Tangier, who, according to Pepys's TANGIERS PAPERS, was married in Tangier January 29th, 1671. The reader wanted to know the maiden name of the woman he married, who may have been a native African, and some biographical information about Captain Giles.
