Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Waddell, Hugh 1734-1773 (search)
Waddell, Hugh 1734-1773 Military officer; born in Lisburn, Ireland, in 1734; settled in North Carolina in 1753; was made lieutenant in the regiment of Col. James Innes and took part in the Virginia campaign in 1758; built Fort Dobbs, which he commanded in 1756-57. During the expedition to Fort Duquesne in 1758 he commanded the North Carolina troops; promoted colonel in 1759. When the English war-vessel Diligence, which brought over the stamped paper, endeavored to land a detachment of troops at Brunswick in 1765, he seized the ship's boat, and compelled William Houston, the stamp officer, to sign a pledge in public, promising that he would never receive any stamped paper which might arrive from England, nor officiate in any way in the distribution of stamps in the province of North Carolina. In 1771 he conducted the campaign against the regulators. He died in Castle Haynes, N. C., April 9, 1773.
