From A Compendium of Irish Biography, 1878
Dillon, James, Marechal-de-Camp, was born in Ireland, and was with his father and family expatriated after the Cromwellian wars; he entered the service of the King of France, 26th March 1653, raised a regiment called after him, and commanded it until the peace of the Pyrenees. He served with distinction, especially at the battle of Dunkirk. General Dillon died in 1664, and his regiment was disbanded.

Charlotte Milligan Fox, sister of the poet Alice Milligan, was a founding member of the Irish Folk Song Society and an indefatigable field collector of Irish traditional music. Her singularly important work on Irish haprers is here presented for the twenty-first century reader. This edition of Annals offers a much greater number of illustrations than were included in the original 1911 publication, a full biographical introduction, an extensive bibliography of the writings of Milligan Fox and an appendix discussing the variant texts of Arthur O’Neills Memoirs.
