The 35th Foot or The Earl of Donegall's Regiment was originally formed as the Earl of Donegall's Regiment of Foot in 1693. It was raised in Belfast by Arthur Chichester, 3rd Earl of Donegall, and was disbanded in 1698 only to be raised again in 1701. The following link contains the names of some of the Regiment's officers in 1702. http://www.royalsussex.org/index2.html
