Of the several series of militia lists that exist for Northamptonshire, those for 1777 cover the whole of the county except for the Nassaburgh Hundred (better known as the Soke of Peterborough). The militia lists for 1762 for the Nassaburgh Hundred can be found in Volume 32 of the Society's publications A Northamptonshire Miscellany, which is also available on-line.

An erratum for Northamptonshire Militia Lists 1777 appears in Volume 32; it is included here for convenience.

The frontispiece shows Thomas Rowlandson's painting of the Northamptonshire Militia at Brackley in 1807.
