*  These two lists are actually a single document which is undated.  I suspect these are the "Militia Returns 1754 - 1755:  Carteret Foot . . . Capt'n Joseph Fulford (and) Will: Fulford (under command of) Coll. Tho: Lovick."  (State Records, XXII, p. 307). Thanks to Dr. Bob Lewis for citing this reference
