  1. Scotland's airmy wis integratit intae the Inglis establishment
  2. Aw dates in the airticle are in the Gregorian calendar (unless itherwise statit). The Julian calendar as uised in Ingland till 1700 differed bi ten days (efter 1700 the calendar differed bi 11 days till Great Breetain adoptit the Gregorian calendar in 1752). In this airticle (O.S.) is uised tae annotate Julian dates wi the year adjustit tae 1 Januar.
  3. Aulder texts mey refer tae the war as the War o the Inglish Succession, or, in North American historiography as Keeng William's War. This varyin nomenclatur reflects the fact that contemporaries – as well as later historians – viewed the general conflict frae particular naitional or dynastic viewpoints.
