John Chadwick was born in Bolton, Lancashire, England. The only son of a British Army Officer, he enlisted in 1740 at the age of 20. After spending time at a temporary camp at Lexden Heath, near Colchester, Essex in Southeast England, he saw action in Europe.
He fought with Pulteney's Regiment which formed a central front line position of the British Government forces at the Battle of Falkirk where Chadwick suffered a musket shot to his right arm during the initial fighting. He took part in the final defeat of the Jacobite Army at Culloden, 16 April 1746 again, as part of the front rank, facing the Highland charge.
