The births and deaths of many characters in the Outlander series are approximated in the following chart.
Spoiler Warning: The following chart includes the birth dates and death dates of all characters for whom the birth date is given in the books (either explicitly or based on other information). This includes characters that have died in each of the books, up to and including Written in My Own Heart's Blood and all of the Lord John series.
‡ = Estimate based on age
- ↑ Chapter 4, Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade: Percy gives his age, in winter/early spring of 1758, as 26.
- ↑ According to the events of "A Fugitive Green", Ben was actually born in 1745. The year 1752 was determined by Ben's age (6) in Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade.
- ↑ "Ellen Fraser had died in childbirth, aged thirty-eight. My own mother [Julia] had been thirty-two." — Chapter 85, "Hearthfire", The Fiery Cross. Birth and death years are estimates.
- ↑ Because of Jerry's time traveling, he was 22 when he died. His plane went missing in 1941, but when Roger sends him back through the stones, he goes forward to (probably) 1943, in time to arrive at the tube station just before it collapses.
