Can any one tell me what units (and uniforms)were active there in the 1680s -1690s?

Also was there any sort of uniform the militias wore at that time?

Thank You

According to Angus Konstam's Osprey on the buccaneers, Spanish militia units in the West Indies started to receive uniforms around 1670. Infantry were supplied with, at the very least, white coats, and the cavalry were given a complete uniform in grey. Plates featuring both are included in the book.
