    Sorry to disappoint you but I only have this census (made a mistake putting a 6 instead of a 5).
    The census was ordered in 1920 why my mother never knew. But it does indicate the number of children Thomas and Catherine had and I would love to find them all.

    Ah well I'll keep searching for their marriage and all their children. Thank you.

      Lorna, have you looked for a military record, and if so, where? Do you know when he left service?

      This might have some records that you're looking for, but it isn't online?

      Do you know where they married, or where child #1 was born?

      That last one is online, but un-indexed. Tap the camera on the right side and you may flip thru the images.

        Just some thoughts. If, as we believe, Catherine was born around 1810 and the 83rd ft moved from the Cape to the East Indies, in 1817(Wiki) and Thomas' Service Record, did she perhaps travel with family to E Indies, marrying Thomas later in 1822.

        I gather only the records of couples married by the Army Chaplain ended up at the GRO although not all are recorded on that site (Roots Chat).

        Have you contacted them for a marriage in E Indies possibly yet to be recorded?

        Do you have details of baptism of Eliza in Kandy1826

          He left service aged 46, therefore 1844 I think.

          In the quest for the mystery daughters - how have you got the names Claude Leeper and George Rutter as the names for their husbands? (Post 8)
          I'm not getting anywhere with either of those names.
          Did you notice that one of the witnesses on the 1879 Newell- Flinter marriage was a G Flinter? Any idea who that was?

          I found Catherine Landsley living in Cowley, Oxfordshire in 1871, aged 23, seamstress, with her aunt Caroline (Flinter) Ludecke, her husband Ernest Ludecke and their children.

            uh, not the expert here, but shouldn't he have a Chelsea Pensioner's record? I've seen some really interesting, informative ones, that included marriage place and date, details of service locations, and so on.

            Lorna, have you looked? Anyone else want to go thru FMP?

              Thank you everybody.
              i have his full military record, served East Indies 11 years and discharged in 1844. I have details of medical reasons for discharge. He was Chelsea pensioner.
              i recently found a daughter Eliza(my gg gran) was born in Kandy and baptised in st Pauls on 15feb 1826. Thomas's surname was recorded as Flinton. Eliza married Thomas Landsley they had one child , Catherine. Unfortunately Thomas died before she was born so Flinters brought her up and her mother Eliza remarried I. Dublin. Going by the blanks on a1851 Ireland census there is 6 x's -no names but in married column 5 married 1 not married!!
              My mother gave me to understand Leeper and rutter were related!!
              Jane Flinter was youngest. Married 1879 to james Newell. Caroline baptised in Chester 1837, married Ludecke. My mother had told me about them and their large family.

              Thomas Flinter buried Drumbanagher co Armagh (1874) his wife Catherine's name on headstone but according to parish records not buried there!! So I've to find out where.
