Thread: Where can I find a Service Record for The Royal Engineers, 1891?

    FWIW - I have lost count of the times that "Mary" has been read as "Marg" and corrected by some over enthusiastic clerk to "Margaret".

    Well it is all looking very logical, not sure if you can ever prove it all, but a marriage cert and death cert may help?

    can't find them in 1881 though.

    They're Lodging with Mary Gallagher at:

    7 Gardner St, Manchester on the 1881 Census:
    Ref:RG11 Piece 3931 Folio 19 Page 32.

    Now all I need to do is to try and find him on the 1901 and 1911 Censuses!

    For those who haven't/can't see it:
    From his service Record
    Address 6 Harper St Manchester a painter.
    No 2014 - 3rd Battalion Manchester Regiment. Militia.
    Ashton under Lyne was the County Depot
    He signed up for 6 years (actually 7y 4 m) from 17 Nov 1886. age 22y 10m

    He was unmarried according to his father Richard of 6 Harper St who vouched and signed for the recruit!!!!!
    Do you think he was lying?

    I suppose if you're Widowed, then technically speaking you're Unmarried?

    I think the 7 years 4months was how long Richard had resided at 6 Harper Street??

    Cant see a death for Mary Ann or Mgt between 1880 and 1886.
