Hi I wasn't sure about Grimes being at Waterloo . i now believe is Lt. Robrt Grimes definately in the Peninsula War
... Captain Major Charles Jones was a brigade Major the 15th Cavalary with Coloquon .orfor possibly a dutch contingent . i will look it up again . He went on to become the ADC for Ernest Duke of Cumberland .Ernest Augustus, King of Hanover - Wikipedia,_King_of_Hanover
Ernest Augustus was King of Hanover from 20 June 1837 until his death. He was the fifth son ... In 1799, he was created Duke of Cumberland and Teviotdale.

Hi Martin < My relative Major ?Captain Charles Jones 1783-1843 , 15th hussars and ADC to the king of Hanover fought at Waterloo.
 He went on to kill himself >>>> accidentally ??? ::) ... with a firearm he was cleaning. In his obituary it says he went back to the battlefield to retrieve said gun . Have you heard this story at all in your research . ?
I have not found any info on his early life or who he was married to at the time . It has been mention his friend was a Captain Grimes but i am afraid i know nothing of him ,
 I am thinking out of the square and hoping to find the Grimes connection.
I am happy with any info you may have to point me in right direction . TY> Fred,

Hi >Just re read these posts. So out of interest i did find Unity C
Williams/evans/connelly /Pretty . she had died as ken said and i found her burial place. my mother left england in 1952. she wrote to uni in 1958 but sent letter to wrong address. uni had left mr connelly and married another man Uni died in 1961. Mum visited England 1991 to find she uni was dead. i contacted Unitys son by phone since these posts and have visited him several times in England and also aunty unitys grave . It was a different world in the 50 and 60s ... it was financially unheard of to phone  home and once mum had lost the                 address that was that . i am glad i have contacted   
 Uni son and made great family connection . Fred.
