Thanks for your reply. I am searching for Gunner John Bradford - according to his sons birth cert he was in Valenciennes France in 1817. He wa in the Royal Horse Artillery 3rd Battalion and he was possibly from Northamptonshire as his son William went to live there (Wellingborough) when he left the army. John was married to Elizabeth - many thanks

No Bradford from Northamptonshire I'm afraid. I'll PM you the authors email and you can ask him if he has your man on his list of Waterloo men.

Hi I just found your post thankyou. Does the booklet have any personal information about the soldiers from Northamptonshire?  :)

It depends on the soldier. Usually his home place is known, date of enlistment, age at the time, unit served in and date of death. His trade might be given also. Have you a name you're researching?

Might be a red herring but a sister Veronica went to N Z with Patricia Dolan 1962

Thanks for the reply. Might be worth following up although she would have been very old by the 1960s.

Does the British Army overseas register include marriages?

Ireland wasn't overseas in the 1890s. I would think that a marriage would still have to be registered in the county in which it took place anyway.

In my great grandfather's obituary from February 1951 there is a mention of his sister attending the funeral.

My great grandfather was James Dolan and he died in Cloughjordan, Co. Tipperary. He was however from Co. Offaly, most likely from Glebe. His sister is named only as Sr. Patricia.

My question is how does one go about tracing a nun. An obvious start would be the newspapers since they invariably recorded everything to do with the religious. Anybody else have any ideas.

No I don't have the marriage certificate. I only know that Ellen's maiden name was Reddington as I can remember my dad telling me once, and the 1911 census asked how long a couple had been married.

Family lore is notoriously unreliable. One of my aunts thought her grandmother (died 1895) was named Dixon but it turned out she was Ferns.

The owner of this blog provides research into Waterloo soldiers

15 for a report on an individual.

He has also produced a booklet on the men of Northamptonshire who fought in the battle. It's basic but interesting and informative nonetheless. Cost 6.

Leicestershire Waterloo Men is in the offing.

World War One / Re: Charles Frederick Challis, Unable to Locate Army Records

There is a MIC for a Charles F Challis who served in the Royal Engineers, Army Ordnance Corps and Royal Warwickshire Regiment. The numbers do not match however. If your Challis didn't serve overseas he would not have been awarded medals and so would not have a Medal Index Card.

Tipperary / Re: MULLALY - Mullinahone

Does anyone out there have any connection with the MULLALY(s) of the Mullinahone area. I have good reason to believe that my ancestors could well have left this part of Ireland for England and changed their name to my maiden name, MULELLY. This happened over time during the 19th C. Would love to hear from anyone looking for similar families.  Kate.

This may be of interest to you
