Funny you should ask  :) :) :) :) :)    Not nosy - just interested  :) :)

My request of the Manx Museum for a look up on their index - at Frances's suggestion- turned up a reference in the Manx Advertiser to their wedding in 1803 and the fact that the 'house' he was living at must have been vacated the following year because the lease had been given up.

I think the brick wall must remain.  I am in contact with someone from Australia who may well have John as part of his family - but initial contact shows no knowledge of the Royalty story  :) :) :)

If I am the King .  .  .  .  I'll see what I can do.  :) :)

Hello. Have any of you come across a Thomas Caird, said to be from Montrose and born about 1756?
Thomas Caird was a surgeon in the Royal Navy and served on board the Temeraire at Trafalgar.
He married Elizabeth in Devon, had some children, then died in 1822.
I can not find his birth anywhere, but there are some Caird's in Montrose, at the right time. Could he be using a second name? He would not be the first to alter his name.
