Jane McCloy: Jane was the widow of Private McCloy (died in Australia) of HM 46th Foot who was in the same regiment as Charles (stationed in Van Diemens Land, and New South Wales in early 19

that's about all the info I have on Charles and jane  I thought I would pass it on  xC).

Thank you so much for going to so much trouble, I knew most of this but what I really needed to know is her maiden name which is impossible to find as we don't know the Christian name of the Private McCloy who died.  I did check and there was a Stephen and William McCoy with Charles in the 46th of foot but none of them fit the bill.  Is there any way to find out his name or her maiden name?

Thank you again.

Re: namtu burma ~Bennet and McCay

Hi, I am throwing myself into this research too and wondered you guys had turned up anything. After cross-referencing ancestry, fibis, and family search I ended up wanting to delete everying before the marriage of CHarles John Bennett and Anna Jordan, because working backwards that was my last best known good configuration - lol.

There are a couple questions. If Jane McCay was born in 1811 and was already a widow when she married John Bennet in 1825 she would have been 14 and already widowed. There is another Jane and John Bennet wedding listed too which had me confused. I think in the second case the Jane was born in England. I see a death for one Charles in India and another later in Scotland.

I am at w i l d l o r at g m a i l dot com if either of you want to talk off the web stream. Also am online via my D'Fini tree  (Millicent Clarissa Bennet (daughter of Charles John Bennett and Ellen Grace Goultchman Clarke was my mom's grandmother)) She married into the Finch family.

Name:   Charles Bennett
Gender:   Male
Marriage Date:   18 Jul 1825
Marriage Place:   Poonamallee, Madras, India
Spouse:   Jane Mcclay

Her death record shows 1811 as approx birth year.

The second marriage I was confused by is:
NAME:   Charles Bennett
GENDER:   Male
MARRIAGE DATE:   31 May 1825
MARRIAGE PLACE:   Calcutta, Bengal, India
SPOUSE:   Jane Lumsdeine Or Lumsdaine
FHL FILM NUMBER:   498955
HOUSEHOLD MEMBERS   
NAME   
Charles Bennett   
Jane Lumsdeine Or Lumsdaine

marriages two months apart both Charles's and Jane's


Interestingly Jane had a sister Francis and both married Bennetts about four years apart (probably brothers, both in Calcutta - John and Charles Bennett). Their birth years make more sense but I don't have enough family history to know which Jane and Bennett combo are "my"pair. 
I think it is the Madras Charles and Jane McClay - so I am probably in the same lane as you are Normalynne. I'll keep plugging away
