Me again.  I just realised I had mis-typed the date of his enlistment which was 1831 - not 1841.   So please ignore the last message typed in haste while tired!  Margaret born in Ireland before his enlistment.  His service with the 25th is problematic - his pay muster records on Norfolk Island show his enlistment numbers for both the 25th and the 11th regiments.   He was 20 years old when he enlisted with the 11th so I have no idea how young he might have been when he enlisted with the 25th.  J
