Sorry, your post is difficult to understand  ;)

1840 Islington marriage has
John Ashton Ashton (middle name is same as surname)
Full age - Bachelor- occupation labourer -residence Newington Green
Father Edmund Ashton occ Labourer
Emma Bazeley father William Bazeley occ Coachman

Where does the information that John & Edmund were both 'serving' in the forces come from  :-\

ADDED I see from earlier posts (links below reply 6) that this is what he told the newspapers on arrival in NZ.   :-\
