Joseph Brown, cannot locate him
« on: Monday 26 February 18 16:44 GMT (UK) »
Hello
I hope someone can help.
I'm trying to research my Great Grandfathers brother, Joseph Brown.
I want to see if had any military service, problem is, i cannot locate him.
Here is what i know about the family.
Joseph's Mum and Dad...

William Brown, born around 1843 Co Fermanhaga 1901 census living at Tennent St Belfast
Elizabeth Brown, nee Hand born around 1851, still living at Tennent St on the 1911 census, William had died. Married in 1870.
Sisters Alice, sarah, mary, Martha

My Great Grandfather was William Robert Brown born 1880 he was in the Army at the time so not on the census.
On my G Grandfathers service record, it lists all his sisters and one brother, Joseph, i cant find a record of his birth or annything.
so any help in finding Joseph will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Hello,
Just got back from work to a whole host of replies, thank you all.
All I know of Joseph is literally that his name is on my G GF's service record, my GGF was born in Derry, Londonderry, 1880,_joined the Army in 1900, so Joseph I'd say could have been born anywhere between William and Elizabeth getting married in 1870 and 1880 ish as he's not on the 1901 census, its a shame the birth index doesn't give a maiden name, then you'd have it if 'Hand' was the mothers maiden name.
Oh, his father William was ex RIC, there is nothing on his record about his children.
Thank you all again for your time, hopefully someone can find something

Cheers
