Ireland / Age of a minor at marraige
« on: Tuesday 15 December 15 12:01 GMT (UK)  »
My GrGrGrand parents were married in Clonmel on the 13th August 1849. GrGrGrand father was George MURCH, 'of full age (subsequently proven to be 23 years old) who was a soldier stationed there.  GrGrGrand mother was Mary HICKIE, a minor. Not sure if a daughter of another soldier or a local girl.   The 1861 census gives Mary's age as being 29, so born 1832, implying she was 17 when she married.    As she was in India from 1866 till her death in childbirth in 1870 I can not think of any way of proving her age and subsequently finding a birth certificate or record of  baptism.   What was the age that a person was classed as a minor?

London and Middlesex / Poplar Workhouse inmates

I think (and hope) that I have found my greatgrand father as an inmate in the Poplar workhouse.  My question is ' would a carpenter be allow to live in a workhouse'   He was there for both the 1901 and 1911 census, in 1901 as married, yet no trace of a wife with him and a widow in 1911.   I was under the impression that the workhouse was for those individuals unable to support themselves.

Armed Forces / Mounted Soldier

I have attached a photo of a Mounted Infantryman.  The photo, undated, was taken by an Indian Photographer, 'Ram Dayal' in Cawnpore.  I always thought that Mounted Infantry were only in South Africa during the Bore War.  Can anyone confirm that Mounted Infantry were in India and any idea about his regiment.
