Hi Frederickay, I'm researching Jones as well, it seemed he had a very eventful life!

Still trying to piece together a bit more about his fall-out with Cumberland, if you know anything?

The Common Room / Major Charles Jones (d. 1843)

I know there have been several threads about this character before, but none for the last few years, so I was wondering if someone could help me flesh out his life a little.

I know he fought in Wellington's army at Waterloo, became the Duke of Cumberland's equerry and eventually moved to Germany, until 1839 when he returned to London. He accidentally shot himself with a pistol while cleaning it, in his house in Montague Square in 1843.

I'm also aware of the secret family he had with a Lavinia, as well as his two illegitimate daughters.

I'm looking for any information I can re. his military record, his time spent with the Duke of Cumberland (including the death of his valet, Sellis) and the possible blackmail(?) of him by Lavinia.
