Hi, another mention of Alexander this time in WO 25/573 in Archives UK.

78 images in total, on image 54: Corporal Alex Mills inlisted (sic) 25 September 1803, appointed 25 January 1811 Reduced and discharged.

Also image 71: Alexander Mills  48, unsure what this means.

Craigt.

Hi, found in Archives UK record WO 25/574 Image 46 of 147:

Alex Mills joined 4 Garrison Battalion on 27 January 1807 from the 27th Regiment. The 27th was called "Inniskilling" (the old name for Enniskillen) as it was originally raised in the town of that name in County Fermanagh.

The Iniskillings were directly involved in Waterloo (1815, past our alex's time & involvement (and 200th anniversary this year))) but here's a great read on some background about Irish politics, religion and the demographic of the Irish men being raised for The Iniskillings http://www.napoleon-series.org/military/organization/Britain/Infantry/1-27Waterloo/c_1-27Waterloo.html

With Alexander Mills coming from Templecarne parish in Fermanagh, I'm still chipping away at the probability he is part of the Ulster settlement period (the planters); and whether his father migrated across in those early years? Fermanagh seems to have been settled with English labour from several particular counties. i'm posting this link because it has some useful background history on that Ulster history, as well as some fermangh information and photos, and although not at this point a connection to us it is interesting.

Hi , I am just wondering if anyone is still active on this thread and if they have any new information regarding the Mills family?

Thanks
Jac
