Army Officer weds in India?
« on: Monday 28 March 05 12:36 BST (UK) »
Greetings fellow family seekers! I'm trying to get information regarding my Grandfather Henry Charles MASKELL b 1886. Family talk is he married for the 1st time a lady whilst in India,whilst serving in the Army  & had to wait for her to expire??before marrying again in 1950, at the age of 64!. How do I find out about this 1st marriage. Any ideas would be greatly helpful.
Kind Regards, Stella in Humid Hot Queensland, Australia! :D

Hi green, ... sorry, Stella !

try this link too, you may get lucky and find out more about Henry:

Immigrants / LINKS: Ancestors in British India

Also, (long shot, but who knows !) try the TNA (The National Archive) for MASKELL,
you never know your luck !
That's: http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/
and in particular: http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/militaryhistory/

Good luck !
Bob
