.....
I live in Australia, I was in the UK in June and had only one day to spare at the National Archive in Kew.  I looked up the 1804 Muster Pay List they were station according to the Pay List between 25 June to 24 July in Rathkeale. .and Newcastle is a long way from Rathkeale.  ....... to where he might have been recruited..

Australia ..... have you checked the AJCP ..... they have quite a number of reels of pay lists and musters  :)

Mr Google probably has live links to the rest of the state and territory libraries.   

Fingers crossed

I don't know if they did all the muster and pay lists,  but I do know they did plenty.   :)   

Fingers crossed for you.

Thank JM

It did be incredible if they have it here when I went all the way to the UK. Still it would be great to re-check some information again.

Hi Maria

So are you saying he joined 22 May but was not paid by the Paymaster until July?

The dates you quote are the start and end days of the month. The muster should tell you how many days he was paid for within each period.

My understanding is that AJCP only copied records of interest to Australian researchers.

Hi Ken,

Yes, that's what it looks like to me because the previous pay period he is not mentioned (25 May to 24 June) he was recruited on the 22nd May.

See attached sheet for pay period 25 June to 24 July 1804. I include two sheets of the same, one is a close up. See Cornelius Bonner - "Recruited join from Lt Murray".  I also include the sheet stating recruit date.

With regard to the AJCP I agree with you this may be the case.

Thank you.

Hi Ken,

Can't seem to reduce the size of the whole sheet anyway the main details is in the close up.
