You seem to have quite a few posts on this family on the iste so forgive me if this does not look as if it belongs to this post!

If you look at the marriage certificate you will note that the witnesses were James & Emma HOPKIRK. On the same page os the marriage of James & Emma with David LITTLE & Elizabeth TUNNICLIFFE as their witnesses!

Following James HOPKIRK through the records, H e was a Sergeant in the RA at Fort Napier. Fort Napier was established in 1843 . I found his listing to a medal in  the Morning Chronicle London sated 19/03/1855 he is desc as Sergeant 5th Battallion RA

I found his service record which gives his place of birth Milrose Jedburgh Roxburghshire

There is also this site which may assist

Hi Elzabels,

Thank you so much for this gem! Robert was my great uncle.

I wonder if he went to visit his grandmother or grandfathers family.....may be a clue!

Thanks again for your hard work!

Could you tell me where you found this - I'd love to try and make contact with the "Little" researcher?
