Would anyone happen to know where the regimental depot for the 76th regiment was located in 1814?

In 1814 the depot companies of the 76th (Hindoostan) Regiment of Foot were at Albany Barracks (aka Parkhurst) on the Isle of Wight.  Depots were generally established in seaports and inland ports so that drafts of reinforcements could be sent by ship wherever their parent units were located.  Albany barracks was a depot for various regiments over many years and completely rebuilt in 1902.  In the 1960s it was handed over to the Home Office and became a Prison.
