Hi Jane

Many Many Thanks great news you mention the name Garrett well in a big family  photo
it gives surnames eg Clay/Knox/Garrett/Leigh/Austin/Hobson/Crawley/Melville
so some where along the line I think they are linked Garrett fits in with the marriage
very nicely

Just found the birth of Frances C.C. Knox.  Born 17/8/1866, Kilkeel, Down, Ireland.
So, I would imagine Robert James was born somewhere in county Down as well...still looking & for his father, R. H. Ross  :)

Well done John  :)
It would seem that both the Ross & Knox family's had Anglo-Irish heritage with a long tradition within the British Army!  I'm also wondering if there was a family tie with Brigadier General Robert Ross who burnt down the White House in 1812  :-\
Do you have all you need now for your article?

When you say, 'where they lived' are you refering to Roslyn Cottage in Newcastle Co. Down or Friars Croft in Guildford?
You might find some links to help in Genuki Ireland http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/irl/DOW/index.html

As for pictures of Robert James, I checked online at the National Portrait Gallery & they don't have anything on their index but it might be worthwhile contacting them.  Otherwise it would be a case of contacting a direct relative who might have some family pictures.  We only know of the son, Ralph Francis Patrick, so you need to find his children/grandchildren.  Try contacting his regiment, they might have something or the National Army Museum in Chelsea,
