Think wife Jessie Gordon died in Girthon in 1863....explains why no more children.

David James Ewart, 46 died in Victoria in 1876 (reg. 5582). Parents David and Elizabeth (Hannay) https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XYMK-CY3.

At least confirmed!

Totally overwhelmed with the quantity and speed of the responses thank you all.

The further details we have are that David left the army in 1876 and settled in Bury Lancashire with his wife Mary (Beer) before moving on to Middleton where he lived out the rest of his life

The marriage to Mary is a bone of contention as well because we are unable to find any marriage record, there is a daughter born around the same time but again nothing confirmed by record, the early 1870s are as much of a mystery as Davids birth record.

One other possibly strange thing is that we have record for Mary Anne Beer born in Kent during 1840 being baptised in Dover during 1870, we are not sure if that is anything to do with the possible religious background of David
