Joseph Munday, 7th Hussar served at Waterloo
« on: Thursday 03 July 14 15:03 BST (UK) »
I'm looking for information regarding Joseph Munday (1787-1870).  He was born in Wimbledon, Surrey according to 1861 census.  His first marriage was to Isabella Rose Allender and where he had at least four children.  I would like to find out what happened to Isabella Rose before he married Martha Almond in 1850, and the names of the children that Joseph and Isabella had.  I can only find four daughters, and I know there must be more children.  How do I find this information?  Didn't the families follow the soldiers during their travel?  Joseph was a 7th Hussar for over 20 years.  Did the Army keep records of births and deaths of family members?
Thanks, AZRose

On the Find My Past website there are records of British Nationals Armed Forces Births, Marriages and Deaths.

There is a record for the death of Isabella R. Munday in 1828, Dublin, Ireland. Regiment 7th Queens Own Hussars.

The reference number is Vol 263, Page 31.

If it is the correct Isabella - she must have been quite young at the time of her death -- hence this may not be her.

If you think it may be the correct death, you should be able to order the 'record' from the General Register Office - simply quoting the details given.
Places of interest;
Lancashire, West Yorkshire, Southern Ireland, Scotland.

I am historian, living near Waterloo Belgium, and I search more infos about Joseph Munday. who was guide on the battlefield after the dead of Edward Cotton(isla of Wight, jan 20, 1793 - Braine-l'Alleud, Belgium, June 24, 1849) and buried in the orchard of Hougoumont (on the side of Cpt. Blackman).

I know that Cotton married Sara Bean (but where and when ?) and coming in Belgium te Ixelles (Brussels) in 1835 where is born the firts daugher, in 1835. Elisabert, in 1838, Marie-Anne, 1842, Edouard, 1844 and Louise, 1847, are the others children.

But it seems that Cotton was firts married with the sister of the wife of Joseph Mundy (Elisabert Rose Allender)but I search his name, dates and place of birth/dth, etc.

And the same for Isabella Rose Allender...

For info, Joseph Munday is buried in the Castek cemetery,  Monroe, Jonhson County, Iowa and the text of the stone is : Joseph Munday 1787 - Nov. 6, 1870    A veteran of the battla of Waterloo, d. 6 Nov. 1870 83y 7m".
That's correct : Joseph is in 1815 in the 7th Hussars, the same as Cotton.

Where and when is Munday born ? Where and when Allender and the second spouse, Martha Almond in born and death ?
µEDtc...

Can you help me ?

Sorry for my bad English.

Read my articles concerning tge Batlle of Wateloo on my site : www.freepub.be... but only in French...

Tks
Claude

Hello Claude,

Is there a way to see your website information in English?  I don't speak French.

Thanks, Deanna

Hello Denna,

No, sorry, only in French.

No news for me about Munday ? And Martha Almond : marriage... where and when ?

The sister of Isabella Rose Allender is Ambroisine Allender (probably native in the North of France.

I have a scoop for you : Joseph Munday in buried in the Castek Cemetery, Monroe, Johnson County, Iowa.

On the stone :
Joseph Munday
A veteran of the battle of Waterloo
1787 - Nov. 6, 1870 83y 7m

Enjoy,
Claude

Good evening,

Deanna, click on the link given by Claude. Then right click on the background and in the drop box click on translate with bing. You can get it all in English that way.

Did Isabella Rose Allender die in Nantes, France in 1847?

Is this your site Deanna?

It also seems he was 71 years old he was brought to court for Bigamy!
"At the Hull Police-court, on Monday. Joseph Munday, a man 71 yeare of age, was charged with. committing bigamy, by in- termarrying with Mary Ann Leitb his first wife lieing still living. The prosecutrix, an officers daughter, is 71 years of age, had been three times previously married, and, at the time of becoming acquainted with the prisoner, resided at Maze-pond.

Yes, the blog is a work in progress.  I'm hoping to expand it in the future.
I am aware of Joseph Munday's bigamy scandal.  It was probably what compelled him to take his family and immigrate to the USA.
