From your other thread - I posted this so maybe this info should be here instead/ as well as the Irish thread.

Here is John, I think in 1851 2268/611/23

John Bleach b 1825 Havant, Hampshire

Earlier in the census pages, on page 4, the officers are shown as 85th Light Infantry. They are at Fulwood Barracks, Preston, Lancashire. Is this is a different regiment though to 85th Bucks? :-\

Later the same year, he marries Margaret in Scarborough.

There is a birth
1853 June quarter Isle of Wight
Sarah Ann Bleach mmn Ryan
