Rosie99 I have obtained marriage certificate: married 11th December 1843 in the parish of Edgmond. Robert's surname is spelt "Whilkson" described as a labourer , resident in Edgmond at the time of marriage. So any military career would have been between c. 1837 (when aged 16) and 1843 when he was married and described as a labourer, or between 1843 and 1851 census when again described as a labourer??
Roberts father is stated as George Whilkson and a stone mason.
I don't however seem any further forward, any ideas where to go from here please??

Found Eliza Hamlet aged 15 living in Edgmond very close to the Pruden family (Roberts wife family) in the 1841 census and Richard Moulstone living in Edgmond in the 1851 census?

Thank you CarolA3 and rosie99,
Unfortunately I seem no further forward. I seemed to have trawled through a lot of the 1841 census looking for George Wilkinson but to no avail. I actually don't have Robert Wilkinson on the 1841 census either  ???

The two witnesses both marry in Newport 1850.

GRO gives mothers MMN for Moulstone as George.
