Army pensions 1828 question
« on: Friday 21 December 18 20:40 GMT (UK) »
Friends,
My GGGF was discharged in 1828, I have the certificate, good conduct and with pension. How were the pensions paid? Can I use this to find addresses and when he died?

I don't know the pensions answer but if you give his name and year of birth we could look for his death. 

Does he appear on a census at all?  How old was he in 1828?

Paid into a bank. The pensioner would have to produce his discharge certificate in order to claim.
Curiously often a description of the pensioner was included to avoid fraud.

Thx both.

I have tried every which way to find a death record; Joseph Aguirra Born 1777 came to England 1801, married twice (last 1828) then nothing. Children born Lambeth and two marriages in The Strand just over the bridge. Daughter lived all her life in North Lambeth. He was RC.

Re pension. he served in First Foot (Grenadier) Foot Guards from 1801 to 1823. He was a drummer. The discharge description has been particularly helpful. Where could i go next to dig deeper. Presumably there will be a record of when his pension stopped paying. Would he be entitled to any sort of ex military burial maybe?

any and all help and advice gratefully accepted. Merry Christmas

Paul

Joseph Aguirra Born 1777 came to England 1801,

Where did he come to England from - where was he born?

If his daughter married after 1837 then her marriage record might say father deceased.

Where are his wife/children in 1841?

Is Mary Ann a daughter - if so she marries in 1843 and father is noted as deceased.

Joseph was possibly born Mexico, so Spanish. Bit strange as we were at war with Spain more often than not until 1808. There are entries in FH Sites for Aguirra in London, Lambeth and Marylebone.
