Thank you Tazzie. More information i'm sure I wouldn't have found by myself. I'm very grateful.
Rosie, thanks again. I haven't used Lincs to the Past before but will certainly check it out now. What a shame I have to go to work today with all these leads to follow  :)

Is Joseph LEANING a bachelor at marriage to Charlotte PINE?. 

Joseph, with sons Samuel, Moses, Aaron and Job, and marrying at very adult age, you might expect to see him give his own name to a son. 

Maybe he already has a son Joseph LEANING?

That would make a lot of sense, particularly as it appears that Joseph and Charlotte weren't married until 1832. Perhaps Samuel himself was from Joseph's first marriage. Thank you.

I came across that information but there was nothing to identify the age or place of birth of that particular Joseph Leaning, so I haven't added it to my Joseph's record. Had I found him serving in the West Indies at the time of Samuel's birth though, it would have been too much of a coincidence to ignore. Thank you for passing it on.

It may be worth posting on the army boards in case someone can help to find location of the 22 regt of foot around the time Joseph was born

I see that MaxD has been really helpful (as usual)  with information on the military records placing Joseph in 1830  ;D

I wonder if the marriage between Joseph and Charlotte indicates whether they were both widowed.  Sorry I only have access to transcripts.

Yes, MaxD's help has been brilliant, confirming that the Joseph in the earlier military records is highly likely to be my Joseph, because of that regiment's service in Jamaica at the time of Samuel's birth. That does suggest that Samuel's mother is not Charlotte, but that Joseph married her on his return home and began a new family with her. I wonder whether Joseph's first marriage might even have taken place in Jamaica or at an earlier posting and not in his home county at all ?
