MaxD, what I am most interested in finding out is where his wife might have had contacts due to her husbandís postings. It might give me a clue about death certificates worth checking for his wife, who may have returned to Ireland after she was widowed. Yes, itís Charles Salter and his peculiarly untraceable family... he, his wife, his daughter and granddaughter ALL just disappear.

Would you mind giving us the names of the wife, daughter and grandddaughter please? Someone may just be able to find them.

It is possible they returned to Ireland - but you would think only to the wife's family links. For work reasons more Irish people came and stayed over here (or perhaps went to America). If the wife did return to Ireland I can only think she returned to her own family.

When do you actually 'lose' them please?
West Yorks; ---- Illingworth, Marshall, Muffit/Muffett/Murfitt, Barber, Sanderson, Townend, Barraclough, Lister -- and lots more. Locations mainly in Birstall parish - Hartshead-- Drighlington --Adwalton --Mirfield - Heckmondwike --Kippax - Sherburn in Elmet.

Ireland ------Cleary, Whelan - Nenagh.
Dowling - Monasterevin
Daly - Westmeath

Lancashire ---- Smith from Alston , Johnson and Fairclough---- Tarleton and loads more from Tarleton and Accrington areas.

Have you searched for a death registration on Irish Genealogy website? Salter isn't a common surname in Ireland so there aren't many to trawl through.  Do you know her forenames? Age at death is included entries in index. Images of death registers after c1880 can be viewed. Earlier ones are being added. Occupation box usually has "wife of farmer", "labourer's widow" etc.

Charles Salter married Mary Carroll. Her abode at marriage was Moor Park Street, Birr. Her father was Denis Carroll who was a millwright.
Have you discounted Mary Salter, widow, at Blackrock Road, Cork, Cork Urban no. 5 on 1901 census? Her age on census was 42. She was niece to head of household, William Blake. Also in household was Grace Salter, 17, born Devonport, Devon. She was William's great-niece so perhaps Mary's daughter. Her birthplace might imply a family connection to army or navy. Also present was Reta Williamson, nephew, who was female.  ;D

Hi,

I hope someone on this thread can answer my question:  when a British soldier died at a barracks in Ireland @1850 what was done with the body?

Also has anyone heard of Wenery, (maybe wenersy or winersy, etc.) Barracks?

Any help appreciated.  thanks, Jann

Does anyone know of a list of barracks used by the British Army during this period? It seems my 2x Great Grandfather (and his Irish wife and daughter?) may have spent a number of years, while he was serving, in Ireland. The list I got from the Rifles Brigade museum only says ĎIrelandí. As Iíve no idea what happened to any of them, Iím looking for possible leads. Ireland seems a possibility....

Here are two links that show the locations of the Rifle Brigade (RB) over the period you seek.  In particular note that for two years after 1881 the 2nd and 3rd Battalions RB remained at Cork/Curragh (2nd) and Dublin (3rd):

1.  https://web.archive.org/web/20120808222131/http://www.remthepast.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/location.html

2.  Click on each of the numbered battalions listed under ďRegularsĒ at this link to see their movement (there are some errors but most are correct):  https://web.archive.org/web/20080118040229/http://www.regiments.org/regiments/uk/inf/095RB.htm

3.  This link lists all the depot locations after 1874, including those in Ireland: https://web.archive.org/web/20080118043743/http://www.regiments.org/regiments/uk/depot/1873.htm

Frogsmile thanks for those links. My ancestor married a member of the Welsh Fusilier regiment in Ireland during the time of the first list.

Well that's a coincidence then.  I enlisted as a Boy with the Royal Welch Fusiliers myself and served 12-years before transferring elsewhere.

You might also find this link of interest: https://web.archive.org/web/20080118041521/www.regiments.org/regiments/uk/lists/bargxrefn.htm
It's very good, but does have some errors because it was compiled pre-internet.
