FRANCIS, ALBERT  SANDERS     - 
GRO Reference: 1867  J Quarter in POPLAR UNION  Volume 01C  Page 620
 

This one is baptised as illegitimate son of Eliza FRANCIS

Yes that is why I think he is Alfredís brother as itís very similar

When Alfred died (Dec 1900). He was Staff Sergeant in The Ordnance Department in Poonamalee.
So...which regiments were there then?

FRANCIS, ALFRED  SANDERS     - 
GRO Reference: 1868  J Quarter in LEXDEN & WINSTREE UNION  Volume 04A  Page 314

If we go with the idea that Eliza was a SAUNDERS/SANDERS and just borrowing the name FRANCIS then Albert may have died at Boxted in 1868.

Albert Francis SANDERS
Age:    14 months
Burial Date:    31 May 1868
Burial Place:    Boxted, St Peter, Essex, England

May also just be a coincidence.

Oh gosh! Youíre a genius Iíve looked and looked it certainly does look like them back to the Colchester link ... who is Eliza?  At least this gives an idea of her age.

Oh it could well be couldnít it.   So that could can any idea that he may have been Daisyís father but it now helps me focus on working out who Eliza is as perhaps our ancestry is either to do with her or the fatherís side of her son.  If nothing else would be lovely for Dianne to get some answers.

I recall in a more recent message from Jenny (Dianneís daughter) that her mother thought before Army Ordinance he may have been with a Bedford Regiment which I donít know anything about.must look into that.

This could also be a coincidence but trees with Felix Francis have his grandmother as Sarah Wallis which the surname of the person above Eliza in that census is Wallis?
