Hi there,
I havenít got to Grace Broadway and the Mereweathers yet - my in-depth tracing of William and Frances Broadways family has taken months as they had so many descendants! They had 14 children - William, Mary, Elizabeth, Frances, James, Henry, Anna, Christian, Grace, Patience, Stephen, Cornelius,  Lydia and Charlotte. Most had children. I am descended from Anna. Many of the children made good marriages or were influential in their own right so thereís a lot to be found. I will get back to you when I have had a look at Grace. I am just finishing Christianís descendants. Helen

Thanks for that.
I was just looking at another Merryweather Frank born in 1871.
He joined the Dorset Regiment and seems to have been invalided out and became a Chelsea Pensioner.
I haven't been able to see the detail of this as it seems to require yet another subscription!
He died in 1904. I would like to have found out a little more about him, so grateful if any one has any ideas.
Regards

Thanks for the information about Frank. I wonder if it is possible to view his service record as it seems likely that he may have been injured as he appears to have become a Chelsea Pensioner at quite a young age and died at age 33.
Regards
Bob

Frank's Army Records are on FindMyPast and although Chelsea Pensioners is part of the title of the series of records (from the transcription) the actual records end in 1902.
It does contain a form with these questions
Wounded?-No
Effects of wounds?-None
Injuries?=Nil
If you would like to send me your email address via PM, I would be happy to send you the records, understand if you prefer not to share that information with a stranger. Let me know.
