John Carroll
« on: Saturday 19 September 20 00:18 BST (UK) »
I had such a lot of help on this forum previously with my Carroll ancestors in Ireland. I was able to find John Carrolls service records, private No. 443 1st battalion, 17th regiment of foot. According to these he was born in Clare Abbey, Ireland abt. 1841, enlisted aged 18 at Ennis, Ireland and served for 21 years in North America, India and Afghanistan before being discharged in 1881 and going to Dublin. I've managed to find a lot of his childrens birth records with his wife Mary Jane Breen, born abt. 1846 in Fermanagh, Ireland, the first one Mary Anne Carroll born Feb 1862 Newmarket, Ontario, Canada. However I've looked everywhere I can think but can't find their marriage. I can only assume that since he was stationed in Canada that they married there before having Mary Anne. Appreciate any guidance you could give me, thanks
