Hampshire Regiment in Ireland 1882 -- 1900 : John Perrin
« on: Wednesday 17 February 21 22:12 GMT (UK) »
I cannot find any information about John Perrin on National Archives, Ancestry, Findmypast or Familysearch websites.

Details of his movements are as follows :

Date                            Barracks                    Rank
 
July, 1882                    Carrick-on-Suir          Colour Sergeant

February, 1885             Cork                         Quarter Master C & D Corps

December, 1886           Cork                          Quarter Master C & F Corps

April, 1893                   Monaghan                  Barracks Master

September, 1898          Limerick                     1st Class Barrack Warden

In the marriage certificate of his daughter, in 1907, he is recorded as "War Officer A. S. B."

Where might I get his army records?

Colour Sergeant Perrin has been transferred from 1st Battalion Northamptonshire Regiment to the Commissariat and Transport Corps for the purpose of serving in the Barrack Section at Cork.

Irish Times, also the Northern Whig, 26 July 1883

Colour Sergeant J Perrin, of the Northamptonshire Regiment, stationed here, has received a medal for good conduct and long service.

Not the Hampshire Regiment. It was the Northamptonshire Regiment. His marriage record has it as "Northhampshire": https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_returns/marriages_1882/10978/8013321.pdf

Not really military details but may be worth checking out if you've not already seen it-

Thanks, ShaunJ.

I was thrown by the marriage cert reference to North Hampshire Regiment, and barking up the wrong tree completely.

Great to have his details at long last.

I think I have found his widowed mother Mary A Perrin (nee Gaffey) and some of his siblings in Dover in the 1871 census.
