Yes, he probably was.  Selina, the eldest child of Joseph and Mary married a Royal Marine.  I was amazed how much information is online about his life, made a change from my standard ag labs!

From several Registers of 7th Dragoon Guards both Joseph Lambert and Robert Dillon we’re in the same Troop E.  There was only 2 years age difference, although Joseph lost 3 years after discharge - according to census.  Mary had a baby in 1810, so I imagine she was only about 16 yrs old.  Of course Robert could be a brother!

I think that the sibling theory is very likely, Kath.  Perhaps Robert’s father had been in the Army too and if Mary was indeed related then she’d have been raised in barracks and well used to the life.  There was a great deal of family connectivity in the Army.

Many thanks both of you for your help.  I am resting this at the brick wall for now - I seem to be looking for a female birth in Scotland and possibly a sibling in Ireland, neither of which I can find.  I am looking for a marriage - which I think will probably be in Ireland 1805-1810, but find nothing.  If only Mary had lived a few months longer to the 1851 census, I may have had answers.  Just one more question, it occurs to me that Mary and Joseph could have been married by a Military Pastor, or similar - do you know if this is possible and if so are there any records anywhere?

Yes it’s conceivable that the marriage took place under the auspices of a military ‘chaplain’ (later often called ‘padre’ because of the time spent by Wellington’s armies in Spain and Portugal). If in barracks or cantonment (India) there were records kept.  The former often survive if in Ireland and quite a number have done so in India too.  Each garrison or regimental depot usually had its own church.

That sounds a little hopeful, since the marriage may have taken place in Ireland.  I have no idea where else to look, so will just keep trying my standard resources in the hope that something appears - so much is coming on line.  It could of course be a good excuse, as if I need one to visit Ireland again!!!

There is a Blog "Irish garrison towns" and you might find details about his station (garrison) there.

Thank you, that looks interesting.  I shall certainly read it, but perhaps not today!

You suggested earlier that Joseph's father might have been a soldier.  It looks as though he was.
I have found a record in the Chelsea regimental register 48th - 59th foot in Ancestry that fits with a suitable Baptism and wife.  I now know his father's name, so maybe he was a soldier as well!  Now to see if I can find him!
