Any information on Henry Stare would be great. (He was posted to Halifax, Nova Scotia).

You need to give a lot more info about him.   

Where & when was he born?
Which war did he serve in?

If it was WW2 & if he was English - those records are still with the MoD

What is/was his relationship to you?

The only information I have is that he was born in 1793 at Droxford, Hampshire and his wife's name was Mary also born 1793. Their daughter Elizabeth was born in 1837 in Halifax, Nova Scotia where the 52nd was stationed. I cannot find any military record of his service.

His parents were John & Lucy, he was baptised at Droxford 10th March 1793. 

Looks like some records of the 52nd are at TNA, Kew and not digitised

Have you searched the TNA website  :-\

Thank you Tony, that makes sense as the British Army marched to Paris after the Battle of Waterloo.
