What other details do you have for Charles as regards when and where he was both baptised and married, when and where any children were baptised, etc.

sorry for the delay in replying but been in France...ok Charles was baptised in january 1708 in St Martin in the Fields. He joined the Royal Regiment of Artillery posted in Minorca but recalled to Britain when Bonnie Prince Charlie invaded in 45 and was stationed in Berwick upon Tweed. He married Fortune Crawford in July 1747 had their only child the same year and Fortune was buried in 1782 as a widow. The latter three events all took place in Berwick and i think my last payment too him there from his Regiment occurred about 1747. I can find no buriel for him at all...
