Hi again Chris, in case this is still of interest (!), I found out a little about Agnes' husband. He was Colonel Frederick Wright Hands, a colonel in the 105th Light Infantry, and his daughter's...

Thanks Chris, that's absolutely fascinating. I didn't know about French's Penge Directory of 1871 and I can't find it by googling it. Is it available to view online?
I know Mary Tanner was working...
For anyone researching relatives in Gibraltar between 1704 and 1914, I've just discovered that the Gibraltar National Archives has the Gibraltar censuses for the following years online, searchable by...
Thanks Christina - very helpful advice. Wouldn't it be good if A..y and FMP joined forces as one outfit so you didn't have to pay twice!
Sounds like a good idea! Thanks again for all your help, much appreciated.
Hi again Peter, I think my last post crossed with yours! I found William Morris service number 6410 on the Forces War Records site, but he was listed as being in the 15th Company, not the 11th, hence...
Hi Peter, yes I see, many thanks for your help. I'm new to researching military records. I can see a page on FMP for William Morris (service number 6401) called British Army Service Records 1760-1915...
Thanks Christina, that's so helpful. I'd like to see the full service record so I'll try the library for FMP and also add 1879 to my tree. Thanks so much!
I couldn't find William Morris's service record on the National Archives site. I googled WO97 1854 193 (the number Geneius gave me), but I couldn't see his record listed there. Maybe I was...
Apologies, I can see I've made a stupid mistake. My William Morris is service number 6401, Adjutants Detachment (in 1857) and 11th Company (1871). I had also noted down by mistake a...

Ah! That's neat. Thanks!
Hi Christina, yes it is!
Hi, I'd like to know if it was usual for a Royal Engineer to change battalions? I have a relative who I think started in the Adjutants Detachment in 1857, but in 1861 he's in the 15th Company in...

Oh, wow! Fantastic! Thanks so much!! I'm thrilled with that information. Sherlock Holmes couldn't have done better.
So sometime between 1861 in Warminster and 1871 in Penge, Mary met William...

That's interesting too, thanks pwholt. I'm not convinced this is my Mary Tanner either, but if not, where is she in 1861? She would have been 20 years old, so she may have left the county by then. I...

That's very interesting, thank you! This Mary's age fits, and the type of work she is doing. But I wonder why she put Allington as her birth place? Usually entries for the...

Hi, yes, got it!! In the 1871 census, Mary TANNER is a cook in Penge! Wow!
So if she was in Penge in April 1871, and getting married in Gibraltar in July 1871, it seems very likely that she...

Hi Geneius, that looks like my Mary!! But please could you clarify - what is the list referring to?
Many thanks again.
19-10-2016 11:25 PM
Hi, I found the marriage listed in the Gibraltar National Archives. They married on July 22 1871 at the Wesleyan Methodist Chapel. William MORRIS (age 31) was resident at Hargrave's Barracks, Mary...

Thanks very much for the info below. The person I'm really interested in, though, is Mary TANNER, and how and why she went to Gibraltar.
Do you know of any passenger lists of ships landing in...
19-10-2016 8:30 PM
Oops, that should say, Mary TANNER (born in Chapmanslade...).
19-10-2016 7:37 PM
Hi, I'm trying to trace exactly when Mary TANNER (born Chapmanslade, Wiltshire in 1841) went to Gibraltar, and also why and how.
In 1851 (age 11) she is living at home in Corsley, Wiltshire, with...
Hi Carol, if you look up Danny Howell's website, he has listed burials for Upton Scudamore from 1654 to 1992 - don't know if that's of any help?
