Further to my message number 353.

According to John Brindley's military records, he was born in Audley in 1792, most likely in July/Aug. He remained in the 2nd regiment of the Life Guards for 25 years. He was discharged in Mar 1841, having a very good conduct record as a soldier, but being in poor health. He spent his entire time in the Guards in England. At the time of enlistment, in Newcastle under Lyme, July 1815, he gave his occupation as 'nailer.' There is a brief physical description of him and the reasons for his discharge for ill health, but no mention of his family. Apparently that information was not customarily recorded till many years later.
