John Henry Purtell

I am trying to trace any decendants of my GGUncle John Henry Purtell 1837-1875. He was a Corporal in the 97th Regiment and served in the Crimea and the Indian Mutiny. He was married to Elizabeth Ladd 1844-1874.

Their children were:

John Henry b.1862 at Jubbulpore Hindustan, India.

William b.1869 d.December 6, 1876 at Hospital for hip disease. 18 Queen Square. Bloomsbury.

Robert W. b.1870 at Dover

Sarah Elizabeth b.1872 at Mullingar, Westmeath, Ireland.

James A. b.1872 at Colchester Barracks.

I believe from reading his letters that there may have been another daughter, Dorothy.

By the 1881 Census the only child I can find is John Henry who was on H.M.S Druid.

Any information will be gratefully recieved.

Steve.
