Di,

have you seen the baptism for his son Albert Amos on the ancestry LMA images. Can transcribe it for you if you haven't got it.

It lists him as a Porter in 1899, before his medical discharge. No mention of any army connection

Thanks Zoe, e mail received. I wonder if once he was out of the army they moved? I haven't done anything with this line for ages. So it will be good to get back into it.

West Ham doesn't fall under LMA as it was part of Essex then so they may have gone straight there.

Yes quite likely, he had a bit of a sad life in some respects, orphaned by 5 and put in the workhouse while his two younger sisters were put in an orphan home, he wasn't deemed suitable because he was conceived before they had been married

I knew nothing at all on this line when I began. I got the records for the sisters from the George Muller foundation in Bristol and they contained all the letters going between the orphanage and the parish relief quite a story....
