My Scottish GGGrandfather Alexander SINCLAIR (b. 1812, Glasgow) died sometime between the 1851 and 1861 Census records. In 1851 Census he was staying with his mother-in-law Janet STEVENSON in Dalmeny, Queensferry, near Edinburgh, and his occupation was listed as "Type Founder". However, on his children's marriage certificates (they all married after the 1861 Census) his occupation was given variously as Doctor, Surgeon, Army Surgeon, and Surgeon, Medical Staff Corp and I am wondering if he was a casualty of the Crimean War?
Can anyone help me please, or suggest where I might look?
Note that I live in New Zealand and cannot myself visit local Scottish or English repositories.
