Hi Cathy,
This snippet u posted regarding military "Pursers", could you tell me if there was any more information, as I believe the George who enrolled in 1803 was my 4 times Great grandfather.
He married in 1802 and his first born was not until 1809 and I wondered why so perhaps this is why? Was it normal to serve for a certain length of time say 5 or 7 years like an apprentice? Where can I find out more regarding his service record? Was the National defense the militia , artillery or some other form of service? I have not looked at any war type records before other than my grandfathers WW2 service book which my aunty in Wales has.
Thanks Muchly,
In Pursuit of the Past and Purser's
Moments From Margaret
