Thank you for your reply Gordon. I have suspected for some time that John the son of William and Ann could possibly be my 2x greatgrandfather.The part that doesn't fit is that their John was born 16th March, 1792. On gg-grandfather's enlistment papers, dated 20 July 1815, his age is shown as 23 Years --"-- Months. On his discharge papers dated 14 April 1841, his age is shown as 48 8/12 years. Ggg-grandfather was an iron monger so if I could findWilliam's occupation was the same then thatwould pretty much confirm they are the same family.
