I am a "student" of the 41st Regiment of Foot when they were posted in Canada from 1799-1815.Captain Joseph Barry Glew was first an ensign in the 48th Foot, promoted to Lt. and transferred to 40th Foot.Transferred to 53rd Foot and fought with them at Douro, Talavera and the retreat of Badajos in the Peninsular War against Napolean.Promoted to Captain and assigned to the 41st Foot, arriving in Canada in the spring of 1813. Promoted to Brevet Major June 10,1815.
Fought with distinction at the Battle of Lundy's Lane and Fort Erie, where he was wounded.
Looking at the other "Glew" postings I see some references to York so I would suspect that is where he is from as he later transferred to the York Chassaurs.Died in 1838 at age 55.
Would love any biographical information as well as where he was from and where he died.Would especially love to find out if there is a likeness of him anywhere.Would also like to known where he was wounded at Fort Erie.I am working on a book of the 41st and am a descendant of this Regiment myself.
