It took some digging to find you aren't interested in Emily.............why did you put her name as your title?

KathleenBell

KathleenBell Report 5 Mar 2013 17:12

I can't find Patrick with his wife on any census. Do you know what his occupation was? They seemed to move around a lot as one child born India and one born Swiz Canal. Others born Essex and Cornwall.

I see Anna was born in Cornwall. No sign 1881 so probably abroad?
Best bet is to get Patrick's marriage cert, as suggested above.

There are numerous records on the IGI for Patrick Coyne born Ireland, but until you get the marriage cert, and find out his age and father's name, you can't identify the correct one..............assuming it is recorded. of course.

Thank you everyone for all your help and advice.. Patrick Coyne (This one) seems to be an elusive character!
I have submitted a thank you note previously - don't know where it went.

The wife's name on this is Anna Maria:

British Army Service Records 1760-1915 Transcription

First name(s): Patrick
Last name: COYNE
Calculated year of birth: 1847
Parish of birth: Galway
Town of birth: Galway
County of birth: Galway
Age at attestation: 22 years 5 months
Attestation date: 20 January 1869
Attestation corps: Royal Artillery
Attestation soldier number: 2721
Discharge rank:
Discharge corps:
Discharge soldier number:
The National Archives reference: WO97 / 2580 / 29

He served all over so seems likely. There's a load of info so will need time to summarise it.

UPDATED:

Definitely the right chap - married Anna Maria Blight 12 October 1874 in Devonport. Prior to marriage his next of kin had been his mother Ann in Galway.

Before his enlistment he'd been a commercial clerk. It looks like he'd had previous service with the RA, enlisting in Liverpool in 1865.

He was 5' 8" tall, fresh complexion, hazel eyes and black hair.

Served following places
Home 1869 - 1870
Malta 1870 - 1873
Home 1873 - 1875
India 1875 - 1880
Afghanistan 1880 - 1881
India 1881 - 1883
Home 1883 - 1886

Looks like he was discharged in Portsmouth 1886.

William, some of our Irish researchers may be able to help with more info.

I'd suggest you go to your first post and click edit - you can then get back to the heading of the thread and change it to something more relevant to what you're actually looking for.
