Marriage in 1864 of Thomas Fennell to Mary Ann Barrett possibly not in England If Thomas was still a soldier in 18th Foot.

This is all I can find so far re deployments.

In 1857 the Regiment raised a 2nd Battalion again, this time out of volunteers from Ireland’s militia regiments. That year also saw the 1st Battalion return to India where it stayed for all but nine of the following 27 years
Birth for daughter Eliza abt 1868 not found although 1871 census has her aged 4 and born Weymouth, Dorset.

Arrived 29 Sep 1883 - Reel 2494
FENNELL Thomas 45 Shoe Maker - H. Wilcox by order of A G ? - Wilts - Wesl.
Mary Anne 39 - .. ? Somerset

I have no idea what that 'Wilcox' bit means.

I can't find a death for Eliza Barrett, aged 48 in 1861.
