I posted #2 then moved on. :2fun:

Thanks. I didn't have that one either.

Death
5841/1897 RAMSAY FREDERICK A - JOHN S - MARY A - PADDINGTON

I don't think the 20th Reg of Foot arrived in NSW in 1857.

Frederick might even be in the 1851 census in England.

name: Frederick Ramsay
age: 14
gender: M
birthplace: East Indies (British Subject)
relationship to head of household: Pupil
record type: Household

Thanks gibbo. :)

As I suspected. He didn't arrive with the 20th because they didn't arrive in 1857. He was not with them long then.

The trees don't have a death for Kate. She was matron at the various gaols - HERE

1883 They moved from Yass Gaol to Albury Gaol. They were at Cockatoo Island in Sydney Harbour too.

Maybe this is the J Ramsay on the passenger list. A brother to Frederick by the looks.

I hope there is more.

Something about when and where he enlisted perhaps. ;)

That might not be the right word since he resigned his commission.

Did his father purchase the commission for him?

The gazettes are full of entries such as "...to be Ensign without purchase..." and "...to be Ensign by purchase..."
