Hi folks.

There's been many a thread for this chap, so with time and more records being a available now, I'll enquire again.:rolleyes:

His birth was registered as Aaron Moore, born 1st Dec 1851 Chatham Barracks., and also in the Army baptism Registry Book, as Jacob Aaron Moore. Baptised, 28th Dec 1851.

Father Jacob Aaron Moore, mother Rebecca Brown.

In 1861 census, he is with father and stepmother, Mary Ann Moore(nee.Nelson).

1871 Census, he is in the Wellington Barracks in Bury, Lancs. Shown as unmarried. 100 regt of.... (Foot, I would think).
In Barracks with 5th Dragoon Guards.

But he married Jane Elizabeth Williams, 9th Oct 1870 @ Salford Parish Church. Occ. Soldier.

Rebecca Moore. 1874. Salford. Father's Occ. Joiner.
Jacob Moore. 1876 -1879. Salford. ------ditto------
Walter Moore. 1876. Salford. -------------ditto------

So, with all that, is there any Army records for him.:confused:



Taken from Wikipedia.

'The return of the 100th Regiment to the United Kingdom occurred on October 31, 1868, with 51 sergeants, 34 corporals, 15 drummers, 431 privates and 26 officers. The next home for the Regiment was Scotland where they arrived in Glasgow on November 12. They were quartered at Gallowgate Barracks with detachments at Paisley & Ayr. There they stayed until September 9, 1869, whence they departed for Manchester, England, and Salford Barracks. Detachments were sent to Ashton, Bury & Burnley.'

'With various disputes taking place across Europe, the Regiment returned for refresher training to Aldershot in June 1871. Army maneuvers occupied most of the time and in June 1873 the Regiment moved to Portsmouth. In 1873 as part of the army overhaul the Regiment was allocated a new headquarters in Birr, Ireland (near Limerick) along with the 109th as part of the 67th Brigade and so in May 1874 the Regiment moved to Ireland to Richmond Barracks, Dublin and began their association with Ireland. It was during this period that an earlier controversy was settled with the formal association of a former 100th, the Prince Regent's County of Dublin Regiment. In 1875 it was considered the successor to the 100th Regiment of Foot (Prince Regent's County of Dublin Regiment) The former 100th Regiment had served in Canada during the War of 1812 against the United States and in 1875 the succeeding Regiment was authorized to carry the Battle Honour "Niagara". The Regiment was barracked at various Irish establishments then in June 1876, came the return to England and Aldershot. In 1877 the Regiment prepared to move to India embarking on October 5, 1877.'
