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.

Children;
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:

Steve.:)

PS.:rolleyes::biggrin:

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.'

the record i posted was from Findmypast. Not sure if the national archives reference will lead to you finding anything further. I think the full details are in the transcription done by FMP.

Just looked on the NA site,,,the record is taken from the 100th foot muster book for 1871. The records are not generally online. Findmypast have the records for 1871. If you wanted to trace Jacob back or forward in the muster books,,,you would have to visit Kew.Ordering and viewing options

Can't help with his army record but I followed his wife through the censuses. 1891 she is head of household, married with her 2 children.
1901 she is married, working as a housekeeper for a widower at Stockton Heath.
1911 she is still a housekeeper for the widower but now she is a widow and she is actually the sister in law of the widower.
Someone has made corrections to her details on the 1911 transcription on ancestry, may be worth contacting them to see if they know anything about Jacob?
Also it looks as if Jacob must have died 1901 - 1911. Can't find a death to suit in England but a Jacob Moore died in Ballymena, Ireland, 1904. May be he stayed in Ireland when he left the army ? Age was 58 though so a bit old really.
That's about it !

Yes, Jane Elizabeth Moore, is with her sisters husband in 1901 & 1911. And yes, I've never been able to pin point his death for sure, so that remains open.
As he was away from home all his married life in the census, it's hard to know where he ended up, with any certainty. So all that he left behind is accounted for, that is his family.
Jane Elizabeth Moore died in 1926, her son Walter was informant. widow of Jacob Aaron Moore. Deceased, master carpenter. Also deceased on my Grandmother marriage cert in 1896, and deceased on Walter Moore's marriage in 1895. Or was he alive in 1901, according to Jane Moore's, marital status.

Anyway, I've ordered the records, as mentioned here, for £8.24, and sent via email.:)

Thanks folks.
