- Confirmed as leaving Australia
CHARLES BRIGDEN also enlisted in June 1842 but did not settle
- I further note that his name is on
another page in your records and thought it was worthy of mention that
both brothers must have served in Australia but I have no further details
on Charles, except that he
- spent a lot of time in
Ireland (where his six
children were born) and listed his occupation as drummer in the 58th
Regiment at Nether Hallam,
the 1861 English Census.
Men listed as deserting from the Regiment
These men have been
recorded as deserting from the Regiment in which they
served. There is more than a strong possibilty these men
eventually settled. We have included them as they
recieved a description etc. and it may be of help to
their descendants.Today we understand why these men
deserted, many were treated worse than the convicts were.
