    History & Achievements :

    In 1805, and signed up at age 18 with the 17th Foot, (date: June 20, 1823) served in Australia in the 1830's. He married( ) likely in Australia, and sired three children, of which John Allan is my great great grandfather.    John Allan was born in Sydney on the 12th of January 1835. His mother Margaret died while he was a child, (details unknown). Subsequently, Mathew seemed to move on with the Regiment to the East Indies. On October 28, 1845, Mathew was discharged from the army at Chatham, England. John Allan his son,  migrated to Canada in 1851, A brother Thomas and a sister Mary show up in the records as Mathew's other children.   Except for a sojourn in Canada, Mary returned to Australia, and her surname O'Neill is noted. Little is known of Thomas.   The retired Sgt. Mathew Howard married  some time after the death of Margaret. He sired two sons from that marriage, Mathew and Edward.   We have no record of his death. Somehow Liverpool is associated with such.
