    History & Achievements :

     Pte 3535 40th 20yrs, 5'7", fresh complexion, dark brown hair, grey eyes; enlisted 27.11.1854, Plymouth; labourer; born Stoke St Gregory, Somerset; deserted at Castlemaine on 4.11.1856.

     I also have every belief that he changed his name to Frederick Augustus LANGDON (whether it be legally or not, I don't know) by the time his first child was born at Castlemaine in 1860  All my records show his name as Frederick LANGDON, even when he married in 1861 at Maldon.  I have the appropriate certificates from Births, Deaths & Marriages to prove these
