History & Achievements :

Thomas married to Margaret Maloney left Sydney with the 77th Regiment and sailed to India, together with 3 sons (a newspaper cutting from Sydney stating a Margaret Usher sailed with 3 masters (boy children?) Their daughter died in Australia aged about 3. Thomas Usher left the army in 1868(according to his army records t from Find my Past) and he returned to Plymouth, England, and became a

licensed victualler. His first wife Margaret Maloney may have died in India in about 1863. Thomas possibly remarried soon after re arriving in Plymouth in 1868 to an Eliza Jane Leer. He died in Plymouth in 1881 but from 1868 - 1881 he was listed as Thomas Mullins Usher. , We have no idea at all where the Mullins name comes from possibly adopted in memory of a fallen comrade in the 77th three Mullins in the 77th only two returnde to England. There is no other document that reflects the name Mullins until a marriage was found from a Thomas Usher living as a Licenced Victualler in Plymouth.
