Ok, have had a chance to look at this information and check out Williams family on the census - which throws up another conundrum..
If Pte (William) George enlisted in 1885, aged 24yr 6mnth - that gives us his birthdate being around April 1861.
Census 1861 shows the following:-
Henry George age 38
Frances - wife age 36
Charles age 14 Alfred age 12 Frederick age 10 WILLIAM age 8 Stephen age 5 Keziah age 7 and WALTER age 1mnth.
Census 1881 gives us WALTER age 21, in the Royal Victoria Hospital, Netley, Hampshire - an 'invalid' while WILLIAM appears to be an Ag Lab in Throwley kent
Census 1891 gives us WILLIAM age 30, at Canterbury Barracks, a private in the East Kent regiment. but if this IS WILLIAM, then he should be older than 30 (38)- WALTER would have beeen 30 in 1891
William?? Walter??? Can anyone throw any light on it?
