Shared note

CHARLES BROCK He was born in 1790, in or near the town of Fermanagh. On 27 Dec. 1808, he enlisted in the 88th Regt. of Foot, and served in the British army for 22 years, 119 days. His service included one year in France, one year in America, five years in the Peninsula throughout the Peninsular War, and 10 years, 10 months in the Ionian Island He was described as of very good character, efficient and distinguished in the field against the enemy. He had been in the battles of Fuentes de onor Sabugal, Cuidad Rodrigo, Badagos, Salamanca, Victoria, Pyrenees, "the nive nivitle others", and Tolouse. At the storming of Cuidad Rodrigo, he volunteered and went on forlorn hope. At Badagos, he was wounded in three places. Being unfit for further service, he was discharged in England, in 1832, granted a pension, and returned to Ireland. Eight years later, he married. Three months after their marriage, the couple immigrated to Canada and settled in the town of London. There, in August 1841, Charles petitioned for a land grant; this was turned down on the grounds that pensioners were no longer entitled to such grants. He died, in London, on 14 Feb. 1849, and was survived by his wife.
