|There were THREE privates in the 96th Regiment in Hobart, VDL between 1841 and 1849 with the name John Brown: Regimental # 575, 1804, 1858. One of them has occassionally been found with the second given name ‘Loring’ in the Army Musters. This has led to some confusion as to which of these men took his discharge in Western Australia. The Musters have been examined the the following information verified:
Private John Brown #575 did not serve in the Swan River Colony detachment from February 1847 to May 1849 [WO12-9620], He was not serving in India (Lahore) in 1st Quarter 1851 [WO12- 9625].
Currently personal information relating to this man … including his life in Western Australia after his discharge is a ‘work in progress’. There are 20 marriages, 20 deaths and 40 fathers of children for men named John Brown within likely timeframes. I am hoping that publishing his Army details will bring me some leads to his personal life.
