Napoleonic Wars
published by Brian & Pam Airey on Thu, 14/03/2024 - 12:18

I have just been through our archives and found records produced by a former member, David Milner, on regiments, personnel and other records concerning the Napoleonic Wars. The file is too large for this website but I will be happy to do a look up for anyone interested in a particular name.

Brian,

Thanks for this.  My third great grandfather, Joseph Grenter (1784-1864) fought in the Napoleonic Wars.  He was baptised at Muchelney, Somerset, on 16 May 1784, the son of Joseph and Hannah Grinter (sic). I think I found that between 17 April 1805 and 12 January 1813 he was a private in the 1st Battalion 52nd Regiment of Foot.  His surname was spelled various ways, including Granter.  He served in the Peninsula war in Spain and was discharged following a gunshot wound to the arm near Badajos. [Fortunately his injuries didn't prevent him returning to Somerset to Bleadon, Somerset, where he married Jane Palmer and had 10 children.  He died on 23 April 1864 at Bleadon, age 84 years.  if you do happen to find any information in the document from David Milner, I would be interested to hear of it.

Regards and Best wishes

Chris Martin
