"See his petition to Lord Aylmer, 1832. He says that he was a servant to Brock but also mentions that he had been "in Captain Archers Light Company that was killed in Holland."

"He signed up with another unit *Bradshaw's Levy) before transferring to the 49th Regiment of Foot and of course that transfer could have taken place at any time between 1797 and 1817. He may have been involved in fighting to put…"
"This medal was not granted until 1848, having been approved in 1847. Veterans of certain battles had to apply for the medal. It was not granted posthumously. So presumably Lawler was dead by then if he was at Cryslers Farm."

"The King's 8th Regiment was heavily involved in the War of 1812. Unfortunately, I cannot find him listed in the muster rolls of the 1st or 2nd Battalions. It is possible that he either transferred to another regiment before June…"
Thanks for the kind words. You should be aware that there were later incidents of Line Regiments serving as marines on board His Majesty's vessels. During the War of 1812 men of the 41st, 49th and Royal Newfoundland…"
"It must be difficult to keep the records straight! I note that there was also an Edward Lee in the 104th New Brunswick and in the 10th Royal Veteran Battalion, all in Canada at the same time. I wonder if your Edward ever met his…"
