Hi Larry and Coreen
I am researching Michael Griffin (who came to Australia as a solider in the third fleet) and his family who settled in early sydney. In particular I am interested in two sons Nathaniel (aka Matthew) and Thomas Griffin. They joined the army in Sydney as drummers and then privates. The last record I found for Nathaniel shows that he was transferred to the 73rd in 1813 prior to their departure to Ceylon. The record for Thomas shows returned to England.
I would much appreciate it if you are still doing it, to look up the Early British Ceylon Military Records for Nathaniel and Thomas Griffin.
Thanks very much.
