My gr gr grandmother Anna PRATT was married in Vic. Australia in 1866. She gave her parents as John PRATT and Ellen RYAN, her father's occ. as Barracks Master.
I have found a record of a John PRATT as a Barracks Sergeant in Clare Castle,Co. Clare, which also ties in with the family oral history, obviously exaggerated. However, Anna gave her birthplace as Limerick.
Where can I find military records for Clare Castle, which I now understand is a town, not a castle, that might throw some light on this?
Hope someone can help
