Classification: Query
Surnames: Whiting and Burke
After many years of searching I am no nearer to the truth about my ancestor william Whiting. He Joined the RIC in January 1921 and was posted to Westmeath after training on 25th June 1921. He gave his date of birth as 14th August 1883 and he was recruited in Portsmouth, England. His native county was given as Wiltshire/Hampshire. I have ordered many certificates but have not found anyone with that date of birth. I know his service number was 77987 and he was recorded as being a constable and a protestant. There is no record of him after 1922. He supposedly married Mary Burke in Ireland and had a child with her in 1923. She died shortly after the birth and the daughter was raised in a Convent. I believe he was already married with children in England. What happened to William after 1922? Did he return to England to his wife and children ?
