Thomas Vick missing from census

Postby jange@ » Tue May 23, 2017 10:18 pm

I can't find Thomas Vick born 1860 in Cheltenham on the 1881 census.
His mother Ann shows on an 1881 census with her 2 youngest children still in Cheltenham and when Thomas married Elizabeth Parsons at Haverstock Hill, London in 1888 he was noted as A Traveller

Any ideas?
Thanks

Have you tried looking at army service records?

Hi
He may have added a couple of years to his age, perhaps.
Thomas Vick, age 18, Laborer, born Cheltenham, enlisted 28th Foot, December 1876. Regimental number 679.
He was in India from September 1878 to March 1883
Discharged at the end of 1888, he is then in the Army Reserve until 1892.
Next of kin given as father Thomas, mother Ann, brothers Peter, Robert, Alfred, sister Ellen.
Ian

Thanks Ianbee that looks really hopeful. Where could I see that record? (neither Ancestry or Genealogist that I'm subscribed to bring it up)
Many thanks

FMP is the place for pre-WW1 army records. Ancestry only has a few odds and ends for that period.
