Help!

Can anyone a) read the name (item 31) of the child born to Wm and Elizabeth Green baptised 30 Janary 1733 and b) discover what happened him next please? Apologies if the upload is a bit naff ...


I'm looking for a Daniel Green and Ancestry transcribed this entry as Daniel. However, as others have read it as Parnel and I can't find any other records of Daniel in this area or Parnel anywhere I'm baffled. Any ideas always gratefully received.

I think it's Parnel because the first letter looks more like a "P". The records below might be him:

UK, Royal Hospital Chelsea Pensioner Admissions and Discharges, 1715-1925
Name: Parnell Green
Pension Admission or Examination Age: 50
Birth Year: abt 1733
Birth Place: Wildon
Pension Admission or Examination Date: 31 Mar 1783
Regiment: 7 Foot

UK, Royal Hospital, Chelsea: Regimental Registers of Pensioners, 1713-1882
Name: Parnell Green
Birth Year: abt 1733
Birth Place: Weldon
Regiment: 7th Regiment of Foot
Residence Date: 31 Mar 1783
Document Type: Regimental Registers of Pensioners

That certainly looks like him, thank you! I can cross him off my list of possibles now. How/where did you find him?

Both records on Ancestry. One is a Fold3 record and the other has an image you can view. No military record for him on FMP that I can see.

I never thought to look further than the BMDs so that's a lesson learned. Thank you again. Now on to the rest of my list of possibles... :lol:

According to the Regimental Register of Pensioners image, Parnell is recorded as "deaf" and served 30 years with the 7th Reg. He was a woolcomber. The 7th (Royal Fusiliers) were sent to Canada in 1773. In 1780 they took part in the capture of Charleston. They returned to England in 1783. So if Parnell was with the 7th in North America, he would have been involved in the American War of Independence,

Wow, that’s interesting. Why would he be a woolcomber if he was a career soldier - or was that his job after retirement? And deaf - presumably that came in old age. Such a shame that he isn’t mine. Military history is something I have no experience of and tend to ignore it but I’m sure there are some great stories to find if only I made the effort. Thanks again.

Do you think the Daniel you're looking for was born around the 1730's? Just wondered, in view of your interest in the entry that turned out to be Parnell, who was baptised 1733. There's a Daniel Green baptism 18/2/1717 in Kent, parents William & Elizabeth, but maybe this is too early?

Hi Sdup27

Thanks for pointing this chappy out - I suspect he is a) too early and b) too far away from where he married, lived and died which is north Buckinghamshire. He married Elizabeth Gibbons at Haversham in 1768 and the record said he was from Little Linford, a hamlet nearby. They lived in Milton Keynes village until his death in 1783. This little bit of Bucks borders Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire so I'm stretching my search in those directions and so far have drawn a blank. Several possibles but all eliminated. Ho hum! But thank you anyway. :)
