Footnote

Ex Baldwins 1936.

Jonathan Henshaw, a Spinner by trade, enlisted into the Army on 17 May 1806, being approximately 23 years of age. With the 39th Foot he served in the latter part of the Peninsular War. He appeared before the Board at Kilmainham on 18 August 1821 and was admitted, on account of ‘the reduction of the establishment and impaired constitution’. Clasps confirmed. Sold with copied papers.
