  • Notes 
    • from Kenneth Beldon story - "They were married at Llandinio inMontgomershire on 4 Dec 1850. He was 56. witnesses were Andrew JThorndike (his brother, born in 1799), N J Rudd and ROrmesby-Gore of the 43rd regiment together with G Russell and HMLangueville on Isablls side."
    • From Book "Sybil Thorndike" by Russell Thorndike

      "came from sturdy, eccentric grandfathers. Paternally - ageneral, who never saw action, but never retired.
      Born in 1794 and commissioned to the Artillery in the year ofWaterloo, drew full pay to the time of his death in 1875. Ofcourse he never lived to see his granddaughter as he was sixtywhen our fathr was born but the pictures of his rolled whiskersmade an early impression on her mind, and her great joy as ababy was to play with his Tragacanth pots and duelling pistols,which were kept in the late General's travelling bureau whichserved for a chest of drawers in our father's dressing room.(Tragacanth was a gum-arabic of sorts and used for curlingwhiskers). Our g'f made his own pots out of papier mache hich helacquered.

      The General's first marriage was blest with a daughter and a sonof whom he was very fond but he was not so blest in his wife, avery beautiful Faunce who no doubt found him too much of amartinet and went her own way till the marriage was annulled.

      Later the general married again one of the Russells who outlivedhim with three children. With the exception of the Fauncedivorce which was never alluded to as the fmaily did not approveof divorce the General's household was just waht it whould havebeen everything solid, stolid and respectably Victorian......taught all his children to draw, mount and frame their own copyof the family pedigree....

      According to Ken Beldon - from cadet to Lt. General. WestIndies Tour 1846 - 1850.
      birth date shown is date of baptism
