    • Like his brother Robert Henry, 'Charles' joined up as a boy, his service beginning on 23 Nov 1880. Again like his brother he had given a date of birth making him a year younger than he actually was, and on his supposed eighteenth birthday signed up for 10 years. Unlike his brother, sadly this was not to be extended as he died before the first 10 year period was up.

    1. [S2] FreeBMD, FreeBMD, ((  http://www.freebmd.org.uk/  )), accessed 6 Sep 2014), Marriage of Selina GOTHAM to Robert OSBORN. (Reliability: 3).
      GRO ref: Gotham, Selina to Osborn, Robert q1 1851 Newton Abbot  RD 10 253 (2 other couples on the same page but from the census it seems clear that Selina married Robert Osborn)
      To make matters confusing:
      In the St. Thomas RD of Exeter in Q1 1850 a Selina CASLEY married one Robert William OSBORNE.
      (GRO ref: Casley, Selina to Osborne, Robert William Q1 1850 St Thomas RD 10 383)
      This couple were of similar ages to the Selina and Robert Osborn on this tree, though with different birthplaces, occupation and children. Despite the differences some have muddled these 2 couples.
