Notes for JOSEPH NORMAN:

The Ships Logs for the Indiaman "Royal George" (L/MAR/B/17L) show that Private Joseph Norman of the 14th Regt. of Foot boarded the ship at Portsmouth on 19th June 1807 with his wife Eleonor bound for Madras. The ships log gives Eleonors age as 22. Captain of the ship was Charles B. Gribble. Also aboard the ship was Private Samuel Brown 14th Regt. of Foot who would later become Eleonors second husband after Josephs death.

For some reason Joseph & Eleonor were transferred the the Indiaman "Windham" on 22nd August 1807 in exchange for Private Willm Gillian and his wife.

The "Windham" arrived in Madras and the troops disembarked November 1807. The troops were quartered at Fort St. George.

At the beginning of 1808 the First Battalion 14th formed part of a small expedition sent to Tranquebar, situated at the mouth of the Cauvery river, in the Carnatic. Tranquebar surrendered to the British 8th February 1808 and the battalion returned and then proceeded to Bengal and was stationed at Fort William for the next eighteen months. During this time at Fort William,  Joseph died.
