George Tryon (1783 or 1785 to 1842) was (according to his son's marriage certificate) a British Army officer. He had at least three children by Peachey Chambers [Chambers-4122]: Clara born 1827, George born 1830 in London, and Charles Edward born 1836 London. I have traced birth/baptism records for the two sons, and they were originally given the name Chambers, with Tryon as a middle name. George, the father, married Peachey Chambers, their mother, in the late Spring or early Summer of 1842 in Brighton, Sussex, and was buried there on June 1, 1842, meaning he'd married her virtually on his deathbed. Later the children used the name Tryon rather than Chambers. My assumption was that Peachey Chambers was George Tryon's mistress, and that he may have "made an honest woman of her" at the very end of his life. Question: would that automatically have legitimated his children? Peachey had another daughter born in 1845, but as George was three years buried presumably she wasn't his, but took the name Tryon by virtue of being born illegitimately to the Widow Tryon. Question: Any thoughts on that? Does it seem a reasonable assumption? Finally, the parentage of father George [Tryon-1918]. I believe he was either the George Tryon baptized in Scotland in 1783 or George Tryon [Tryon-2014], the son of another George Tryon and his wife Elizabeth Wingfield. The 1783 record I have is for a birth/baptism in Scotland and the second, 1785, record is for a baptism near the family seat at Cottingham, Northamptonshire, England. As grandfather George was also a British Army officer, it's possible he moved about, including into Scotland briefly. Question: Are the 1783 Scottish and 1785 English records referring to the same child? Any help or insight anyone can give would be gratefully received!
