I am trying to find information on Charles James Robert Brooks ( b. 1836 Maidstone, Kent), and his parents Joshua Brooks b? and Ann Burr. I know Joshua was with the 14th Light Dragoons, and went out (from the Canturbury barracks in Kent) to India. Joshua was in India from 1841 to 1845 , at which time he was discharged. After that I can find no trace of Joshua or his wife Ann. Charles resurfaces in NSW, Australia in 1842. He is widowed and remarries Emily Jane Milton. I cannot find his whereabouts after the birth of their last child in 1885.
