Henry Richards

Susan COLLIS married Henry RICHARDS who was from St Brides, London, Middlesex, according to his Army PayBook.

Henry was a soldier, joined the 60th Rifles in about January/February 1856, at the age of about 19, and spent most of the next 10 years in India. He returned to UK in October 1866 and re-enlisted, went back to India in September 1868 and returned to UK in December 1872.

He married, and was discharged from the army in about July 1875.

The 60th Rifles' home base was Peninsula Barracks Winchester - very close to Staple Gardens, and about half a mile north of St Cross.

A Little History

Travelling the two miles north from Twyford to Winchester, the next parish is St Cross, its abbey being also the parish church for St Faith - the latter's church was destroyed in the 16th century.
Next is the parish of St Thomas* with what was the garrison church for the Peninsula Barracks (now a museum and private housing), which themselves were just west.
Continuing north is Staple Gardens (the site of the medieval wool market) also very close to the barracks... probably why the Collis girls married soldiers.
William Collis was almost certainly a navigator (navvy) travelling around the country building railways, thus his children were born in different places.
* This church was used as the Hampshire Record Office until about 1990.
