      Note by MHP. My mother remembers seeing George Smith the son in soldiers uniform when she was a very little girl and he but a youth - he was older than she - the story is he was driving a bakers cart and had a smash up when about 17 of age. he was so frightened about this that he ran away and enlisted

      Just thought I'd drop you a line as I found a record in the British Library that confirms that caroline is my 2x gt grandma and her son george thomas smith my gt gpa. He enlisted into the 44th East Essex Regiment in 1867 age 16 and 5 months although he says that he's 17 and 5 months (otherwise he would have needed parental consent and according to Marian Charlottes story on the hougham website he had run away). Her mother would have been 11 then so the story fits nicely.
      all the best
