Children of Sarah (?) and Thomas Drinkwater

Richmond Alexander Darnley

ID# 8519, b. April 1837, d. 5 January 1907
Richmond Alexander Darnley was also recorded as Alexander Darnley.
He was also recorded as Richard Darnley.
He was also recorded as Dearnaley - (spelling not found but added for indexing.)

Note:

Richmond's origins are currently unknown, but if we assume a birth place outside of England, the most likely is India.

There are currently two parentage possibilities:
1. There is an Alfred Darnley who died in 1841 in India, aged 24. see Alfred Darnley
2. Joseph & Ellen Dearnally, known to be in India in 1849. see Joseph Dearnally

The first one seems the most likely given Richmond's education & the fact that he named his first son Alfred. However, no marriage has been found for Alfred Darnley.


Birth:
Richmond Alexander Darnley was born in April 1837
Raised at a school* in Lambourn, Berkshire, but perhaps born out of the country.

1871 - Lambourne, Berkshire
1871 - Bedford, Bedfordshire
1881-1901 - Lambourne, Berkshire

*'There is a Gents school in Oxford Street which is run by Alexander Gearing with a total of 17 boys borders, ages ranging from 4yrs to 14.'
