Their 2 sons were drummers in the 63rd Regiment.
One, Stephen ended up in India where he died. The other Nova Scotia but returned to England via Ireland.
I have been unable to get to the enumerators notes for The Tower on the 1841 Census to find the house or building where Louisa lived. It could be still standing today.
Louisa was a servant in a household of 3 independent ladies !.
The previous household was that of The Keeper of the Keys to Her Majestyís Jewel House. I am assuming that the 3 ladies may have had something to with the Jewel House. However they must have just had some PULL to be able to live in the Tower. Queen Victoria would have only been Queen for about 4 years.
The Jewel House was moved, rebuilt in around 1845, possibly as new Barracks were being built.
