THE ADVENTURES OF SERJEANT THOMAS BRICKLEY AND THE FOUNDING OF A FAMILY

Curiosity about family origins and detective work have revealed the truth behind family stories of a distinguished soldier in an earlier generation of the family. This book records much of what can be known about Serjeant Thomas Brickley of the 49th Regiment of Foot, born 1793, who was a highly respected member of his Regiment and, for his times, a world traveller.

His introduction to army life was dramatic, finding himself posted to Canada and facing off against American forces intent on capturing land now within Canada. He particularly distinguished himself in the Battle of Queenston on 13 October 1812, the bicentenary of which decisive battle is celebrated in 2012.

From humble beginnings, he rapidly rose through the ranks to become a Serjeant at the age of nineteen years and, subsequently, a Colour Serjeant.

This is his story. It is also the story, told more briefly, of his family life and some of his descendants through his son, William.
