Military Challenge - George Seale

I have taken up Patricia Greber's 11-day challenge of posting about one of my military ancestors every day until November 11th. 

Day 2 of the 11-day Military Challenge


Joined the Canada Militia in Kingston Ontario in 1855 at the age of 18. He was promoted to Lieutenant of the No.3 Company, Kingston on November 21, 1862

Pay List - Volunteer Militia 1866, 43rd Regiment, Carleton, Ontario

Major George Seale, $3.90

George Seale, Major 43rd Batt - Last promotion 14 Dec 1866

Geroge was given permission to retire with his rank of Major on 22 Jan 1870, by Militia General Orders, posted in the Canada Gazette Vol 3, No 30.

George is my 2nd great uncle. When he retired from the militia he worked as a bookkeeper for his brother Thomas' Merchant Tailor business.
