ChallengeAZ 2017—A Bangle Dictionary | H for Hogan

William Hogan was a private of the British 49th Regiment of Foot stationed in Sorel. He married Mary Bangle (daughter of John; granddaughter of Adam) in January 1810 in the same town. According to the Catholic church records, they had three children (1810; 1811; 1815). William Hogan deserted his regiment during the course of 1810. In 1811, he was sentenced to be deported to the Leeward Islands for the next seven years. Was he really the father of Pierre, the third child? Has he returned to Sorel? Or was Mary left behind with the children? Sleuthing work is needed quickly!
