Thanks Ellie.

In August 1804, while stationed in England, a second battalion of the 59th Foot was raised. The 1st Battalion sailed in the following year for the Cape of Good Hope ... From the Cape, the 1st Battalion sailed to India. In November 1810 the battalion took part in the invasion of Mauritius. In the following year they invaded Java in the Dutch East Indies. They remained in Java until 1815, when they returned to India. The unit moved from India to Ceylon in 1817, returning to India in the following year, ...

Born Ceylon abt 1817 could well be correct but the dates are 1821 - 1829 ??

Don't know if it is a 2nd marriage or that of a son.
