I have moved this site to a blog called Baugh Family Genealogy so that multiple people can edit and add notes.
This page focuses finding the family of Thomas Baugh. He is listed as 22 and born in Birmingham on his enlistment 20 Jan 1797 in the Royal Marines. Under the quota system or quod in place from 1795 to 1815, each county was required to provide a number of sailors for the Royal Navy. Would there have been any incentive to lie about his age, representing himself as either younger or older? Certainly there was no need to lie to enlist, since jails were regularly emptied to provide enough men. However, Thomas quickly became a non-commissioned officer. Was there an age requirement for that? This requires more research.
So our Thomas was probably born in 1774. He was discharged the Royal Marines in 1802, soon after the Treaty of Amiens ended the Second Coalition during the Napoleonic Wars. It is quite likely that Thomas returned to the Marines in 1805 or 1806 when hostilities resumed, and may have been deployed abroad until 1812, as evidenced by the birth years of the children.
