Just a thought, would the Register of Recruits for the HEIC have records
that early, as that is where I found some info on my John Lynch 1848.
Maybe these may help Marion! Films of these were held at the LDS at North
Parramatta, although that was some time ago.
Google Books has "A List of the Officers of the Army, Ordnance and Medical
Departments, serving under the Presidency of Fort St. George: with an Index,
published 1st April 1822. Under "Ordnance Officers" (page 114) T. Clarke is
shown as an Assistant Deputy Commissary appointed 5th June 1821 and
stationed at Gooty.
Prior to this appointment and since 31st May 1820 he had been a Conductor at
the ordnance arsenal at Fort St. George (Madras), being moved there from
Bangalore (Asiatic Journal January 1821 page 184). He had been appointed
Conductor at Bangalore on 20th November 1805 (The East-India Register and
Directory 1819 page 256).
No age is given on his burial records. The India Office Family History
Search database gives his actual date of death as 7th June 1823.
I am of the opinion that he served in the Madras Presidency Army of the
Honourable East India Company, not the British Army.
