I am very sorry, but the person who mentioned this is no longer with us, so i cant ask her
any details, the time range was either between 1750 to 1800 i think, but am not sure,I
have traced back to about 1827 for John Austin's army records and also his enlistment
entry to the east India Army in 1846 Bengal. It was said that they asked either this 1827
John or his Father John (not sure which as both have the surname austin on marriage cert
of John 1827) to return to england he refused and was supposed to have changed his surname
to Austin (more likley to be the father John)but what is even more confusing is that John
1827 when he married his wife Ellen Murphy and had their first son william frank Austin
william went on to marry Mary Catherine Hanson and they named their first son Frank
osborne Hanson Austin which seems to be the surname Osbourne plus the Hanson's
Hope this explains why i havent a clue ?
