William Cuthbert 230 Private 97th Regt Location Corfu
Discharge due to being worn out and subject to Dyspnoea on exertion
Pension paid in WA to 30 March 1854 it was reinstated 12th March 1858, at the time there was £67/10/0 owing on his passage-this may have been to the Colony as he would have forfeited the right to have a free passage when he deserted.
In the 1851 Census William Cuthbert is living with his wife Jane and daughters Jane and Herioit.
