Discharge at own request having completed 21 years service.
In the 1861 Census John Rudd is living with his family at Sampson’s Yard, Brook Street Chatham Kent.
John is aged 42 and is a Chelsea pensioner and a tailor, he was born Grantham, Lincolnshire.
His wife Bridget is age 38 was born Ireland as were his three daughter Mary age 10, Harriett age 7 and Elizabeth age 3.
The Resident Magistrate wrote to the Colonial Secretary on August 15th 1876 requesting relief for Mrs Rudd as she was a deserving woman and suffering from rheumatism and unable to work to support herself- relief she was denied as she had two daughter living at home who took in washing earning one pound per month who should be able to support her. A second request was made on 21 September 1876 as her health had deteriorated and the girls were out at service. It was suggested she enter the poor house or to allow her five shilling a week and the girls to help support her ( SROWA CSR Vol 835/39)
A Bridget Rudd died aged 64 in 1879 making her year of birth 1815 which does not coincide with that on the 1861 census (1823).
