WINK
I am searching for the ancestors of Alexander Wink of the Royal Artillery who died in Gibraltar in 1804 leaving a wife and small children. Alexander was married to a Jane. Their marriage has not been identified. After being widowed Mrs Jane Wink married a Richardson and had more children with him. The Wink descendants remained on Gibraltar though some did end up across the globe in England, the US and further. The Wink name seems to be concentrated around Forres and Elgin so I am searching for a family whose Alexander disappeared into the army. A military researcher had calculated he would have enlisted circa 1796. Carolyn
