NEWBURY WEEKLY NEWS 17th February, 1870

Feb 15, at Dredge's-yard, Bartholomew-street, Newbury, Charles Stone, aged 89, formally sergeant in 2nd Regiment of Dragoon Guards, and was present at the Battle of Waterloo.

A WATERLOO VETERAN. - Today's obituary records the death of Sergt. Stone, who was one of those veterans now rarely to be met with, who were present at the battle of Waterloo. The deceased has lived in Newbury for some years past, and has been in the enjoyment of a pension.

Book 1868, page 025, No. 2596

Anecdote: Every time I research this gentleman I am brought to the baptism record held at All Saints Church, Burbage, as follows: “Charles Corracticus Ostorius Maximillian Gustavus Adolphus Stone (sic) christening date 29 April 1781. Father Charles Stone – a tailor – and mother Jenny”. This name appears in The Curiosities of Puritan Nomenclature” by Charles Wareing Bardsley. This needs more corroboration before it can be attributed to the above but it makes an intriguing story. 

This obituary entry is awaiting verification.
