Daniel Baker enlisted in 1814, giving his profession as a shoemaker. At Waterloo he served in the 11th Light Dragoons - Jenkin's Troop. Following Waterloo the regiment was send to India and he died at Cawnpore on 12th September 1826. His will left £10 16s 1½d (a considerable sum) to his father, Benjamin, at Rushden.
John Baker had enlisted three years earlier in 1811. At Waterloo he served in the 40th Foot - Number 7 Company. The combined campaigning experiences of this hardened bunch of veterans can be measured by the fact that, despite only 20 of the men living to claim their Peninsula medals, a total of 113 clasps were issued to men from this company. John Baker served in the Peninsula and North America. At Waterloo he was hit by a musket ball just to the side of his right eye, which permanently impaired his vision. Despite this he remained in the regiment until 1826 when he was finally discharged aged 33, his conduct being listed as "particularly good."
Presumably these two men were brothers or cousins.
Note: Daniel was born 1794 son of Benjamin, John was born 1795 son of William, and both were baptised at St Mary's Church.
