  • Name Spence, George  [1
    Born 1791  Arbuthnot, Kincardine, Scotland Find all individuals with events at this location  [2, 3, 4
    • His military discharge papers suggest a birthdate of late in 1793, as his age on 31 March however the most likely birth record shows him as being baptised in late 1791. I have therefore assumed that he was born in 1791.
