William EAGLE (senior) Ideas on Regiment

19 May 1828 death of William Eagle age 80 pensioner
which means he was born c1748

we assume William was from Norfolk as in a Norfolk regiment and when Ann re-married he was shown as watchmaker of Norfolk.
Norfolk is very much an EAGLE centre. So
William EAGLE born around 1748 looking for birth in Norfolk

Ann Brand perhaps 1768 Ann Brand baptisms Scotland 1760-1780
A possible is daughter of Thomas Brand and Isabel Wilson except she would be 53 when Mary born.
We need later information on Ann
Note the OPR for 1798 marriage has BRAN and BRANN and then we have BRAND in 1830
As no baptisms for Bran - our Ann must have been a BRAND

William senior dies c1828 and Ann remarries in 1830
