|John S. Conder of the 14th King's Hussars is pictured with his servant. This image when closely examined is shown
to be a copy of another older image that was taken in India c. 1881 while the 14th Hussars where stationed in
Secunderabad. On the reverse of the image is a period ink inscription that reads : "John S. Conder son of John &
Louisa. Died 1890. Aged 35 years".
While I have been unable to turn up the service records for this man he seems to be the same man who is listed in
the 1871 Census for Stepney, London. The census lists John S. Conder the son of John and Louisa Conder , 16
years old and by profession or occupation a "Traveller". A 19 January, 1880 marriage record for Christ Church,
Spitalfields, Tower Hamlets for John Simpson Conder, age 25, the son of John Conder marrying Harriett Potter age
24 the daughter of Thomas Haynes Potter. This indicates that Conder married just prior to deploying to India. The
marriage register also lists Conder's trade/profession as a "Traveller".
