Thanks Jimmy -- interestingly I suspect this was a bigamous marriage -- later info implies the military still believed Amy ( Amelia) was his wife when he died and all census for Sibella from 1881 have her living with her father and stating herself as single.

1857 India to Amelia Liberty -- think I found it on FMP -- where I found a reference to his pension rights following his death -- in favour of Mrs Amelia Cameron -- something funny was definitely going on.
