Description

The Royal Hospital in Chelsea was founded in 1692 to look after wounded and disabled soldiers. While there were some resident pensioners in their red tunics, the majority were out-pensioners although the pensions were administered from the Hospital. The Royal Hospital Kilmainham was established even earlier in 1681 and has records of 20 000 men from 1771-1821 (only ~60% were born in Ireland). Soldiers were eligible for a pension after 12 years of service.
