This is probably a long shot..... (but may be worth eliminating)

Searching for Benjamin Jordan, Churchdown Glos.....

Up comes on Google Books

.... copied from the Sheriffs Books..... The Poll at the Election of a ....... (dated 1811)

is listed Benjamin JORDAN - residence: Barnwood, land his own.....

Even by road, Barnwood is about 3.2. miles from Churchdown - and even quicker as the crow flies.....


Looking at National Archives, (Google A2a) and dated 1810 is

Benjamin JORDAN, born Barnwood, Gloucestershire. Attestation papers to serve in the Royal Marines. Attestation papers to serve in the Royal Marines at Chatham 1810 (when aged 23) Discharged (discharge date not given)....


The only record on the Forest of Dean site, is a baptism at Eastington, 22 April 1816

of a George JORDAN - parents: Benjamin (occupation Soldier) residence : Eastington and mother's name: Hannah.
