Lt. Creagh was the nephew of Garnet Wolseley, I wonder how he got the appointment as his Aide-de-Camp???

Wonder what Sir Garnet Wolseley would have thought if he knew he was the brother in law of one of Anthony Durnfords cousins, we all are descended from John Creagh and Margaret Archdeacon, my 7th gg.grandparents, AWD's 5th gg grandparents.  Their sons were favourites of King James.
