Hello from pavonia

Postby pavonia » January 5th, 2018, 5:34 pm

Hello Members,

I am interested in family history & social history; I recently found that a direct ancestor William John Trow[u]sdale born ca 1785 in GIlling, Helmsley, Yorkshire was in the 2nd Life Guards 1804 - 1814 before being discharged to pension. I have posted a query about him on the Individual Soldiers board.

I am keen to learn the places he may have fought, the life he may have led while in the army and the history of the times.
