  1. Question Harry Frazer, Dorset Regiment, c.1885-1899

    I am seeking information on the military career in the Dorset Regiment of my grandfather Harry Frazer, b.1866 in Brighton.

  4. Army Service

    I believe I have found an ancestor in the 1851 census aged 20 who was a private in the army, (possibly the 15th Regiment of Foot - Yorkshire East Riding Regiment), but was living in Bath in 1861, and no longer in the army. In 1851 he was in the District Barracks Sheerness, Kent. Can anyone...

According to family lore they met and were married in Malta when my grandfather Peter Mckie was serving there in the Army. After searching for some years for a Maltese marriage...

  9. Whigs and Tories in 1830-1840

    What were the key differences between the Whigs and Tories during this period? Just trying to understand what type of person would've voted for a Whig. Would he have really been as debauched as a 21st century Liberal ;) I can't remember who came before Queen Victoria! Booger |help|

  11. Thumbs up Evidence on the employment of Children in 1842

    I have had my copy of this CD for some time and can thoroughly recommend it, as Ann has said elsewhere, it is facinating if sometimes depressing reading. It is certainly the other side of the picture, to that given by the pretty Victorian website, also discussed elsewhere. Before I am...
