Re: Further to Lost at Sea a Q for Barry
Posted by Allan Campbell on January 10, 2018, 5:05 pm, in reply to "Re: Lost at Sea"
Barry - Any idea where I could find the details and sailing dates of the ship or ships that transported the 63 rd Regiment to India in about 1869 - 1872 ish.
It may well have sailed from a port near Fermoy, Co. Cork in Ireland. My wife’s grandmother would have been on it/ them.
She returned to the U.K. between 1878 & 1881 Census to Portsmouth area with men of the Perthshire Regiment her mother having remarried in India in 1875.
Her father was a drummer in the 63rd. Her fathers brother was also a drummer in the 63rd but he was sent to Nova Scotia, Canada. Different divisions of the same regiment.
