Armed Forces / 85th Regiment in Fulwood 1851 census
« on: Thursday 01 April 21 03:12 BST (UK)  »
I have a 3rd great grandfather, who is showing on the 1851 Census, for Fulwood, Lancashire and listed as Soldier 85th Regiment.
He had a daughter age one yr, who was born in Ireland as was he and his wife.
I am trying to find out where the 85th went to after 1851, and the daughter is listed with deceased parents when she came out by ship in 1866.
Did men sign up for short periods, or did the Regiment  move around.
I cannot find any mention of the regiment in the 1861 census.
Any suggestions or pointers would be gratefully accepted.
Regards Karen
