Hi, my 3xGt grandfather DAVID SIMPSON was at Waterloo and the person I believe to be my relative
was in Bull's Troop but as yet I have no confirmation that this is the right person.

As you can read from my post my information is from a book written by T H Mullin which gives me info on my 4xGt Grandfather who was also David Simpson and also all the generations to the present  date.

I would be very interested if any further info comes to light.

Sorry I can not add anything further.

Regards.

Hi,
I have just found your posting, I am very interested to find out more about my GGG Grandfather Henry Rufey b. 1777 Donnington, Berkshire.   He married Phebe Burgess in 1819, when he was 41 years of age.    Have just had a hint placed on Ancestry for a Henry Rufey, his birthplace indicated as Donnelton, Berkshire and also indicating that he was discharged from the 35th Regiment of Foot in 1818, after serving 23 years in this Regiment.   According to these records, he enlisted in 1795 with the 82nd Regiment of Foot at Gibraltar.     
I am trying to find more information on his service.   Am pretty sure that this is our man, the birth year and Berkshire area appears to coincide, and being discharged in 1818, marrying next year.
So if you can assist me with any information on where his service may have been, would really appreciate that.

Hi! I believe I am a relation of Thomas Sheldon also, being a direct descendant of his father's brother George. Would you be prepared to share some info? I have been to Waterloo as a re-enactor so it would be amazing to see his record.

Thanks.
