10th Royal Hussars.
« on: Tuesday 22 March 11 13:51 GMT (UK) »
I've seen a number of inquiries regarding the whereabouts of the 10th in the 1860's.

They where, in fact, stationed in Ireland. Both in Belfast & Dublin.

You would need to visit the Nat. Archives @ Kew and examine the Muster Register for more info.


Cheers.

Hi everyone.

New to this and looking for some help please.

I am related to a Daniel Benbow who is shown in the 1861 census as with the 10th Royal Hussars stationed in Ipswich. I believe I have a studio portrait photo of him in Gibraltar. I assume that Gib was a stopover point but would like to know the year.  I am trying to find out what happened to him really. I am in possession of some research conducted in 2001 which suggests that he died on 30/05/1883 in Muttra but I do not know how reliable that is.

Any thoughts/input at all would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Kevin

The 10th Royal Hussars sailed for India on the troopship Jumna on 10 January 1873 and reached Malta on 20 January. I haven't found a record of a stopover at Gibraltar but I have seen references to such a stop on previous voyages.

Hi Kevin, and welcome to RootsChat

I am in possession of some research conducted in 2001 which suggests that he died on 30/05/1883 in Muttra but I do not know how reliable that is.

The chaplain’s returns from Bengal show that Daniel Benbow, Sergeant in the 10th Royal Hussars, died of sunstroke on 30 May 1873 and was buried at Muttra on 31 May 1873.

To locate him in earlier years and construct his military career, you will probably need to look at the musters in the National Archives (series WO 12) – they’re not online.
