Hi ,
My grandfather was Thomas Morfey he changed his name to Smith  when he absconded from the army to join the navy ,I have no army or Navy records for him ,I never met him as he died before I was born but my older brother Fred knew him and my mother nursed him until his death at our house in Playden .

I have my family tree on Ancestry which you could look at.
