Hello Everyone

My first post here so please forgive if I am in the wrong place!

I have a relative last know in 1881 census at Brompton barracks. Spent years searching worldwide and nothing.

Recently I was advised to look at some records in TNA at kew which are not online. I am a pensioner living in Newcastle upon tyne in ill health so no chance of me getting there.

I wondered if someone might do this for me please?

I will provide the record references I was told to look at and everything else I know about this person and as I said in subject would pay a reasonable fee to cover costs and time


thank you


Elly

Warm welcome to Rootschat. 

Would you like to say who he was and perhaps where he was from and his age?  Another pair (or more!) of eyes may find something missed so far.

How does John Thomas birth reg Bridlington 1859 become, in 1881, plain Thomas born Brenchley Kent?

Only Duggleby record that fits!

I asked GRO to do a search for a birth for Thomas Duggleby or John Thomas Duggleby and all variant spellings registered in Brenchley 1860 and they turned up nothing!

No death record for JT or T between 1871 and 1881.

Duggleby/ Dugelby and other mispselling are so few approx 220 in 1881 census.

And Fits with his Mother, brother & sister being in Kent area.

My assumption was they went with Mother & new hubby after grandmother died

Also I have done a ONS for 30 years on Duggleby and misspells worldwide so can be fairly confident with my educated guess

Should have added hoping any army records may provide proof if this is John Thomas I think it is.
