Thomas Begby/Clara Begby
« on: Wednesday 13 January 21 22:53 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone,

I've just discovered that my 4x Great-grandmother was born in South Africa in around 1814. Her father is listed as Thomas Begby (Bugby?) on her marriage certificate in 1847 (London) and was a soldier by occupation, but deceased by the time she married. She married Henry Roberts.

I've looked but can't seem to pin him down. I'd love to know his regiment and any possible info on his daughter Clara's mother. If anyone could help I'd be very grateful. Thanks!
