William James of 50th Foot Regimental Number 1410
« on: Friday 02 April 21 07:16 BST (UK) »
Hi RootsChat members, can anyone advise me if and perhaps how I could access details of the following. I am trying to establish the parentage of William and was hoping that there may be a clue in these records. His place of Birth is given in various Censuses as Great Clacton, Bristol and Newport Monmouthshire.

Many Thanks
