Some suggestions have already been made on another forum: http://sussexhistoryforum.co.uk/index.php?action=printpage;topic=18987.0

The 1901 census lists 3 soldiers at Burntwick Barracks: Arthur Elwin from Norwich, Henry Wells from New York and Charles Horton from Ashford in Kent, all Royal Artillery.
