      I have been searching for evidence of the families of officers going to the island. I can't find any newspapers from the 1850 timeframe.

      There is, however, a periodical named Coburn's United Service
      Magazine. It is available online: go to worldcat & then to Hathi Trust for access. There are lots of copies about 1830 to 1890. Each one has 4 months bound together.

      They have BMD information of both HEIC & royal army officers. I noticed some occurances from St. Helena. There is search capability. It is probably not complete, but it is all I have found.
