Regiments sent to guard Napoleon on St Helena & Mr. Bessie SEFTON, Guard of Nap
- Hi fellow listers,
When searching for a link to the East India Company Regiments on St.
Helena, I found the link below in the UK National Archives. The web
page gives a brief synopsis of the Regiments that arrived on St.
Helena, at the beginning and during Bonaparte's exile. The
information comes from "A St Helena Who's Who" by Arnold Chaplin.
Hope this is helpful to some of you!
Additionally, I am also very interested in anyone who has information
re a (Mr.) Bessie SEFTON, who immigrated ? to Dungog, NSW, Australia,
where he died in 1886. In his obit he claims to have been a Guard of
Napoleon on St. Helena. His parents were George and Annie SEFTON,
and a birth place or age is not given. I am curious if this man had
ties with my SEFTON ancestors on St. Helena.
Thank you for any assist!
