red mail Hills family 1878 >>>
My grandfather James Lyttle (sometimes spelt incorrectly - sometimes - Little) Hills was born at the camp 15th May 1878. He was sent to South Africa before the turn of the century (1890,s). He joined the Cape Postal service and served as the telegraphist at the siege of Mafeking 217 days in 1899-1900 during the boer war. He married my grandmother Fonetta Martha Gregg (Holmes) from Tredegar in Wales in a town called Cradock (Cape colony) in 1902. He remained in the postal service as a post master at various towns in South Africa for the rest of his life. I am trying to trace any members of the Hills family that might want to contact me.
red mail COTTON Shorncliffe Camp, Kent
My 3 x Great Grandfather, James William Cotton, was born at Shorncliffe on 22/03/1799, parents being John Cotton and Sarah nee Denn(e)y. James was baptised at Cheriton, Kent, but, along with the rest of his family, spent most of his life living in the Chiswick and Fulham areas of Middlesex. It is believed that his father, John, was in the Middlesex Militia at the time of his birth, hence the baptism taking place in Cheriton. Does anyone know about the Middlesex Militia based at Shorncliffe or where I could find out this information? Many thanks.

red mail Shorncliffe camp 1863
I am trying to find my gr grandmothers birth, I only know from 3 census entries she was born Shorncliffe 1863 and from her marriage cert. her father was a soldier regiment unknown. Her birth doesn't appear on the GRO index. Her name was Annie Moore,her father Thomas. Does anyone know the family or how I can find out which regiments were at the camp in 1863?
Seeking anyone that has access to history of Shorncliffe Camp during period of 1861 - 1871 as my Great Great Grandfather was ChiefWarden Military Prison, Barrack, Shorncliffe Camp in 1861. William and his wife Emma and their 2 young children daughter E.S. Tucker and son W. Tucker aged 10yrs and 11yrs resp. lived there and later another son born Ernest F.H. Tucker (Who became my Great Grandfather and later lived in Titchfield )who was a Watchmaker and Jeweller in the area before the family left to live in Hampshire,where William worked at the Military Prison, at Forton. They younger children simply disappear it seems after the 1861 census and I would love to be able to view records of the Camp and check the cemetary in case they had died. Can anyone please help with this inquiry?
TUCKER Shorncliffe Camp Kent
William TUCKER and wife Emma TUCKER together with their two children a son shown as W. Tucker and daughter shown as E. Tucker came to Kent from South Africa where William had been working and had married Emma nee Brookes. They had W & E in Africa in 1850 and 1851, then shown in census 1861 As Barrack, Provost, Connst. Police and Canteen Departments Shorncliffe Camp. William later became Chief warden Military Prison Alverstoke as shown census 1881. William and Emma also had another son Ernest. F.H. TUCKER born 1862 Shorncliffe Kent. I am William and Emma's Great great granddaughter and I am trying to trace Ernests older brother and sister that sadly are only shown on the above records as E.S. (daughter) and W. Tucker son. This is making it very hard to research. Does anyone have any ideas for how to find these relations? I would love to get in touch with their children etc. Trying to reunite the TUCKER family. Look forward to any replies.
red mail BROWN, Henry
I am trying to find information about my g grandfather, Henry Brown who was born September 5, 1858 in Shorncliffe, County of Kent, England. Prior to 1879 he immigrated to Canada and lived in Owen Sound, Ontario; he married Catherine Robertson who was Canadian born. In the 1881 Census for Canada, UK and USA it notes that their Ethnic Race was Irish and his father was Nelson F. Brown and the mother was Elizabeth. Also, the household census, showed that there was a Robert Brown,born abt. 1867, whom I blieve was Henry's brother, and he was possibly born in Canada; I cannot subtantiate that. The 1901 Census for Victoria, B.C., Canada shows that Henry, Catherine and their son, Charles Nelson Brown lived in the same household; Charles was 21 yrs of age. If there is anyone that knew this family when they lived in Shorncliffe, County of Kent, England or Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada, I would deeply appreciate whatever they can share. Thank you, Shirley
