William Postlethwaite
By 1823 my great-great grandfather, William Postlethwaite, was living in Brighton Sussex, where my great-grandfather was born in 1825. My mother believed William's side of the family had originated in the Ulverston area. In Brighton his occupationwas given as a 'hairdresser' though the family knows him to have later been in the Army (Indian?) and to have been lost at sea en route, resulting in my great-grandfather's being educated at the Duke of York's Military School in London, where the family later settled. Can anybody shed any light on any of these strands, please?
