My great great grandfather:
William Gregson Pte. 514 22 Jan 1879
24 Warwicks Regt.

Zulu and Basuto Wars
1st Batn. 24th Foot. Killed in action at Isandhlwana.

Would be interested if anyone has information on what happened to the widows and children. William was married to Mary nee Falvey.

Hi Karen

Welcome to the Forum

This is all the information I have at the moment, but will start looking for further information for you.

Attested on 20th January 1860, aged 20 years. He re-engaged at Malta on 19th December 1867. Wife (Fanny) placed on married establishment on 14th June 1873. Children born circa February 1869, October 1871 and October 1875. Recommended for Long Service and Good Conduct Medal 1st April 1878. His effects were claimed by next of kin. Medal and Clasp ‘1879’. His regimental service number was 514.
As at February 1883 an amount of £24-14-1 was still being held by the Secretary of State for War as being unclaimed by the next of kin.

Hi Karen

After doing a few internet searches, I see that you have been researching William Gregson for many years now. Good to see that you have never given up. Salute

The only things I have come across just make things a little confusing. This is what I have found:

I have found William Gregson listed in the 1861 Census as a Private which would add up with his enlistment off 1860. His age of 21 also matches with a birth date of around 1840.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Now this is where it becomes unclear, His place of birth is given as Derby - Longford.
I have not been able to find a birth registered for him in Derbyshire.

Then I came across the following:
William GREGSON, 21+, bachelor, born in Whaley Bridge, Cheshire, Private, 1st Battalion, 24th Regiment, married 16th January 1867 to, Fanny FALVERY, 21+, spinster, born in Glenmore, the daughter of John and Julia Falvery.

Yet again I was not able to find a birth registered in Cheshire.
There are 10 registered births in 1840 for William Gregson but none match the information I have so far.

I will keep looking and will update this thread if I find anymore information.
