16 Feb | News,

Two datasets listing East India Company Army Recruits transcribed from returns made by Dublin district recruiting officers 1843-50 have been uploaded to the FIBIS database.

The datasets list  recruits to the artillery and infantry, as brought in by various recruiting sergeants and gives description of recruits:

  • place of birth
  • occupation
  • where and when enlisted
  • attestation, approval and transfer to London.

Most entries also show date and ship of embarkation for India, and for which Presidency.

Our thanks go to  Merran Ainslie.
