Can anyone help please - i'm totally new to this area for research but i've just found a reference to an ancestor in Berbice circ 1821 and i'm trying to find out if there is any way to discover more about him.
The name is JOHN GOODALL and i found a reference stating he apparently died in Berbice in Jan 1821 only 18 yrs old .
He wasfrom Hampshire England and if possible i'd like to find out why he was in Berbice at that time .
Even if it is unlikely to find a local reference to him or his death - can anyone please advise on what may have been the likely reason's for him being in Berbice ...trade , military, exploration etc ?
Any help or advice greatly appreciated ,
