I have an ancestor that in 1871 was listed at the Hougham Barracks in Kent as a rifleman,after that he seems to have disappeared.

I also have an ancestor who lived at Hougham Barracks in the 1840's but the family moved around with the regiment and were moving backwards and forwards between Ireland and Dover over a period of 21 years.

If you know which regiment your ancestor was with, you can trace his movements through the muster rolls and paylists at the National Archives.
