My ancestor James Seery was born in 1821 in Ireland and his wife Bridget was also born in Ireland in 1822.
The fist census they appear in is the 1871 UK census. Their first four children were born in the Cape of Good Hope, Grahamstown, South Africa. James is listed as an army pensioner. However i cannot find any information about what regiment he was in. I would love to find out more about what the family did in South Africa and when they went there.
