QPaul Cooper was interested in finding out why one of his ancestors, Margaret Jane Bearpark, was born in Bermuda. Stephen Ward got in touch to suggest that Margaret’s father, John, could have been in the Royal Artillery, which would account for him being in Bermuda. “Bermuda may not have been their first point of call, but the Crimean War was about to begin and after that he could have been involved in the Indian uprising. The dates between his first child in 1854 and appearing back on the 1861 census in England support the idea of him being in the forces.” Meanwhile, Brian Collins wonders if John, a gardener at The Grange in 1861, worked for a well-to-do family who might have had a house or plantation in Bermuda. He suggests that John could have been working out there in this capacity.
