Subject: Ensign in Bengal
Date: June 25, 2017
Hi, seeking some more information for page below (surname Davy) in India.
Family verbal history suggests Leyson had family (other cousins/ uncles?) in India, hence ability to acquire a cadetship as ensign? But unfortunately the trail runs cold and I have had difficulty locating the family links.
Davy trained as a translator - went onto Java.
Thanks for your time.
