Alfred William Broughton


Well-known member
Some help needed please.
Does anybody know anything about the 16th Regiment.
Alfred William Broughton 1872 Corporal 16th regiment The Camp Colchester.
On 1881 census he is shown(if he is the same person)
William Broughton
Age 29
Estimated Year of Birth 1852
Relationship to Head of Household Soldier
Occupation Private 16 Lancers
Address Fulford Road
District York, Walmgate
Parish Gate Fulford
Administrative County Yorkshire (East Riding)
Birth Place Grantham
Birth County Lincolnshire

Why would he be a Corporal in 1872 on his sons birth certificate & then a Private in 1881.

Thank you
