I have found this chap mentioned as a witness at his brothers 1843, Oxfordshire marriage. Well I assume it is.

His brother is William Cambell Sleigh, born 1819, in Ireland.

Witness -B.W.Arthur Sleigh. 2nd. Militia, India Regt.

All I can find on him...potentialy, is a death in Chelsea in 1869.

Burrows Willcocks A Sleigh
Est. birth - abt 1822
Year of Reg: 1869 J-F-M


And a possible marriage in Liverpool in 1867 to either Emma Oriana Papps or Mary Elizabeth Evans.

I have found an Emma Oriana Papps b.1835. Willesden, Middx.

Also a marriage for Emma Oriana Sleigh in 1876, Croydon.

Not found him in any census, and not even sure he is the same chap that I'm looking for.

Any help, gratefully recieved.:)

Hi Steve

Similar article in nine other papers. All have his name as Bernard W. A Sleigh.

The Pall Mall Gazette (London, England), Monday, March 29, 1869; Issue 1287.
The death is announced this morning of Lieutenant-Colonel Bernard W. A. Sleigh, who was the founder and first proprieter of the Daily Telegraph. He was formerly connected with her Majesty’s 77th and 2nd West Indian Regiments. He was the brother of Serjeant Sleigh.
