Northumberland Militia 1801


JHQ Germany
Hi all
I have a birth certificate indicating the father's occupation as Norththumberland Militia, Shambles Barracks Leeds in 1801. I have had no luck finding info either on the militia or the barracks. The Norhtthumberland Fusiliers museum couldn't assist and the National Archives were vague and not very enlightening. Anybody able to assist or advise? Cheers
Hi Derek
two phone numbers you could try not sure if they are relevant
Northumberland Hussars Museum 0191 239 6789
Northumbrian Regiment 0191 239 6130
I have been trying to locate a regiment with the Nick name Northern Horse so know how frustrating it can be
Good Luck
Hi JB and Julie
Appreciate replies and will explore advices. It is frustrating as I have found general mentions but no further links. Will continue. Cheers Derek
