A grandmother’s legacy: the early days

30 March @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm BST

This is a Society members-only event. Registration for this event has closed.

How Benjamin Hardy in 1798, a seventh generation weaver ancestor of Jenny Mallin from Mirfield in Yorkshire, sails to Madras with his British Army unit, fights for the next 22 years in India and decides to settle his family there for the next five generations.

Through new research I have been able to offer more on the three ancestors that has an ancestry going back to the 17th century. They were all in the British Army and came from different backgrounds. This is a more indepth look at the start of the ancestors with a storyline which brings together the reasons for my family being linked to the British Raj.
