BEAN, Cassiobury, Watford,  1898 & Troop Movements

October 2001

Andy Bean of Hemel Hempstead, Herts asks: Do you know what regiments were in the Watford area between about 1898 and 1900? Could they have been passing through on their way to fight in the Boer War? My Great grandmother, Alice Mary Bean, was in service at Cassiobury House, and `Family Lore` says the father of my Grandfather was an Officer from a Scots regiment that was being entertained at Cassiobury House.

Births associated with the movement of soldiers are often difficult to unravel - so what can be said about this situation. I have a few points but no certain solution.

Andy Bean replied Thanks for the information re Alice Mary Bean. If I find any more about it I will let you know.

If you can add to the information given above tell me.
