Chatfield Family History Genealogy

Founded 1985 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo in Belgium in 1815 between The Duke of Wellington and Napoleon Bonaparte.
800th anniversary of the Magna Carta at Runnymede, Surrey, England.

CHATFIELD, James (Presume survived but not confirmed). Of 10th Light Dragoons on the medal roll for the Military General Service Medal (1793-1814). He has three clasps on his medal for Vittoria, Spain (1813) Toulouse, France (1814) and Orthez, France (1814). The medal and clasps were only awarded to those who survived so this man would probably have lived long enough to fight at Waterloo in 1815.
