I'm interested in verifying the birth date and parents of William ASHBY. According to the his retirement papers from the 27th Regiment of Foot in 1867, was born in or near St. Mary's parish, near or in Hull, Yorkshire, ca 1725.
He retired from the 27th regiment while stationed in what is now Quebec, Canada. He married Marie Danielle Berthiaume.
He joined the military ca 1744.
