Service history of Reginald Robert Lousada #29 1850-1927

These details were provided by his great-grandson Neville Rochfort from records of the 97th Regiment of Foot which became the Queens Own Royal West Kent Regiment in 1881. The right hand image shows areas of service, with notes concerning when/where his children were born. After his service, judging by an article by him 'Cattle Ranching in New Mexico' which appeared in the Rockhampton Morning Bulletin 10 Nov 1885, he had just been there. In 1914, 13 years before he died, his cousin Herbert George Lousada reported Reginald Robert and his brother St Leger as being 'always on their beam ends' but that Reginald Robert's children were doing well.

His 2nd daughter Norah Agnes Lousada #679 1877-1953 appeared in Australia, where she placed an obituary notice on about 4 May 1950 covering her 2 siblings Rochfort Osman and Kathleen Annie. His wife died in Australia but he died in Paddington, in the same year 1927.
