My ancestor - Adam von Beverhoudt - became a cadet ensign with this regiment 21 Oct 1813. He was born in the Danish West Indies so I'm assuming he joined up there. The 6th was disbanded in 1817

I have a note of him a Lt in the 63rd Foot 1818(St Micheal, Barbados)and the 58th Foot (Rutlandshires) 1819 ( Ireland and England - he served at the capture of Guadaluope))

I can't find anything in the British archives about him - any suggestions about where to search for info on these regiments and their members?
