Public records for BDM didnt really start until 1837 since you havent given many clues its harder to track but you gr gr grandfather would have been no more than 44 when the regiments amalgamated search between 1859-1862 for his marriage, birth might be around 1837, bad new anything before that records werent that great due to fact few could read and write in English!

I think the 47th reg was in Malta 1853 to 1857, and took part in the Crimean war so it is possible that the family was in Malta then,John was a child and probably learnt the Maltese language and became a translater at the law courts. After two years he was transferred to the Public Registry of Malta as a clerk. John died aged 33 in Malta in 1877
