George Orde Bigge - Travel Documents

George Orde Bigge - Travel Documents

Various passenger lists gathered from his first trip abroad with the R.E. to his final retirement years. They are interesting documents - in George's later years we see that he, Eliza and occasionally Peggy, would regularly move between Genoa and England for significant portions of the year. When George was stationed to Gibraltar he brought Eliza, Peggy and an unnamed male child.
