William Beckhamwas born in the Parish of St Michael at
Plea, Norfolk, circa 1794, and was a silk weaver prior to enlisting into the
3rd Foot Guards on 3 May 1812, a volunteer from the East Norfolk Militia, aged
18 years. He was discharged as a Colour-Sergeant in London on 24 May 1842, aged
48 years. His discharge papers state that he served ‘at Vittoria and other
actions in the Peninsula, 2 years, viz 1812 to 1814,’ and ‘in Portugal one year
