Lt Gonville Bromhead (or Broomhead) was raised in Thurlby South Lincolnshire, near Bourne off the modern day A15. He is part of a family with long military traditions. His father fought with Wolfe at Quebec (Canada) and his son fought at Rorke's Drift in the Zulu wars of 1872 (winning the VC). He became a lieutenant in March 1809 and eventually rose to the rank of Major. The Bromhead family are a Baronetcy and live at Thurlby Hall. Edmund and other family members are buried at St. Firmin's Church in Thurlby! (see below)
