William Kellam was born in Arnesby, Leicestershire, in 1784, and was a weaver prior to joining the Rifle Brigade in Dover in 1805. He is on the sick/injured evacuee list from Corunna in 1809, and went on to fight in the Ist battalion, the 95th Regiment of Foot at Waterloo.

His cap badge and medal remain with his descendants. After his return to the UK, he joined the 4th Royal Veteran Battalion as a Sergeant, and was posted to Ayr. There he met and married Mary Bryce in 1821, and after leaving the army he returned to his native Arnesby,where he died in June 1826 at the age of 42.
