Thomas Herbert Oakley - reputedly born in Nottinghamshire 1860
Have been having great trouble trying to sort the history of this man - have some intermittent records once he married one Fanny Julia Fox in Dorchester, Dorset - though even then the record is patchy. His early life seems a complete mystery. Apparently born in Nottinghamshire (though no confirmation of this, he may have been a Royal Horse Artillery soldier before marriage.
I seem to have exhausted most of the on-line sources - can anyone provide some clues or guidance?
