I have come across an extract from a newspaper ...The Birmingham Journal of 9th June 1860 reporting the death of ..

John Eccleshall Sergeant Major with the 17th Lancers aged 35. He died on "The Belgravia".
He was the son of George Eccleshall of Reservoir Lodge Edgbaston, Birmingham
"much respected by all who knew him"

I am very keen to find out more about him ...as this is all I have. I have been unable to find any records online for him or the ship Belgravia.

I would appreciate any help any one can give me
Thankyou
