I'm looking for information on James Alderton, my GG Grandfather.He served with the East Kent Regiment aka The Buffs in India at the end of the 19th century.

He married my GG Grandmother there - Laura Turner and they had children out there as well, including my Great Grandmother Florence May Alderton.His father was Frederick Alderton.
He was a sergeant, before being pensioned back to the UK to live in East Grinstead, Sussex.
Unfortunately, I have no information on where and when he was born - which is what I am really after. I have a suspicion that he was from Lewes.
Unfortunately, he was in India before the 1901 census, during the 1891 census and after the 1881 census - so not getting much luck there!!!
Short of trying to get his military record (which may or may not exist), can anyone suggest any pointers?
Thanks and all the best,
