6/10/2014 Noel White, born 1922 I am trying to find any information out there about an anglo indian gentleman called  NOEL WHITE,  born in 1922, probably in India.   I know he was living in London in the 1950s and was possibly a solicitor working with a practice in Fulham.  I would be most grateful to hear from anyone who knew him or knows of him.  Thank you.  Deirdra Morris  deirdra.morris@gmail.com
22/8/14 Mary Louisa MacLeod I am looking for any evidence that a Mary Louisa Macleod, born in Carlisle, Cumberland, England in about 1829, lived in India in or around the 1850s.   I believe her father may have been William Macleod - an East India Merchant.   At this time she may have met a Henry Robert Edlin (who she subsequently followed back to the UK and married).    I'd be grateful for any ideas:  please contact me at macleod.phillips@virgin.net.

5/7/2014 DRUMMOND / BURGE

Simla

Hi, My great Uncle, Cecil Burge, married an Ethel Irene Drummond on 17 Apr 1922 in Simla.  Ethel was born in Jhelum, Bengal, 11 April 1885 to William Adolphus Wallis Drummond and a Catherine Camilla (Her mother's family name I do not know).  It was family rumour that Ethel was Indian and when she and Cecil visited England her presence caused quite a stir in the village.  Being from a fairly ignorant English West Country background it is quite possible that the family presumed she was Indian and did not explore the possibility that Ethel's mother, Catherine Camilla, was either Indian or half Indian and her Father a British soldier or civil servant.  Cecil went on to become the Secretary at Lawrence school, Sanawar during the 1930's.  The passenger log of the "Viceroy of India" travelling from London to Bombay in 1935 shows a Cecil Burge and an Ethel Burge, so she was still alive then but died sometime between then and Cecil leaving India at the end of 1949.   I can't find a death certificate for her.  If anyone can shed some light on any of this I'd be very grateful, regards, James.jamesgrindon@yahoo.co.uk

EDWARDS / COLLINS

Grace Lillian Edwards (my grandmother) born July 15 1906 in Madras(?) She was the daughter of Martin Edwards. She married my grandfather, Joseph Collins in Trinity Chapel, Park Town, Madras on February 28 1927. Joseph was serving with 2nd Battalion Lancashire Fusiliers, stationed in Calicut. My father, James Joseph Edwards Collins was born in Fort St George Madras on April 29, 1927. He died in Bolton, Lancashire on April 30, 2003. Family story is that Grace was former head girl of Madras University - not sure if that was the case. She definitely had a brother, James who was a Lieutenant Colonel in the Indian Army Medical Corps in WW2. He was a surgeon. I believe that the Edwards were an Anglo-Indian family. Anyone know any more about my family please? Vince Collins <vince@planetcollinsmedia.com>

MARTIN

Railway Employee

Calcutta

My father Dhaneswar Mukherjee was an E. Railway employee and was posted as Goods clerk in Asansol nearly 50 years ago during the early sixties of the last century. We used to stay in Traffic Quarters (Qtr No.MN 214) very close to Children's Park, now a desolate place and in dilapidated condition. I would like to share my fond memories of childhood days there. There was an Anglo-Indian family in Qtr No. 215 just opposite our block on the other side of the road leading to Old station. He was one Mr Martin as far as I can remember, and there were two ladies with him probably two sisters. Mr Martin worked in the then D.S. office (now DRM office). They used to play organ at home during Christmas and other religious occasions, and we peeped through their windows to find them praying before the portrait of Jesus Christ and Mother Mary. He was a man of short stature and a very upright man, very punctual in his attendance to duty at D.S. office. He used to walk all the way down to his office. tapankumar mukherjee <tapankumarmukherjee.burdwan@gmail.com>

Hello, Im contacting you to ask if you are able to find out about my family tree in India. Thomas Russell was my great grandfather born 1855 and was Anglo Indian we know he was a jailer in Rajha Mundri. Im trying to trace who his father was. I was born in West Bengal ( Kharagpur) in Sept 1945 to an anglo indian mother, and father who was serving in the RAF.(British) Mothers name was Naomi Wilkins. Her mother Lillian Olivier Wilkins. This is the side that we dont have much information about- namely who the father is of Thomas Russell. How do we find this out please? We have been to the India information here in the Uk but the only likelyhood that we came up with was Thomas Jekin Russell who served in the army. This needs to be clarified more and I would really appreciate finding out more. regards Angela Chandler angela@blukat.fsnet.co.uk

O'CONNOR

Ajmer, St Joseph's Convent

Hello, I am looking for some information regarding my Grand Mother and Great Aunt. They were born to an Irish father, Michael O’Connor and an Anglo India Mother (who’s name we do not know) in Ajmer in 1923 and 1926. We know that they went to St Joseph’s Convent School in 1931-1934 before leaving for England with their father in early 1930. They didn’t have birth certificates, so I am looking for which hospital they were born in. It would also be useful to find anyone who remembers going to school with them during this time. Any information anyone has would be of great help. Sadly, my grandmother and great aunt have now passed away, so the search has become even harder! Many thanks Emily Barrett emily_grace87@hotmail.com

GASS Family

Hi, I’ve been looking through your website and discover many people who were somehow linked/related/known/possibly connected to the Gass family .
The Gass family were resident at Coimbatore, Erode, Coonoor, Trichy, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, USA and UK with other sprinklings here and there.
The Gass Forest Museum at Coimbatore was founded by my GGFather Horace Archibald Gass and his son Sir Neville Archibald Gass was the founder of British Petroleum.
There are Gass’s all over the place but few family histories exist. I guess the Gass’ are a reclusive, academic, industrious lot with links to politicians, academics, business and research for well over 150 years. That is a family trait.
I’m looking for people in your network who may have connections to a Gass anywhere. Right now I am compiling the Family Tree and information would help
Thanks. Appreciate it, Marshall Gass, MA; M.Sc( ScEd); GDITE; Dip Tchg: MNZCS; ( PhD) gassm@delasalle.co.nz

Hi !, I am Janakie from sri lanka,50 years old and trying desperately to find my grandmother's relations who are anglo indians, My grandmother was a Cook and her maiden name was Evelyn. Evelyn married my grandfather, Gerald de Silva when he was in madras on duty and both of them came down to Sri lanka. But after the birth of my mother Barbara, she retuned back to India and never visited the island again. May be there are relations of hers in Madras still and i would appreciate if somebody could trace any one of them. My mother is in her mid seventies now and cant remember much details as she was only 2 years when all this happened. According to her my grandmother was a matron in a hospital in madras and she had met my GF whilst he was warded for treatment. i know i cant help you much but at least i am trying if by luck i could trace my maternal relations. 

My mother Babara was born in the town of Kotagala in the Nuwara Eliya District on the 13th November 1927. She also says that her mother Evelyn Cooke had a sister called Rose Foks. My grand ma had worked in the Madras civil hospital till she got married in 1926 as the matron in charge.

COOKE / De Cruz

Calcutta

I am trying to trace  My paternal Grandfather George Cooke who was the husband of my Grandmother May Blossom(nee De Cruz) She was born in Calcutta in 1921 and bore three children by my Grandfather. Dennis (my father) and my aunts Margaret and Brenda. He was a military policeman and was injured I presume, during the war. Whilst he was in hospital he formed a relationship with a nurse and later when he was discharged left my Grandmother and returned to England. My Grandmother followed in 1947 and later she and My Grandfather were divorced. I believe he settled in the Birmingham area and I presume that he had another family.

HALL / REYNOLDS

JOHNSTON

Hi my name is Sandy Warman-Johnston.  I am searching for two Aunts who it is believed came to Australia in 1947 after independence.  I am told that they came with their father David Hall.  The confusing part is that sometimes they used the name Warman-Johnston, and at other times just JOHNSTON.  As far as I know David Hall left his wife Margaret nee Reynolds after over 25 years of marriage and twelve children, and took the two youngest, these two girls with him, and went to live in Bombay from Calcutta.  I think the two girls names were Irene who was born about 1922 and Rhoda born about 1923.  There is another Aunt Jean, who no one knows what happened to.  She married Walter Marshall and had two children named either Sylvia or Cynthia and Peter.  They did come to England after independence but disappeared and the family think they may have gone to Australia on the assisted passage scheme.  So if anyone can help with information or guidance please contact me by e-mail sandyofwitley@aol.com

EDWARDS

Indian Army

Medical Corps WW2

Grace Lillian Edwards (my grandmother) born July 15 1906 in Madras(?) She was the daughter of Martin Edwards. She married my grandfather, Joseph Collins in Trinity Chapel, Park Town, Madras on February 28 1927. Joseph was serving with 2nd Battalion Lancashire Fusiliers, stationed in Calicut. My father, James Joseph Edwards Collins was born in Fort St George Madras on April 29, 1927. He died in Bolton, Lancashire on April 30, 2003. Family story is that Grace was former head girl of Madras University - not sure if that was the case. She definitely had a brother, James who was a Lieutenant Colonel in the Indian Army Medical Corps in WW2. He was a surgeon. I believe that the Edwards were an Anglo-Indian family.

WATSON , WILKINS  HENDERSON , RIGBY

Pallavaram

My grandfather, Arthur Watson, was of Anglo-Indian descent, born and raised in Pallavaram, Madras. He left India as a child in 1885, when his father left the army and returned to the UK. A cousin (another Kirk descendant) has traced the family history back to 1790 in India, via the female lines of descent. The women married English & Scottish soldiers, but I would imagine that the male descendants would have married into the Anglo-Indian community. If possible I would like to make contact with other descendants.

From the information that is available from christenings & marriages, my family came from the area known as the Madras Presidency (Bangalore, Arcot, Pallavaram, Ooty) - other surnames include
WILKINS, HENDERSON & RIGBY.  Lesley Watson lotus296@bigpond.com

SCOTT/JONES

Malaysia, Singapore

I am looking for anyone who can give me some information on my grand-parents: Robert Arthur Scott and Iris Estelle (I think) Jones. I know there is a great uncle Gordon Scott who is living in Canada. Iris had brothers named Elmer, Terrance & I think Andy. I believe they came to Australia sometime in the 1950's, stayed for some time in Perth before going on to Sunshine, Vic and then to Sydney where they remained for many years before returning to Perth in the late 1970's. Robert passed away in Dec, 1983 and Iris perhaps ten years later. They had seven children, three girls and four boys. Thank you for any help you can offer as I know virtually nothing about my history as my mother never spoke about where they came from other than having lived in Malaysa & Singapore, going to the Naval Base Club, The Raffles but I don't know anything about my heritage, my ancestry and feel like I'm not quite complete.

St Peters School,

Mazagaon, Bombay

hello n greetings... to who ever is reading this .I frankly don't know where to start from but am gonna do my best n put this as
simple as I can.My aunt (…nee Ms Roshan Dittia ) is an  ex- St Peters School, Mazagaon, Bombay
(now Mumbai)... years were 1942 – 1946/7….. I am trying to trace or connect with anyone of her class mates or relatives too  -  if i can trace even ""one"" just
one school friend for her......as we have always been hearing these wonderful stories of her fun filled
mischievious classmates / friends - mainly British, Australian, & Anglo Indian girls n guys who studied in this school then with her and all the fun they had.
Well my aunt is gonna be 75 yrs old so i decided to do something special - i want to give her a present of a lifetime.
My aunt, my mom & their family they used to stay in the bungalow which was adjacent to the school compound ( if that helps) ...there was the school
principals office and residence side, then the gym n church side , the main school side and then the fourth part of the compound was a wall with their
house………the wall only dividing the compound n their house. I also know from her that majority of the students migrated and or returned to Britain, Australia,
USA some settled in Canada…… this is tough esp since most of them must be in the same age bracket n I really don’t know how many maybe net savy - so i need to
reach out to the next generation and or anyone  who knows someone who stayed in Bombay in n around that period n studied in this school or knows some families
who migrated around the same time who have connections………..... some of the classmates I believe kept in touch for few years n then as we all know everyone
drifted with lifes struggles and priorities took over each others lives…...  But I am not going to give up .... I will atleast try.... and try real hard with
all the help I am going to get from all the wonderful people out there……. if there is any way or anyone who can help n guide me in achieving this feat – I
wud be ever so grateful.  please do revert to me if u have any guidelines or any places u think i shud look into - i wud appreciate it.
my personal email id is - snlmq@hotmail.com  thank you so much. - Nilo

It is with much joy and heartfelt thanks that I write this e-mail to you. The message reading looking for Margaret Williams in America has been such a
tremendous success. It was come upon by the "Grace of God" by her very own son, and now after 49 years we have been reunited with our dearly loved cousin
Margaret. Yes we last spoke to her in 1954, to say our goodbyes as she was migrating to the U.S.A.

LABROOY

Dear Sir, One of the grandmothers of one of my grandmothers was one of the children of Johannes Labrooy. Her name was Dirkje Labrooy. Dirkje, born 2 february 1794 in Monster in The Netherlands, was the youngest child of Johannes. She had one sister (Elisabeth,1781) and five brothers Pieter,1780; Hendrik Gabriël, 1783; Frank, 1784; Jan, 1786 and Frans, 1788. They all lived in Monster. The family of Johannes origanaly came from France (Valenciennes). His familytree begins with Druon La Broy born abt 1600 in Valenciennes.We can not find (exept Dirkje) any of the six other children of Johannes. It may be that they all went after 1799/1814 to other countries for polytical reasons. Our archives don´t give any information and nobody with the name Labrooy is still living in our country. If you could help me with any information about this family (many names in Australia with this name can be found on internet, but I couldn´t find one who was looking for his/her familytree), I would be very thankfull.  Greetings from Pieter Dubbelman.  I (born in 1927) am living in a small town Burgh-Haamstede in the Netherlands.   Pieter.Dubbelman@12move.nl

PRIDE / COSTALO

Spanish Ancestory

 I have found that one of my ancestors "Matilda" was born in 1837 in Kirkee, Bombay her maiden name was Costalo. I think her family originated from Spain.She married Albert Pride who was in the army in India. I am not sure where the wedding took place but their first son also Albert was born 1857 in Kirkee in poona. They then came to England where Albert (snr ) was born went on to have two more sons then went back to India where another son was born. They returned to England had two more sons and finally settled in Hunslet, Leeds.If any body could shed any light on why the spanish went to India or the Costalo family or any other information i would be extremely grateful.

MITCHELL

Calcutta

My great great great grandmother was Catherine Mitchell. We do not know know much about the woman except that she married Owen Clement Boodrie on the 2 Sep 1822 in St John's Cathedral, Calcutta. She was listed as being a spinster formerly resident at The Lower (Road?) Orphange School, Calcutta. Owen Boodrie was a fifer in the 2/15th Bengal Native Infantry, so he is certain have been an Anglo-Indian, and presume that Catherine was also. Does anyone have any further information about the Mitchell family in India? Please contact us at: jarrodcorlia.bell@ntlworld.com   Jarrod and Corlia Bell

BROWNE Rangoon/Burma

Hello, Having found your very interesting web-site I wonder if you could help me? I can see that the site is primarily concerned with Indian history, but would Burma be included somewhere?My Gt. Grandfather was William Algie BROWNE and lived and worked in Burma. His daughter, my grandmother was born in Rangoon in 1888. Sadly, I can find absolutely no documentation to confirm this. Would a message on your message board be acceptable? I look forward to hearing from you.Norma (Hewitt) hewkat@ninna.fsnet.co.uk  P.S. My grandmother was of Burmese/Burman origin as well as British - were such marriages solemnised? She was a very well-educated and cultured lady.

hi, i am janakie from sri lanka,50 years old and trying desperately to find my grandmother's relations who r anglo indians, My grandmother was a Cook and her maiden name was Evelyn. Evelyn married my grandfather, Gerald de Silva when he was in madras on duty and both of them came down to Sri lanka. But after the birth of my mother Barbara, she retuned back to India and never visited the island again. May be there are relations of hers in Madras still and i would appreciate if somebody could trace any one of them. My mother is in her mid seventies now and cant remember much details as she was only 2 years when all this happened. According to her my grandmother was a matron in a hospital in madras and she had met my GF whilst he was warded for treatment. i know i cant help you much but at least i am trying if by luck i could trace my maternal relations. 
My mother Babara was born in the town of Kotagala in the Nuwara Eliya District on the 13th November 1927. She also says that her mother Evelyn Cooke had a sister called Rose Foks. My grand ma had worked in the Madras civil hospital till she got married in 1926 as the matron in charge.
