Happy New Year to all those people in India and Australia and so on, where
it is already the year 2000. This will be my last message of 1999 - but not
of the millennium, of course!
I now announce the launch of my new website (for URL, see below). There's
not much there at the moment, apart from three pages of my genealogy. I will
add other stuff soon, such as acknowledgements to those who have helped me,
and links to some of my favourite websites (e.g. Cathy Day's and Ronnie
The names there at the moment include: PEREIRA, JONES, BROWN, WELSH, RYAN,
FELL, FULLER, RODRIGUES, JANES, LABOUCHARDIERE, GUNTHER, ANDREWS, DE
BRASS... Sorry, I haven't got round to making a comprehensive list. I'll do
one in the new year.
Bye for now, and enjoy the new year celebrations,

SPAREY in Meerut, Lucknow.
Francis Arthur Montague SPAREY was born on 20 August 1909 and baptised at St
John's Church, Meerut, Lucknow. His father was Oliver Francis, a staff
supervisor in the Army Ordnance Corp and his mother was Gertrude Mary nee
MILNE. Francis had sisters named Rose and Dolly and a brother, Percy. There
is a story about the family attending the Delhi Durbar of 1911 and a female
SPAREY photographing it.
How can I find out where/when they lived and some more about the family?
Are there any pictures of St John's on the web?
A Very Happy New Year to all the members of the INDIA-L rootsweb. Thank God there has been no problems with the electricity and water supply as well as my computer is working fine. I hope so is everyone elses. It was great to be the member of the listserve and I have gained a lot of knowledge about our Anglo-Indian community. I hope in the new year we continue to be together on the list and help each other find the roots and ancestors. With all best wishes and regards to all for very prosperous and successful years ahead.
I came across an interesting article written by Anne de Courcy in the Daily Mail of Dec. 18, 1999. In it she recounts her research of the Bowring archives, which is contrary to Anna's own account which has been accepted for years. In the Bowring diaries she is described as a "dumpy, middle-aged half-caste school teacher, who had a British soldier for a father and an Indian mother. She was the widow of an officer in the Public Works Department"
Army lists and birth, marriage and burial records confirm
a.. she was born in India, not Wales, on Novemebr 6 1831, not 1834
b.. her mother, half-indian or indian, married a poor army sergeant named Edwards
c.. her father died before her birth. Her mother sent her and her elder sister Eliza to England, and susbsequently married a british army corporal
d.. Anna had some schooling in England and returned to India in 1845 at the age of 14. She met a Revd. Percy Badger, unmarried, who took her under his wing and travelled together in India, unchaperoned.
e.. At 18 she married Captain Thomas Leon Owens, who died in Malaya in 1859, aged 32. On the burial certificate the name was written as Leonowens. This is the name Anna adopted, so she became Anna Leonowens.
f.. She concealed her mixed heritage, why shouldn't she in an age of White supremacy, and began an extraordinary adventure in Siam, now known as Thailand.
g.. In Siam, her achievement is extremely remarkable as she moved freely between the secluded Nang Harem of King Mongkut and the outside world, to do what she could for her Siamese sisters and influence Siam's future king, Chulalongkorn.
h.. After five years in Siam, she returned to England along with her son Louis (he had been with her in Siam). She left Louis at an English school, wnd collected her daughter Avis from school and moved to Canada. She died in Montreal in 1915.
i.. Here was a remarkable Anglo-Indian woman, who carved her name in history and film.
j.. I wonder what became of the children of her mother's second marriage?
k.. Oh! her neice married a man with Indian blood (an A.I.) and one of their children, Anna's great nephew, became the actor Boris Karloff.
My parents are from Burma:
* Richard Allan Bateman, born in Yangon, May 8, 1920
* Muriel Mercy Philomena Meaton, born in Yenang-Yaung about September 21, 1919

* Regina Rozarios, born in Burma about 1850
* Sophie Florence Ellis, born in Burma, November 19, 1866
* Theodore Adolphus Greene, married to Sophie Ellis in 1885
* Regina Beryl Greene, born in Burma, March 13, 1890
* Henry Herbert Bateman, born in London, UK, November 12, 1870, married
Regina Greene in Burma
* Henry Wright Bateman, born in London, UK, August 10, 1847, died in
Sidney, Australia, September 11, 1926
* Robert Meaton, worked for Burma Oil Company as a chemist in Yenang-Yuang,
Burma, died Burma around 1913, maybe from Bangalore, India
* Mercy Fairman, died Burma around 1915, maybe from Bangalore, India
* Ernest Meaton (brother of Robert Meaton), perhaps involved with the Kolar
Gold Fields near Bangalore, India around 1875

Thanks to Jill for another of her helpful lists of names.
Admittedly I have no evidence, but I'm certain Thomas Edward Higginson was
a member of the family of that name which settled in Co. Antrim ca 1650.
Possibly the son of the Rev. Thomas Edward Higginson, the last chaplain to
the Huguenot community in Lisburn. According to Burke's Irish Family
Records he (the son) was b. 1789, m. 1826, and d. 1891. It evidently
didn't occur to Col. James Graham (who compiled that tree a century ago)
that 102 is an improbable age: the death in 1891 is much more likely to
refer to his son (another Thomas Edward) who was b. 1827 and became a Lt
Col. in the Madras Cavalry (?).
Graham was a most unreliable researcher, as many inaccuracies in several
documents in the PRO in Belfast reveal. When I said as much to Cdr John
Higginson he took it as a personal affront, so we're not likely to get any
more from that source. If anyone reckons to be related to the Higginsons
of Lisburn/Ballinderry/Magheragall, I'd be happy to compare notes.
You didn't say what your grandmother's name was by the way. Do you
know if she ever claimed to have any other brothers or sisters?
There were many King families in India in each of the Presidencies
and I am sure many were related. My own connection to the KING line
was through my paternal grandmother, Charlotte Beatrice, who married
an INGLIS. Her family were from the Bangalore and Madras areas.
I am still awaiting some film from the LDS FHC for the Madras
Presidency, and will keep a lookout for any KING names I find among
many for other listers who have requested lookups.
Please do keep in touch on your own research findings, and if you
have not already done so and are able, do visit Cathy Day's web site
for valuable pointers in starting your research in India and follow
the e-mail tag-lines to many other links to helpful sites.
Blessings to all on your research and For the New Year,
Gordon and Evelyn.

I am looking for any details on the family of John Blyth and Sophia Tubbs.
John, originally from Essex, England, used the name John Blake when he
arrived in Calcutta (c. 1808) to prevent being traced - the story goes!
Children include: William, Daniel, John, George, Evelin.
Places that crop up include: Calcutta, Lucknow, Jhansi, Dinapore and
I have fragments of information which I'm trying to piece together. If you
have come across any BLYTH's or BLAKE's between 1800 and 1900 in India I'd
appreciate hearing from you.

Would it be possible to send the recipe to the list? Would
others mind the off-topic subject? If you think they will mind,
could you send it to me personally? Thanks so much,
I have a copy of a register entry for a marriage of a William CLIFTON to Ann
VRIGNON on 31 May 1826 at the Catholic Cathedral, Calcutta (Bengal
Presidency) Ref. No. N/1/15 fo. 61. This was by licence of which there
are no surviving records in England. Can anyone tell me please what sort
of additional information I might get from the licence record so that I can
decide whether it would be worthwhile getting someone to look it up for me?
My family of Brownsons went to India in c1895 on the ship Carthage via the Suez Canal. They set up their tailoring business in Calcutta - this location is not definite. They were tailors in Ashton-under-Lyne in Lancs also. I have several pictures of the ship & of the family in India but no other info.
Any info much appreciated

I haven't tasted kul-kuls since I was about 16 and living at home,
where it too was a family tradition at Christmas. I wonder if the
'jaw breakers' mum used to make for us as children was how they are
supposed to turn out? Can you please send me the recipe so that my
children and grandchildren can share in this experience.
Oh what a memory the tongue hath! I savour the flavour :)

The name CHALK(E) has motivated a number of listers to contact me for information. I should add that Chalk(e) is only secondary investigation for me. And that the Chalk(e) family I am interested in is related to the HOLMES family, who is in turn related to the DAVIDSONs. I am trying to find out if there were any links between the CHALK(E) and the GROSER family.
The DAVIDSONs were a very large family unit at the end of the 1890's. Then when you add to that their GROSER cousins. The DAVIDSON daughters marred into other large families - HOLMES, RENTON, HILLÉ, and JONES. The JONES and ROTHCELL families make up another large unit in its self.
If you think you have any information on any of the Families here, then please pass it on.
