To all Listers,
Since I read about a lot of interest in Books of India, I found a site which
has a lot of books. I did scan the list and there were some real gems.
<A HREF="http://members.ozemail.com.au/~oldbook/">Click here: The Old Bookroom:Secondhand and Antiquarian books on Asia,The
Middle East and Africa</A>
Still here on the list from sunny Hawaii,
Thanks for the ABEBooks website, John. Unfortunately, the other 4 volumes of
this history were missing, so I was very lucky that the only one there was
that on Asia. The cover shows a little wear, otherwise it's in good
condition and the folded, coloured maps are beautiful. I can't stop dipping
into it. There aren't many names but it is packed with everything else.
Priced at NZ$50 and then discounted, I think I have a treasure indeed!! I
wonder where this book has travelled and how it ended up here. The name
inside the cover, printed under a shield with an interesting animal on it
(!) is ' J. Yeames'.
I am seeking information about RALPH UVEDALE or his descendants. In 1808 he
was attached to the Supreme Court, Clerk of the Crown, Prothonotary,
Examiner and Sealer (Bengal Area).
As it is an unusual surname my guess is anyone sharing it will be linked.
Known children are Eliza (1795) Hugh (1798) John (1801) and Harriet (1804)
Thanks in anticipation

One more posting to follow ...a Scottish stray ...
In a second-hand bookshop I recently found an old book, published in 1834,
History of the British Colonies" vol 1. "Possessions in Asia" by R.
Montgomery Martin. It is a wonderful book, a real treasure, packed full of
the geography, history and statistics of India, Ceylon, Penang, Malacca,
Singapore and China!! Not boring old statistics, but 'stuff' like ...
>"Official Returns (Abstract) of the Schools under the Bombay Presidency,
District: Ahmedabad, Schools: city 21, villages 63, Scholars: Brahmins 2,
Ditto 408.Wannees 1,080, Kombees 524, 17 other castes 480, in Goga 157
District: Concan, Schools: 86 (58 in private dwellings and 28 in temples),
Scholars: 1500 of all castes including 567 Bramins (sic) and no girls
District: Kaira, Schools: 139 badly conducted, Scholars: seldom more than
100 boys in each school, in general much less.
'Allowances to Schoolmasters, and from what source derived'
..The manner of remunerating teachers is exceedingly various, each village
having a mode peculiar to itself. The more general practice is, for each boy
to present daily about a handful of flour. A sum of from one to five rupees
is also usually paid on his leaving school. The parents also pay about one
rupee and a half on the boy being perfect in the first 15 lessons. A similar
sum on his acquiring a perfect knowledge of the alphabet and another similar
sum when he is able to write, to cast up accounts, and to draw out bills of
exchange. The office of schoolmaster is generally hereditary.
..Pecuniary payments , amounting to about four rupees a month upon an
average ( a salary which is stated to be perfectly inadequate for efficient
instruction); it is also customary in Hindoo schools, for each child to give
two mutwars of rice per month, and the shewoo pice, or two pice, to the
teachers on every great Hindoo holiday; but this custom is not invariably
..the boys daily, when they quit the school in the evening, present a
handful of grain, seldom exceeding a quarter of a seer; and when they
finally leave the school make the master a present of two or three rupees.
Boys of respectable families also give half a rupee on first enetring the
school and on days of ceremony send him a meal of grain and ghee. They also
sometimes beg for him from respectable visitors. Total of income between 40
and 100 rupees.<
There is so much fascinating reading on just about every conceivable subject
You want 'opium' (!), here it is ...facts and figures and descriptions such
as "mode of smuggling opium". Other products (roses, sugar, cotton, tea etc)
religions, languages, letters, petitions to Parliament, crime in India and
in England compared, armies, churches and costs of building same, declining
state of the Indian trade with England, importation and exportation of
bullion at each Presidency: ditto at Bengal to and from different countries;
costs of suits at Law in the different Courts of British India ....the list
is endless. What a book! There is a wonderful description of Fort William
which I'll copy out sometime together with other fascinating snippets when I
return from travels.
Another interesting book also found on a stall at a country fair is the
history of the firm, James Finlay & Company Limited, Manufacturers East
India Merchants 1750 - 1950...packed with names and events .. also to be
worked on and enjoyed.
Hello Hilda and listers,
Thank you for this posting. I'm not sure if this man you mentioned below
might be one of my Moore people. Would anyone be able to shed some light on
the 'inmate' and what sort of institution, and also 'H. Josson s.j.' ??
Thanking you for any help,

Hi, my name is Margie Proudfoot (nee Morris) this is the information I have regarding our family - mostly taken from our family Bible and the Wills and Death Notices in South Africa.
William Morris (born 9/7/1822 in Ditton, Surrey, England)
married - 5 September 1853, St Mary's Church, Fort St. George, Madras, India
Mary Anne Harris (born 30 March 1834 in Paddington, England)
William Frederick Morris (born 14/7/1854 in Madras - Christened at St Mary's on 6/9/1854)
Henry Langford Morris (born 17/6/1856in Madras - Christened at St Mary's on 6/8/1856)
Frederick Alexander Morris (born 25 July 1858 in Madras - Christened at St Mary's 13/10/1858)
George Flockhart Morris (born 22/11/1860 in Madras - Christened at St Mary's 2/1/1862 - Died 4/2/1862 - buried at St.Mary's)
Between 1862 and 1864 the family moved to Cape Town, South Africa (Two more sons, Edward Mowbray and my great grandfather, Charles Gratton, were born in Cape Town)
I have ordered the microfilm of the Church records and will post any further info when I receive them.
As far as I am aware (from one of the sons Baptism Certificates) William Morris was a Station Master in South Africa -
he therefore may have been with the British Railyway in India.
I would also like to find out when they moved from the U.K. to India and whether or not their parents or family were with them.
The only information I have prior to the marriage is that her father was Henry Harris.
I look forward to hearing from anyone with any information on my family.
>From another Pedigree in a privately printed book I have, are the following spouses of Barlows in India. This line is very distantly related to me, so I would be glad to hear from any descendant.
LINDSEY - Sophia Sidney, daughter of Major Richard Chaloner LINDSAY, married Lyonell Barlow about 1900. Lyonell lived at "Formosa", Malvern, Worcs, from which I presume he had some connection with the Island.
PEACOCK - Millicent Alice, daughter of Frederick Barnes PEACOCK, CSI (would that be the same as ICS?), married Harold Barlow of PWD, Bengal, in 1896. Her brother Frederick married Laura Barlow about 1899.
McCORMICK - Margaret Sheila, daughter of Col. McCORMICK, CIE, RE, married Lance Mount Barlow of The Guides, Indian Army, about 1930. [What were The Guides, buy the way? I haven't come across them before.]
ANTHONY - Amelia Sophia, married George Thomas Barlow, CIE, PWD in U.P., about 1891. One son was in the ICS, another the Bengal Lancers.
This Pedigree also mentions William Francis Barlow (1803-1827), a Lieut of the 23rd NI, but he may have died unmarried.
The Little Sisters of the Poor were an order of nuns and s.j.
stands for Society of Jesus which means that H.Josson was a Jesuit priest.
No doubt this was a hostel/hospital or similar run by the nuns
Interest postings, Annabelle. Some fascinating 'thumbnail' descriptions of
careers in India in those days. I noted three of these Local officers (Lt.
Cave, Ensign Clark, and Ensign Francis) went on to become indigo planters,
like our own ancesters - yours and mine - were. And three (Ensign Clark,
Ensign Douglas, and Ensign Dring)were members of the Gorakhpur LI. I sat up
and took special notice, Gorakhpur being the place where our own ancestors
lived. I presume the Gorakhpur Light Horse, to which my gfather Frank Coombs
later belonged, was either a companion unit of the Gorakhpur LI (Light
Infantry), or was morphed out of it. Anyway, as I said, interesting stuff.
Thanks for all your effort in typing this info and sending it out to the
List. Best regards to all - Al Thompson on Vancouver Island

At long last I've finished typing up the few burials that I'd extracted from
LDS film # 0528126. I don't have any more details and some of the
handwriting was difficult, if not impossible at times to decipher! I hope
these are useful to those who requested these names earlier ...some of the
entries brought tears to the eyes ... the keyboard is splash proof!
