I am looking for any information on how to obtain
lists of the Remount agents for the Indian Army and
their staff who were in Australia c1837-1845.
Would anyone know if the records for the Remount
Agents and their staff were kept in the East Indian
Company's Records in the British Library or would I
have to search shipping records and the Colonial
Secretary Papers and Shipping Records into Australia.
I am hoping some can point me in the right direction

I am presently researching a Thomas Erskine GRANT who was born in West Bengal in 1798.
As I understand it, Thomas Erskine moved to England around 1819, in possession of an inherited fortune which was possibly the proceeds from the sale of his fathers plantation in India.
Thomas Erskines father, John GRANT died sometime prior to 1804.
Could someone on the list please advise where I mind find reference to a will of John GRANT, or the sale of a business such as a plantation in the early 1800`s.
Would either eg., appear on "East India Company" records.
I was wondering if anyone may have a soldier that was killed/died in India (probably Secunderabad) around 1829. He would have been married (to Anne/Ann). She remarried a John Baker in the 46th Regiment so I am assuming that her husband was also in the 46th Regiment. Her surname is listed as Selman but I am unsure as to whether this was her maiden name or her married name. Thanks kindly
As anyone got any information on the HARDLESS family in ALLAHABAD IN 1900's -1970's Looking for family related to CHARLES RICHARD HARDLESS.
Children being CHARLES R HARDLESS [JR], GRACE HARDLESS, BERTHA MURIEL LILIAN HARDLESS, PHILP WILLIAM HARDLESS,
All information is very much appreciated.
Hi David and List
I have no info on Sonna Aviett, but do have some notes on Aviets in
Calcutta (no real research, mind). From the forenames and marriages of
the early ones, I assumed they were part of the Armenian community.
I am trying to trace the following:
1. Samuel SMALLER m. Mary
No details given where they came from or when or where they were married.
They had three sons (do not know if they had any daughters) namely
John (b.15 Jul 1767), Samuel (b.9 Oct 1770) and George (b. 16 Feb 1775 d. 27 Feb 1821 or 1851 or 1857).
From the above Samuel and Mary may have married about 1766.
The births of the sons were registered at Fort St.George, Madras, India.
If anyone has any information on the parents or sons I would be most appreciative for the same.

There are several English copies of his 'Travels on Foot Through the Island of Ceylon'
available on ABE (http://www.abebooks.com). Also a couple on ebay. Checking both sites from
time to time may reveal others.
Some libraries may have them, although the NSW State doesn't appear to... Plus, a COPAC
search (http://www.copac.ac.uk) of the major British research libraries reveals only the
aforementioned volume in English, although there are plenty of others in Dutch etc.

Dear List - I need to have two LDS films looked up and copies of the documents taken. Here in Ireland we do not have access to LDS films.
If there is SKS out there who has used the LDS film service and can get ready access to films, and is prepared to do this, please reply to my email address.
If someone out there is already looking up and can only give me index confirmation on my search subjects, then thank you kindly.
The films are No 1966381 for the W's; and film No 1851036.
My subject is James White - Sub-Conductor Bombay Army/European Army and Mrs. Caroline White - pension beneficiary.
Thank you. Marjorie. Ireland.

Over the years I have posted queries and information on most of these names. As my email changed after posting some of them and I have generated more connections and names, I thought I would do a generic posting of a list of names of interest. Main family names are typically located in the Presidency of Madras and start early 1800's through early 1900's. Associated names are for families who married into the main lines, subsequently.
Main family names:
HODSON (not Hodson's horse): many names late 1700 - early 1930's
MacAlister mid 1800's
LEONARD: early 1800's
BISHOP: Harriett daughter of Samuel, born 1822, St Thomas's Mount, md 2ndly Thomas Plowden 1848
CANTERBURY: (Elizabeth daughter of James who was son of Edward) early to mid 1800's
LEARS: John Lears md 1804 Ft George, Elizabeth Migeles amongst others. Name to mid/late 1800's
PLOWDEN: (not connected to Chichley or variations). Thomas Plowden (son of Edward) had Edward, Anne, Emilie, Edward Coulta, Mary and Catherine (Fanny) mid 1800's
THOMAS: William Thomas and Catherine Smith md 1830, Madras, had at least 13 children 1830-1847!
JONES: Elizabeth md 1825 Francis Lears born abt 1800
MIGELES: Only reference known is marriage of Elizabeth Migeles to John Lears, 1804 in St Mary's Church, Fort St George, Madras Presidency.
RODGERS: Major James Rodgers HEIC, abt 1758-1800 had a sister Mary who married Hodson; and a sister who married Childs.
And some of the associated names include:
CHILD(s), GREATOREX, LeTANG, MEPPEN, MIDDLETON, NABLE, SHREEVE, BLAIKIE, BRIANT, BAGGS,
G(O)ULDENAY, KIDD, NEALE, NETSCHLER, SMALL, THOMPSON, UPSHON.
I am most willing to share my information. Any assistance or leads will be truly appreciated.
Looking for Herbert, Ivan, Winifred or Enid Jessie McMullen.
Enid McMULLEN was born 1913 Moradabad, India and married Melville Robert HAYMAN in abt 1930. They had five daughters namely Greta, Valerie, Geraldine, Marlene and Criena.
Enid later married Thomas Andrew Mackay.
Here is my data taken from East India Registry, Madras BMD records, (LDS) etc.
Lazarus Samuel SMALLER married Georgiana Rudolphinny BARTELS on 13 Jun 1838 in Bangalore. She had not been married to a Bartel, she was a Bartel. Her father was John Bartel and mother Vergennia.
Lazarus and Georgiana (alternatively recorded as Georgina) had three children (1) Elleanor Viginia, (2) Edward John and (3) William Lazarus.
After Lazarus died she married William Lindsay EDWARDS.
William and Georgiana were married on 20 Dec 1841 and had two daughters (1) Grace (Buttons) Caroline Bartel Edwards and (2) Amelia (also recorded as Emily) Ann Edwards.
After Georgiana died on 28 Nov 1845, William married Henrietta Whilemina Van INGEN.
In fact William married three times, his first wife was Ann Caroline Muirhead, his second wife was Georgiana Smaller (nee Bartels) and his third wife was Henrietta Whilemina Van Ingen.
The child Virgina you mention, in all probability, would have been Elleanor Viginia Smaller who was born 21 Mar 1839 and therefore 3 yrs old when Georgiana married William Edwards. The other child you mention as Mascarino is a bit more difficult. Mascarino sounds like a boys name and may have been the unidentified male child b.17 May 1837 to Lazarus Smaller and his first wife Matilda, this child would have been 4 yrs old when Georgina married William. Georgianas last child with Lazarus Smaller was a son William Lazarus b. late 1840.
Do you have any information on Lazarus Samuel Smaller or indeed any of the Smallers?
If you have no objections can you let me have your links to William Lindsay Edwards.
I would love to hear from you off List at ancsmaller(a)optusnet.com.au
Hope the above is of some help.
I wish he was mine.
Edward Backhouse Eastwick
About the author
taken from the "Digital Colonial documents "Latrobe
"Although the book is widely referred to as Murrays
Handbook, in fact the author was Edward Backhouse
Eastwick, a distinguished British diplomat and
scholar. Born in Berkshire in 1814 of Anglo-Indian
parentage, Eastwicks family enjoyed close connections
with the East India Company. Indeed his brother,
Captain William Joseph Eastwick, to whom Edward
dedicates the volume, was one of the Companys
respected directors. However, it was Edwards
educational background, work, life experiences,
extensive travels and conspicuous linguistic skills,
as much as his home environment, that equipped him
admirably for the task of writing the guide.
Immediately he completed his education at Charterhouse
and Merton College, Oxford, Edward joined the Bombay
infantry as a cadet (1836). His proficiency in Indian
languages rapidly propelled him out of military
service and into the political arena in Kathiawar and
Sindh. Unfortunately, ill health eventually forced
him to return to England, where he accepted the
position of Professor of Hindustani at the East India
Companys College in Haileybury (1845). Several years
later, he became Assistant Political Secretary at the
India Office (1859), and the following year agreed to
become Secretary of Legation to the Court of Persia
(1860-63). Other highlights of his celebrated career
include his work as private secretary to Lord
Cranbourne, Marquis of Salisbury (1866), and his
appointment to the House of Commons as conservative
member for Penryn and Falmouth (1868-74). Eastwick
died at Ventnor, Isle of Wight, in 1883.
Edward Eastwick translated a significant number of
German, Urdu, Hindustani and Persian books and wrote
several original works. Arguably, his most acclaimed
publications include his translation from Persian of
the Gulistan (Rose Garden) of Sadi (1852), a
translation from German of Bopps Comparative Grammar
(1856) and Shillers Revolt of the Netherlands (1844),
his Concise Grammar of Hindustani (1847 and 1858), and
A Handbook for India (1859). He ultimately published
separate Handbooks for Madras (2nd ed., 1879), Bombay
(2nd ed., 1881), Bengal (1882), and Panjab (1883). "
