I just found out about this magazine (maybe I am slower than everyone else) It was published briefly from about 1830 to 1836, more or less. It seems to have come out monthly.
If you enter the name into WordCat.org and select the response with ebook noted, it leads, via “Volltext”, to the Bayern state library. They have, available online, from the end of 1834 thru mid 1836.
The magazines have BMD information for the three Presidencies, as well as military and municipal changes.
The advantage is that it is free and easy to access.

The following piece appeared in the West Briton newspaper, Truro,
Cornwall, UK on 19 April 1861 and is forwarded from the CORNISH-GEN List.
West Briton & Cornwall Advertiser - 19 April 1861
THE FAMIN IN INDIA.
On Sunday last sermons were preached in most of the churches and chapels
in Penzance in behalf of the Relief Fund. As a result there was sent on
Tuesday to the Lord Mayor of London, by the Mayor of Penzance, as a
first remittance on account of the fund:- Collected at St. Marys, per
Rev. P. HEDGELAND, incumbent, GBP 32; at the Congregational Chapel, per
Rev. J. S. THODEY ALLEN, GBP 5. 3s. 7d.; At the Mount-street Chapel, per
Rev. E. POWELL, GBP 2. 10s.; at the Wesleyan Free Church, per Rev. J.
KENNARD, GBP1. 15s. 6d.; total GBP 47. 6s. 9d. GBP 15. 11s. 3d. was
collected at the Wesleyan Chapel, but this amount goes to the Conference
and aids the subscriptions of the Methodists as a body.
Godlieb means "gift from God." The baptism record on FindMyPast shows
Godlieb to be the "natural son" (i.e. illegitimate son") of William Williams
and Aynamah, so I'm not surprised that you have not yet found any marriage.
When you say you have looked at records in Pondicherry or Chandernagore do you mean you have browsed them via ANOM? If not, then that is what you need to do.

There's a family tree on ancestry.ca (Canada) that gives his parents as
Vinditien Francois Simon Bouchez and Rose J. Venture. No verification
reference is given. The tree's owner is a Peter Schofield of Lytham St.
Anne's in the U.K.
I have reason to believe that William Williams, my Gt.Gt.Gt. Grandfather who
sailed to Madras with the Madras Arty. from Bristol, January 1813 was aboard
the "General Stewart". It landed I believe August 1813.
Don't have any documentation of the marriage of William Williams, other than
he and his wife Ann or Annama presented their son Godlieb Williams, said to
be born 5th. March 1814., to the Chaplain Rev M. Davis at St. Mark's Chapel
(Black Town later re-named George Town) .Actually visited the church and
stood by the font, where no doubt Godlieb was baptised.
I take it, as William was an other ranks soldier, he could not have had a
shipboard romance, but it does not work out for a 9 month pregnancy, from
the ship landing in Aug. and presenting a child for Christening in January.
Aboard the ship, I am given to believe, was an Anglo-Indian lady, aged
under 14 years, called Ann Trober. Was this the wife of William and mother
I have no history of the Trober family, if such exists. Wonder if Ann Trober
was returning to India, what had caused her to visit Britain in the first
place Any Trober information would be appreciated.
Godlieb on his birth certificate is shown to be Eurasian or Indo-Briton, so
is of mixed blood, showing that his mother was either Indian or
Have always been puzzled by the name Godlieb, as far as I know we have no
German or Dutch relationships. Danish, yes, but not the others. A kind
contributor to the list, did inform me of a Dutch business man in Madras,
called Godlieb Von Someren. Perhaps William and Ann, were friends?
My father Ralph Godlieb McTaggert Williams (b. 1895) also carried this name.
Not surprised by the McTaggert, as there were lots of Scottish names coming
from the Clarke side of the family, including Taylor and Orr.
Any help would be appreciated.

On Find My Past there is a marriage entry for a Francis Bouchez, a native of Pondicherry, Bachelor to Rozy Vanture, a native of Chandernagore, Bengal, Spinster.
The marriage took place at Fort William, Calcutta on the 7th March 1797.
Could these be his parents?
Thank you for your response.
Yes, Peter and I shared information on our ancestor in common, Francis Manuel Bouchez. Although all the circumstantial evidence points to Francis Manuel being Vinditien Francois' son, I was looking for definitive corroboration of such.
Do you happen to have Peter's email address ? Unfortunately I lost it on my migration to a new email provider.
Suggest you look at
I quote from there:
"Edward Garstin commissioned 1811.
Lt 1 Sep 1818: Capt 10 May 1823: Lt Col 28 Aug 1842: Col 1848
and finally Major General 1854."
The "rank" of "Colonel Commandant" was not a substantive rank, but a title.
There are explanations that you can easily find using Google of why that
title was granted in selected cases. In Garstin's case, it's clear that his
final rank was Major-General.
I would like to hear from anyone who may have specific details on the parents of Francis Manuel BOUCHEZ, born in Pondicherry or Chandernagore or Calcutta between 1795 and 1800. I am aware that he was the Assistant Curator at the Asiatic Society in the 1830s/1840s
I have found Andrew DeRozario Married Dorothea HECTOR sometime in the 1800
in Pulicat, they had 4 boys & 2 daughters .
Is anyone else researching the Surname DeRozario in the area of Pulicat, it
seems Andrew DeRozario had left a WILL so that is how I found the children's
Johanna Francina DeRozario Born 1805
Celestina Maria Laurencina
Thomas Garret Cornelius DeRozario Born 1811
Daniel William DeRozario
Jacob John DeRozario.
Now at some point the surname changes to D'Rozario, they still stayed in
Pulicat which I have been told was a well-known area for Portuguese & Dutch
As our Hector's were said to of been of Dutch descent but I don't know when
& we have about 3 lots of DeRozario, D'Rozario & Rozario in our lineage.
I'm stuck on Bibianna Rozario whose father was Matthew Lewis Rozario.
Thanks in advance if anyone can help
