Hi folks....A few months back I asked for info on the CHITTY family ..I have since had
correspondence with Lt.Col. Peter Chitty ( now Merlott- Chitty..."By deedpoll, dated
4th April, 1946 they assumed the sirname of MERLOTT in addition to and before that of
CHITTY") in Hampshire who has given me the family tree... The whole problem I had was
that, unbeknown to me , TWO Jameson sisters married TWO Chitty brothers( The Jameson
's were my great.gr, Aunts, and descended from the Inglis family of Inverness).
It has taken me about 8 hours to write the Chitty family .HUGE FAMILIES !, into my
"Family Tree Maker" system. Following are sir names they married into, many
Army families( and quite distinguishing themselves) serving in India, from abt.1850s to
1940s. and of course some sirnames are the wives.(Dau.s of Army men)...Maybe you will
find a familiar name. JOURDAN, MARTEN, BRADY., RAMSAY, FRASER,LATHAM,
DUNCAN,GRANT( of Fiji),HORT, HARPER & JELLICOE(connections in NZ), Alicia
M.Julia(PERRIERA ?, nee MONTAGU ?), Alexandria Mary WATTS-JONES(nee Cadell) ...
