Mazagon is the place I think you are looking for.

Transcribing a "Journal", written in 1831, I am rather stuck in
a particular sentence .
The sentence reads...
"I was told that my brother was staying with my Aunt at [Maza----] about
[?mile] from Bombay. "
Has anyone any idea what could be the name of the place that was obviously
very near to Bombay in 1831?
I am fairly sure of the Maza---- bit of the place name.
The distance is [one digit] mil- from Bombay.
