If anyone is interested, I have a copy of the Liberation Questionnaire
filled out by a Mervyn de Neise (which I can only suppose must be derived
from de Neys) from Hubli in SW India (at least, that was the address of
his next of kin). He was in the Indian Army and should have been taken
prisoner at the fall of Singapore in 1942, but with the help of Eurasians
in the Malayan forces, he was taken to Kuala Lumpur and lived out the war
amongst that community. He wasn¹t the only one.
Probably irrelevant to the original query, but it might fill a gap for

I have some information on the De Neys or Deneys family, not in
but on the Coromandel Coast of India, in Sadras.
The family is that of Jacob Pieter Deneijs and his wife, Esther Clasina
I was/am researching the Van Someren, Saalfelt, Topander, Duynevelt,
Heefke, Terloenen, Eilbracht and Meppen families in both Ceylon and India.
Unfortunately I do not speak or read Dutch, so much of the information
online is useless to me.
Esther Clasina Topander b 6 Nov 1754 died 6 Apr 1780 Sadras married Jacob
Pieter De Neys (Deneys)
He was Ondercoopman Second en Cassier dessus Comptoirs at Sadras.
Their five children were all buried in Sadras between 1775-78.
If I come across anything more on the name, I will let you know.
