EVA IDA VERNIEUX BENSLEY is my paternal granmother, she died when I was ten years of age, from my researches I have found a HENRY WALTER BENSLEY in Thackers Directory for 1895 as a second clerk in the Cin C's office at Simla, there is also a Mrs BENSLEY working for a firm of tailors and outfitters in Simla and Calcutta and this seems to go with the fact that ARCHIBALD MILLER ROBINSON was a tailor and cutter. I would very much like to contact anyone with information about the family BENSLEY or VERMIENE, the name VERNIEUX should be included
