BROOK Family Tree

with links to British India


info from & Cheryl

I am trying to research my family tree as far back as possible. My grandfather worked the rail road ,died when my mother was very young. Grandfathers name was Charles H. Brook and was married to Doris (Hart ?) I do not know if he was born in India but he did die there. My mother was born in Cuddalore, her name was Philomena and she had brothers , Eric, Michael, Cyril and a sister Rosemary. They have since immigrated to England. My Mother is now deceased and I have not gotten any help with this information from her living siblings. Would like to know who my great grandparent were and when they came to India. I appreciate any information. Thank you.
