Would love to hear from any Cearns / Clarke's with an Allahabad / Lucknow / Nainital connection. Crena CEARNS CLARKE



I am interested in the connection between the Christian (that's the surname) family and the Windsor family. There was a Thomas Windsor, a merchant, in Bangkok, Thailand, in the 1870s and it is possible that Daniel T. Windsor was his son, since Thomas Windsor's business partner, Frederic Sydenham Clarke, had married an Annie Christian from India. Can anyone shed any light? David Rodger

I am an only child. My mother's family lived in Calcutta. She lost touch with her father's two sisters when he died young - she was only 10 at the time ie 1930.

Trying to trace two brothers, the sons of William James Clarke who was in the army in India, about early 1906+, William married in India to an Anglo-Indian lady, I understand his wife died, but he had two sons who came to England in the 1930's, my father William died 1963 never told us much but I remember he had letters on his fingers, I remember he said it was his first wife" initials I believe he said it was Minnie Nott, but I am not sure, I would like to hear from anyone who knows anything, He also had a garage with his brother in Secundrabad, his name was John. The two sons I believe were born about 1914/1920 so perhaps children of them might read his, I have been tracing a family tree so I could pass on some information if you would like. Victoria

JJ and Alice moved in about 1877 to the Kolar Gold Fields near Bangalore, where he worked for the next 35 years or so (legend has it that he became Chief Engineer of the Fields, but it may only have been one or two of the mines, which belonged to a firm called John Taylor).

?? CLARKE married ??, children:

  1. Samuel Clarke

Next Generation

Samuel CLARKE (Supt. Messers Wallers Livery Stables 1873. and Hon. Coachman to the Governor - Vere Henry, Lord Hobart; death recorded in the register of St. Mary's Fort St.George, 31st. Jan 1876, aged 32, If that is correct, he could have been born 1844. Recorded a ref. (IOR/FCON/2/24/79 24/7/73) but not sure if this is the right Samuel Clarke. .) married Mary Louise IVE (daughter of Henry Augustus IVE) at St.Thomas Mount, 10 Oct 1870, children :

  1. Sarah Elizabeth CLARKE (Born. Madras 1874), 

  2. Florence CLARKE, 

  3. Hannah Louisa CLARKE, 

  4. Harriet Mary CLARKE  

(They were all baptised at Christ Church, Mount Rd. Madras)

Sarah Elizabeth CLARKE married my Grandfather, Ralph Edward Orr WILLIAMS, 5/1/1894. Christ Church Mount Rd. (Ref. Madras Vol.77 FOL.42. No.7098. 1/5/61 CRO/IOR), children :


Hannah Louisa CLARKE - married a TAYLOR. They retired in Fraser Town, Bangalore. Gt.Aunt Hannah CLARKE died there in around the late 1940's early 1950's.

We have a family Bible that Lady Hobart gave to the Clarke girls. She personally wrote inside the Bible in presenting it. Hazy records of the father of SAMUEL, being Charles Clarke or Thomas Duncan William Clarke need to be verified. My trail comes to a dead stop.

I did find a reference when visiting the Soc. of Gen. in London, to a THOMAS CLARKE, Died 6 Oct. 1683. He served the Honourable Com. He was the Portuguese interperter to the Company. The North Gate of Ft.St. George, Madras, was long known as "Tom Clarke's Gate". His widow was Elizabeth , daug. of Christopher Hartley of Masalipatam and Aguida Pereyra his wife.

Wonder if they fit into the CLARKE picture somewhere?
