Have been researching my various paternal lines in India since 2007. He was born in Calcutta to supposedly British parents in 1903. Have traced a few English lines (4/5 Grt Grandparents) arriving India mid-late 1700s - 2 Scottish lines (3x Grt Grandparents) arriving early 1800s plus several Irish lines also present early 1800s plus various other connections. All lines had descendants still in India at time of Indian Rev. & Partition. mid 1947. Was delighted to discover one Grt Grt Grandmother was of at least half Indian Heritage. She was Hester Priscilla Walter Her parents being Hester Maria Tolly & William Walter (Eng). She married my Grt Grt Grandfather James Stuart Robertson (b.1817 Calcutta) in 1842. Some of their children married into families of mixed heritage so I have lateral connections also with Indian heritage. Many worked as Police, in Preventative Services (customs), the Railways & later as journalists & in newspaper. Also have missionary connections in the mid 1900s. I am 1st gen. Australian but grew up totally OZ - with no Indian or Polish influences in my life. Am fascinated to learn of how it was for my grt grt granma Hester Priscilla in the mid 1800s. She is reported to have been 'very dark, with long black hair, always wearing saris". Is anyone else researching that far back? Names included are Tolly, Walter, Robertson, Skinner, Solitude, Rondeau, Macdonald, Sheels, Rabbit, Madden, Bowen, Nichol, Lancaster, Mackay, Melling and Dunbar (my maiden name) -these in no particular order - & more! Had much help from Fibis & in discovering info in India. Jenny Little
