ROSE Family Tree

with links to British India 


info from  . Hello, I am trying to trace any details of the Kelly and Rose families who lived in Bombay area in the early to mid 1900’s. Also connected families were Ross, Claudius and Fenwick. The Kelly’s were in part a railway family and lived in Byculla Railway Quarters for a time (Berkeley Buildings), as well as for periods of time in Kalyan, Igatpuri, Bhusaval, Amroti and Badnera. Some of the children attended St Mary’s School and St Agnes Convent School in Byculla. Any links based on these threads would be gratefully received!? Stewart Jarvis
