ATKINSON Family Tree

with links to British India

The WebThis site


I am looking for relatives of my late father Ken Thomas Atkinson. He was born in Culcutta in 1935 and had a brother called David and sisters Margaret and Marie (i think). He went to boarding school in India and studied engineering and came over to the UK in the 60's. He married my mum Ida Atkinson.
i would love to hear from anyone with regards to his brothers and sisters or extended family.
Please contact Lisa at . Thanks


Looking for a MARIA ELEANOR FITZSIMONS who was the daughter of ELEANOR ATKINSON. Gary Hayes

Anecdotal evidence suggest that Thomas left England to find a brother believed to have been in-service in India. The ship on which Thomas was believed to have arrived in Australia suggested that he had been in India immediately prior to his arrival in Australia. Unfortunately this cannot be verified. However, the Thomas who arrived in Australia C1854 was on the same ship, the Hyderabad, as one J Haigh. Both were denoted as Discharged Soldiers. The Hyderabad sailed from Calcutta. Hope this gives some support to the connection. Seeking information about Thomas Atkinson who sailed from Calcutta to Australia aboard "Hyderabad" in 1853/54. Believed to have been in-service or was seeking his brother who was in-service in India at that time.  David Atkinson
