 I don't know if you can help, I'm trying to find information about my Grandfather who worked for the railway in India he was Born in 1891 and died in Nakuru Kenya in 1940 at the time of his Death he was still working on the Railway his Name was Robin or Robert Martin but apart from that I have no other information apart from that my cousin in Kenya says he is sure his mother told him he was in the RAF at some point the only other thing is my Mother told me everyone called him Tim we have obtained his Death Certificate from the Offices in Nairobi but it doesn't give his full name just says his Name was R Martin and the he died from a Haemorrhage my Mother seems to think he was injured on the Railway, Kind Regards Mary Philpotts mandalaybears@icloud.com

 

*************************************

My father Dhaneswar Mukherjee was an E. Railway employee and was posted as Goods clerk in Asansol nearly 50 years ago during the early sixties of the last century. We used to stay in Traffic Quarters (Qtr No.MN 214) very close to Children's Park, now a desolate place and in dilapidated condition. I would like to share my fond memories of childhood days there. There was an Anglo-Indian family in Qtr No. 215 just opposite our block on the other side of the road leading to Old station. He was one Mr Martin as far as I can remember, and there were two ladies with him probably two sisters. Mr Martin worked in the then D.S. office (now DRM office). They used to play organ at home during Christmas and other religious occasions, and we peeped through their windows to find them praying before the portrait of Jesus Christ and Mother Mary. He was a man of short stature and a very upright man, very punctual in his attendance to duty at D.S. office. He used to walk all the way down to his office.

Hello there, I am a relative necomer to family history research & when time allows undertake a little detective work for my parents & myself.As you well know it can be extremely addictive in a nice way & very rewarding. My maternal relatives went to India in the late 18th century & continued to inhabit different parts of Tamil Nadu. Just recently I have come across a connection with one of the families on your family tree website & as you can see from above the family in question are The Martins. Would there be a possibility that I could make contact with a family member whom is researching on Percival Lushington Stuart Martin as I am a distant relative & would like to exchange information & see whether any surviving members of that line are still alive & well.I did try emailing the researcher whom provided the info on your site-pjblackwood-but my mail was returned unread due to security blocks. I would be more than grateful if you could help me out on this matter & look forward to hearing from you with hopefully some positive feedback. Thanking you for your time & energies, kindest regards, Mr Allsworth Redman ( Allz for short) annieallz@hotmail.com

Any further details you can give about the Carvells of Agra would be much appreciated. I believe they owned a transportation company around the turn of the century.
