NORONHA Family Tree

info from

My husband's connection to the Noronha family is through his great grandfather Emanuel John Noronha who was born 25 December 1852 and died 2 August 1900 in Bombay. The minimal information I do have has come from the Indian Army Lists and from the record of his widow, Mrs P.E. Noronha's admittance to pension after her husband's death. I believe that his wife's name was Penelope Ellen Neil, but another family member thinks that it was Ellen Teresa Neil. My father-in-law who is now deceased, thought that his grandfather was a surgeon-major in charge of a military hospital in Bangalore. This would have meant that E. John Noronha was part of the Indian Medical Service for Madras, and my research has shown this to be incorrect. It does, however, make me wonder if another relative was a senior doctor in Bangalore, although not necessarily in the army, causing my father-in-law's confusion about the matter. The other bit of family lore is that there were three generations of doctors in the family who were all trained in Edinburgh, Scotland. I now know that E. John Noronha trained in India, so we have no idea where that myth sprang from. Sadly I am up against a solid brick wall without his baptismal or marriage record, unless one day somebody from the Noronha side is able to claim him as part of their family tree. Perhaps you may be able to shed some light on the matter? Regards  Eleanor Neil"
