John Dennis Hacon, whereabouts sought.

Postby midshipman » Sat Jun 09, 2018 10:53 am

John Dennis Hacon born 7th June 1849 in Hackney, London. Records show he was Christened by his grandfather John Laming Turner 1793-1871 and the name John is always shown on all records but birth registered as James Dennis Hacon.
John became an articled clerk 1865 and his last known whereabouts were in Calcutta, India. Freemasonry records for 1878 show him a member of the Calcutta Lodge "Temperance and Benevolence". His profession listed as a Purser.
Can any forum member please help throw light on his later whereabouts?

The death registration I mentioned above can be viewed on FMP. Looking at the writing of the clerk it does look like T D Hacon rather than J D Hacon.It will depend whether youcan connect him to The Satara

Many thanks meekhcs. I believe that your information is correct and T. D. Hacon is J.D. Hacon.
