Thomas Alexander Barnett

Postby finnerty » Sat Sep 06, 2008 4:36 pm

Can anyone help trace my wife's great grandfather - Thomas Alexander Barnett born c 1862 and married to Evelina Starkenburgh.

I believe they were both born in India and certainly they lived and died there! They had 8 children all of whom emmigrated to various parts of the globe and who are now deceased but I have no information regarding their occupations or residence (other than the general area of Madras). I can find no trace of them, their siblings or parents.

Any ideas/suggestions/research pointers would be most welcome.

I know this is a long shot as this is a few years since this query was posted. My great grandfather and grandmother were the same as your wife, and I know they were both born in Madras. My dad's mother was Thomas and his wife's daughter, her name was Evelina Mabel. I would be very pleased if I had any response to this post.

Hi there

Find my past also has the baptism of Thomas Alexander's father Thomas Barnett in 1825 in Madras son of Corporal John Barnett and his wife Margaret. Thomas Barnett married twice and his second marriage to Clarissa Carlier is also on the website.
