My 3rd great grandfather was in the 54th Regiment of Foot out of West Norfolk. A lot of information about his service years and battles was found at Kew in England. Have you thought of checking there about John Evans?

Thank  you for replying.

 His birth should be around 1822 since he came to India in 1845 with the regiment and married in  1847 aged 25.

The only thing that can connect is that he came with the 84 foot regiment in 1845 and later moved on to be the Superintendent of Records DPW at Arcot. His wife name is Maria. His children are Susan, Mark, Richard Sarah,  John William, Thomas. John's father was Thomas Evans(School teacher)
