Alexander Maylark Matthews lived in Bengal India

+1 vote
I am looking for my Gt Gt Grandfather, Alexander Maylark Matthew c1840.. I believe he was born in England and somehow ended in Delhi India. I cannot find any details of him on any military records. He married a girl, name not known who was the daughter of an Angelo Indian Man possibile an Apothercary, and a Scottish Sea Captains daughter. I was lead to belive by my Grandmother that the captain his wife and 2 daughters travelled with him.  It is said that both sister remained in Delhi and the parents continued on with there business. Pictures I have show that there is Anglo blood in  my Gt Grandmother, and going back in time the above would seem to be correct.  Alexander and his wife had 4 daughters Virginia Ester (My Gt Grandmother) Adelaide Constance, Cordelia Gertrude and Milvall Caroline.  I do have wuite a lot of infor on these 4 daughters but cannot go any furthr back.  Any help would be great. I am told if there are unusal names they are easier to find, well i have not found that.

I llok forward to hearing from someone.
