In 1979 a set of diaries were discovered in a cupboard in the room of an outgoing Honorary Secretary of the Madras Club. The building had previously been the home of Alexander Falconar, Chief Secretary of Madras. They were written between 1790 and 1809, with some gaps

The diaries were edited and published by N.S. Ramaswami. They were jottings rather than full diaries, and in difficult hand writing. Nevertheless they give important insights into the life and times of Alexander Falconar and his family.
