1 (1) In http://dsal.uchicago.edu/maps/gazetteer/index.html there's an old map showing Khammamet (I think) west of Secunderabad in the province (?) of Warangal.
(2) In http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~poyntz/India/maps.html#area Constables 1893 area maps there's an index of place names which gives a district and town of Kamamet (in Haid.)
In current day India I can find two possibilities -
(3) Kamarhati, but that is a suburb of Calcutta in West Bengal, which seems unlikely;
(4) Kamareddi, which is maybe 70 miles North of Secunderabad.

He left India in 1947 shortly after India was granted independence, though the older children had gone to England before the war. According to Florence they went to Newcastle because Winifred's husband Edward Davis came from there, and they had no other ties in England. 
Weston, Edwin Ash (I113)
 
2 32 when he died. He wasn't named in his brother Richard's will in 1782, so presumably he didn't have children. Burford, Francis (I1302)
 
3 51 when he died. He wasn't named in his brother Richard's will in 1782, so presumably he didn't have children. Burford, John (I1303)
 
4 A Rupert W B Boyton married a 'Metson' in 1914 Sept qtr in Braintree district vol 4a p1815. Could be him, but he would be 34. Check. Boyton, Rupert (I310)
 
5 According to FIBIS a Richard C Shakespear, described as a cadet, took out a bond for 200GBP in 1826. He would have been 14, if this is indeed Richmond.
Apparently this is the security a visitor would give to the East India Company. The Sureties were John Ritchie, Southampton Row, Merchant and Andrew F Ramsey, Church St, Chelsea, MD. 
Shakespear, Sir Richmond Campbell (I399)
 
6 According to his daughter's baptism entry he was in the Punjab Civil Government. Chamarette, Robert Douthwaite Cameron (I95)
 
7 address was still 13 Church Street, Bocking Boyton, Jessie (I1601)
 
8 Always known as Bobbie Hopkins, Mary Caroline P (I221)
 
9 Always lived with his grandmother according to the censuses. Perhaps he was a bastard and wasn't christened until his mother married and had a second child. Then, if her husband was not the father it would make sense for him to stay with his grandmother. Worrall, Frederick (I1366)
 
10 Andrew is the earliest Chamarette found. He was the first in India, and no Chamarettes (or Chamaretts or Chamarets) have been found in England prior to that - or in fact at all until they started to return from India in the Twentieth Century. Andrew spelt it Chamarett as did his son Peter - his other sons seem to have added the final 'e'. The Chamaret surname does exist in France. Chamarette, Andrew (I312)
 
11 Andrew Murray (who married Mary, the groom's sister)was a witness - also note Hastings Murray son of Andrew married Catherine Sarah daughter of Peter Chamarette in 1874. Family F35
 
12 Anne Louise was a widow - name at marriage was Bayley, father was Barnum. Family F71
 
13 Arthur also says : When you write Norman you can convey my best wishes to him. You can also tell him that I really liked and loved his brother John William Herbert Chamarette. I was lucky to have spent a month with him in 1979 when I left Australia and traveled the world for six months with my girlfriend (my wife of 26 years now) Grandfather did not leave India in 1966 when we did he stayed on. It was good for my spirit to see him. He was 81 years at the time and still rode his bicycle about 10 miles round trip from his cashew plantation to the markets. Happiest 81 year old I ever met. If there's one thing I hope I have at that age it would be his happiness.

In prior emails with my mother she has some memories of your mother and or aunt. They lived in Jamshedpur. I have seen the house where they lived. I was schooled in Loyola boarding school in Jamshedpur and often walked past the house on days when the priests would release us from our prison like oppressed existence 
Chamarette, John William Herbert (I206)
 
14 Arthur Mitchell (his grandson, via daughter Joyce) says
"My mother Joyce replied to my questions "Why did the Chamarette's move to Jamshedpur" Mother is not really sure, but she thinks that some of the reasons could have been: Poor hospital/medical facalaties, Political & civil chaos, Domestic help was not trustworthy.
Her parents then ended up in a place called Thana, her dad was involved in bridge building for the Railways. In 1978 I visited Grandfather in Jhargram and spent a month with him. I remember his bridge building stories. Just picture this. They worked in total isolation away from civilization, they lived in camps. Every now and then they would be attacked by bandits. So they would take cover, pick up rifles and go into battle. When the firing stopped they would resume bridge building. Now that's what I callwork ethic. My employees would complain that their office chairs were not ergonomical enough and that the toilet paper was not soft enough. Amazing!
Anyway, Conditions were not much better in Thana, so they moved to Jamshedpur, seems to me that would have been a technological center, a 'silicon valley' of the times. The steel mill offered good employment and the conditions must have been better. Theylived at 7 Khosi Rd. I often walked by the house when I was a ten year old kid. I attended a torturous couple of years in boarding school at Loyola in Jamshedpur. "

So - John William was born in Hyderabad in 1896, went to Thana to work on building a bridge, then on to Jamshedpur which was much more civilized. No dates, but he was married in Quetta in 1922 and his youngest daughter Joyce was born in Jamshedpur in 1927. Quetta seems to be in the same area as Thana, so maybe he was there in 1922. Then on to Jamshedpur before 1927.
He died in Jhargrahm in 1980. 
Chamarette, John William Herbert (I206)
 
15 Arthur Mitchell found a handwritten document from the Library in India that possesses documents relating to the Survey of India. It first talks of Andrew Senior, then goes on to say
' Andrew Chamarett (Junior) born on 20.11.1832 joined the department on 2.6.1852 at Cultock (?) and learned his survey in Robinson's Party, being transferred to his father's old party when the Hyderabad Survey was resumed in 1855. He remained with that party after its move to the central provinces and till his own transfer to the Calcutta Drawing Office.
He retired as Chief Draughtsman in 1884
His employments Puidi (?) Topo party 1852-6
Hyderabad Survey 1856-1870
Calcutta Drawing Office 1871 till retirement on 1.6.1884
He had a son Andrew Chamarett who also joined SGO (?), Madras as an engraver in 1884.' 
Chamarette, Andrew (I314)
 
16 Arthur Mitchell says he was F.R.G.S - presumably Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.
 
Chamarette, Andrew (I312)
 
17 At her death in 1856, Rosannah was his wife, not widow, so he was alive then. Maine, Samuel (I939)
 
18 Beheaded Fitzalan, Edmund (I1054)
 
19 Birth year from 1911 census return James, William Henry (I1915)
 
20 Born 58 Norfolk House Road, Streatham, SW16
Moved at about 1 year old to 48 Holmwood Road, Seven Kings.
From 7 to 9 lived at 2 Faircroft Ave, Barking. This was left to Grandpa by Grandma Muse, who was his mother (no other children). She later married Thomas Muse and lived with him at his house in Suffolk and might have died there, but she kept the Barking house until she died.
The house at 42 Collier Row Lane was built, and they moved there when Dad was 9. 
Hughes, Roy George (I295)
 
21 By the 1901 census James was a widower, so she died between 1891 and 1901. Bowen, Anne (I43)
 
22 Census 1861. In this district the piece was RG 9/4173, and it is known that some of the parishes are missing. Family F132
 
23 Charles Newton Weston (Robert's great grandson) wrote in his book (relevant chapter in Documents) that he visited Brackley in 1936. He saw a gravestone 'Sacred to the memory of Mary, the beloved wife of Robert Weston of this town, Solicitor, who died on 6th day of January 1876 and of Robert Weston who died on 14th December 1889 aged 64 years.'
This could not have been the grave of his great grandmother since she died in 1844. Robert's second wife Maria died in 1889. And Robert himself died in 1872. So this gravestone is problematical - could there have been two solicitors in Brackley called Robert Weston?

So this gravestone is problematical - could there have been two solicitors in Brackley called Robert Weston? Or perhaps Newton got his dates wrong.
Note that THIS Robert would have been 64 in 1889, so he could be the one buried here.
 
Weston, Robert (I46)
 
26 Check out the letter from Francis Emily's mother in which she mentions the husband's monomania. Family F393

Georges Community and Church, serving on both church and school

He was actually baptised Walter Thompson Poyntz according to the OIOC record. It has the note 'privately' above the baptism date - presumably this was done at home instead of church..

47 From Arthur Mitchell's notes:-
Winefred Married Doctor Clark. Family discussions recount stories about visits to aunt Winnie's house in Hyderbad. Ethel May Chamarette with daughters Joyce and Zoe would visit Winnie, who would at sometime through the visit bring out chests of jewelry ofsignificant value and historical importance. The clark family was connected with the Nizam of hyderabad known to be the richest man in the world at that time. Ethel and the children, would each be asked, to select one piece of jewelry from the chest tohave as gifts and they would. However, Winnie at an opportune moment and chance was always able to collect all jewelry and put it back in the chest. Leaving a disappointed mother and daughters. At some later point in time possibly a couple of years, Winnie tried the same act on visiting family. Joyce being one of the group at the time, who had learned the Winnie trick, promptly placed a ring on her finger. The ring is now on the finger of Jane her Daughter. I'm sure Granddaughter Kerry Jane will some daygive it to her daughter and recount the story.
