Hi

I hadn't seen that one. I don't have any idea of ages or dates for William and Helena so it is a possibility. The main thing that says not to me is that the departure is from Bombay rather than Calcutta which would have been their nearest port. Not impossible though. As soon as I find anything at the museum I will let you know

All the best

Hi Chris,  look at the IGI, Philip had one brother and two sisters.

Laura Florence 1881
Mabel Irene Franziska 1886
Frederick Clarence Scindia1894

These three also born in Bengal. Perhaps you can find them on Passenger Lists.

Hi Val,

This sounds exciting! As I am a complete novice at this can you please tell me what an IGI is?

Thanks for the IGI pointer.

I have found the other siblings and they do fit. One thing that is interesting is the slightly unusual names. A quick look shows that "Franziska" is a German name and Helena the mother never seems to crop up in England so maybe she was German which might explain the lack of earlier English records.

There is a passenger record for a Frederick C coming to the UK on what seems like a business trip in 1925 but none for the girls. Given the previous lack of passenger records my bet would be that William, Helena and the girls stayed in India.

I think much would be revealed if I can get my hands on a birth certificate for one of them.....
