John Scott was a Captain, and Assistant Adjutant General of the (Madras) Army, aged 30, per his burial record.

I have some of his promotion dates (John Scott "senior"):

Cadet 1803
Lieutenant 21 Sep 1804

No further information I'm afraid. FindMyPast has the 1821 accounts of the administration of his estate but there are no family members mentioned there as far as I can see.
