India births
« on: Thursday 09 September 21 16:33 BST (UK) »
Hi folks.
I am looking for information on how to get information on a birth in India.
My great great grandparents…John Murphy and Agnes Paul married in 1853 in Glasgow, Scotland. They obviously were in India in 1871…1873 as the had two children..Annie Murphy who married James Malcolm in 1893 in Glasgow. James moved to Glasgow from Ireland.
I have found Annie in the 1881 and 1891 Scottish Census living in Glasgow.
Her father was a weaver…. Why would they be in India???
S as my help is much appreciated.

Thanks very much for your prompt reply to my request.
I have thought he might have been in the army!
Do you know if it was common that wife’s went to India? He must have been around 38/40 when his two children were born. Do you have any information about his regiment or where I can find out?
Thanks again
