Tingley Family, India/Burma
Greetings. I am looking for data on any branch of, or data about, the family, in India & Burma from about 1830. Prime interest is NORTH, TINGLEY, HAWKEN, with some interest in GALLAGHER/SMART/SOGGEE/RAYNER/CHETTLE
My Grandparents, Alfred (ex Brit RGH)& Hester, went to Burma in 1910 & Alfred took up duty with the Moghul Street Guard until he died in 1936. The family lost all physical data during the invasion of Burma in WW2.
We have 2 pieces of paper about them - a 1936 obituary from the Rangoon Times, plus an original 'Rangoon
Liberator' newspaper of mid August 1947...which I am happy to copy for people.
I am in process of writing a book about those times, from the hundreds of stories told to us by family who like us,came to Australia as more or less stateless folk & like many of you, have made a go of life.
Am new to Family Circles, but see the value and if your family knew of Alf/Hester/Albert/Clarice/Phoebe/Leslie TINGLEY or their spouses/children (ie: Phyllis [nee Reich], I would very much appreciate your input.
