My great grandfather James Henry Thomas was in the service of Nawab Ashunollah from 1877 to his death in 1887. He went to Dhaka with his wife (name unknown) and two children. He is buried in St. Thomas’ Church, Dhaka.
My grandfather, Albert Douglas Thomas, was born in Dacca and at the age of two his mother died there. Sadly we have no information about her at all.
My great grandfather later remarried a Lavinia Dias in Dacca, she is said to have been the daughter of the Postmaster.
I would love to know more about my great grandfather’s life in Dhaka. If anyone can help me with information I would be most grateful.
