Surnames: Duntze, Turner
I am trying un-successfully to find information on my Great, great grandparents, John Turner and Louise Duntze. They were British residents living in India. I have very little info.I know that they were married in Calcutta India and that Louise Duntze's father was Samuel Munckley Dunze esq. Samuel was born in 1794 and died in 1819 in Bengal India.

Hi

As mentioned in my reply to your other post, the FIBIS Fibiwiki Beginners' Guide has information about researching genealogy in British India
http://wiki.fibis.org/index.php?title=Beginners%27_Guide

If you have not already seen them, the FIBIS database has the following
http://search.fibis.org/frontis/bin/aps_detail.php?id=246089
http://search.fibis.org/frontis/bin/aps_detail.php?id=270052
http://search.fibis.org/frontis/bin/aps_detail.php?id=270052
http://search.fibis.org/frontis/bin/simplesearchsummarycat.p... (I don’t know if this link is permanent)

I couldn’t see a marriage entry on Family Search. I suggest that you try some of the alternative methods of research such as looking at “Domestic Occurrences” in online directories and newspapers, including those published in Britain.

More details in the links in the Beginners’ Guide, but direct Fibiwiki links are

I have since found out that John and Louise are actually...James and Louisa. They were married in Old Mission Church in Calcutta West Bengal, India in April 1839. I still have found no information on who Louisa Duntze's mother was or who James Turner's Parents were. The story goes that James Turner came to be in India after working on a Clipper ship transporting ice to India from lakes in the US.
Any information you may have would be great to know.
Thanks, Janelle Steele

Dear Janelle

I was interested to find your posts relating to Louisa Alice Duntze as last night I was transcribing the will of Samuel Munkley who died in 1800 - he was the son of Nicholas Munkley and Elizabeth Hawker (my 6th great grand aunt) of Exeter who were married in 1719. When Nicholas Munckley died in 1730 his widow remarried in 1733 a John Duntze whose son Sir John Duntze (MP for Exeter) was the father of Samuel Louis Duntze.

Here is an abbreviated extract from the will -"I give and bequeath in trust to John Burridge Cholwith and William Shaw Esq grandfather of my Great Nephew Samuel Munckley Duntze son of my late nephew Samuel Louis Duntze the sum of £1200."

It looks as if Samuel Munkley Duntze married a girl called Jane before sailing to India but I have no further information on this.

I have a considerable amount of information of the Duntze, Hawker and Munkley families which I am happy to share.

Any information you may have for me would be wonderful.
There seems to be a link between Samuel Munckley and the Slave trade out of Jamaica. Were you aware of this?
Thanks,
Janelle
