Surnames: Sheldon, Hornsby
I'm currently looking into this and have some info. Its tough going with these ones as records are not always complete. I wonder if anyone else is looking at this family.

For me it started with Mona Sheldon who married Richard C Hornsby in Madras 1926. Finally I found her birth in 1905 thus ending a series of misdirections from a similarly named person. Now I'm trying to figure out her parents Benjamin Joseph Sheldon and Mary who I believe is Mary Elizabeth Sheldon possibly nee Bennett but not sure yet!?

I also belive she has an older brother: Hertford Joseph Sheldon b. 27 Mar 1895 and a younger sis: Edna Muriel Sheldon b. 27 Sep 1909.

Have you tried the India Office Library? They have a family history section - also the Families in British India Society (FIBIS) if you haven't tried them.
