Charleston Family History


The Charleston family I know about starts with John Charleston and Mary Ann d'Cruz in Calcutta in 1800's.

John and Mary Ann had a daughter, Ellen who married Samuel Leonard Simmonds. John and Mary Ann also had two sons, Charles and Sam or John Joseph.

I found another Charleston family (Edward and Edward Ernest Charleston) living in India in the 1800's but so far I have not been able to relate them to our Charleston family. I have guessed that John Charleston and Edward Ernest Charleston could have been brothers, there is absolutely no proof of this.
