John Charleston and his wife, Mary Ann D'Cruz, lived in Calcutta around 1830 to 1900. They had at least 6 children, Elizabeth, Charles, Henry, Jeremiah, John and Ellen. According to a now deceased relative there was a seventh child called Sam, but I have not been able to substantiate this.

I have NO evidence that John Charleston and Edward Charleston (Jnr) are brothers or are even that Edward Charleston (Snr) is the father of either of them.
