I was just googling around to see who all have listed Hodson as their reference. Hodson is an excellent source of genealogical information for people researching family in the military in India.
The complete title of the book isList of Officers of the Bengal Army,
1758-1834Alphabetically arranged and Annotated with Bibliographical and Genealogical Notices by
Major V.C.P. Hodson
INDIAN ARMY (Retired List)
Author of 'Historical Records of the Viceroy's Body-guard'
Constable & Company Ltd.
As expected I found a few sites of fellow genealogists -
- The Muirs Family.
- The Dwyer Family.
- The JJ Heath-Caldwell Family.
- The McCausland Family.
- The Baker Family.
Found two Anglo-Indian pages
- Dr. Adrian Gilbert's Anglo-Indian page.
Found two military sites -
- Seringapatam, 1799.
- 19th cent. British & Indian Armies.
Also found some lists of books -
- Ian Poyntz's list.
- The bibliography of Lola Seymour.
- Bibliography from the Aberdeen Department of History.
- Source list for Family History at India Office Records.
The one at the University of Aberdeen is excellent, I've listed it below for future reference.
