website contains articles relating to my grandparents families that I
have researched, the DESMIER,
EARLE, COOK and PIPER families.The
articles contain information that will be interesting to family members
that is not contained in with the notes posted as part of the family
tree charts. These can be accessed through the link below.
Desmier and Earle families are my ancestors on my fathers' side.The
Desmier family members are the descendants of Charles Julien Desmier (b
1757, Niort France) who emigrated to Pondicherry to work
Assistant Surgeon. His family later became part of the Anglo Indian
community in India. Subsequently members of that family emigrated to
many other parts of the world but most notably UK, Australia, Canada
and USA. In addition to his decendants the ancestry of this line of the
Desmier family has been traced back to the early 17th century in Niort.
Earle family members are descended from Captain Solomon Earle (b
Ashburton, Devon UK). He spent 18 years in India serving
Honourable East India Company's (HEIC) Bengal army. He returned to UK,
where he married soon after, and subsequently lived in Devon, London
and the Isle of Wight. His three sons all joined the HEIC army and
their descendants grew up in India. Solomon also had seven daughters
and six of those married military men some of whom also spent time in
Cook and Piper families are my mothers ancestors. The Cook family roots
are mainly based around Chisledon in Wiltshire whereas the Piper family
have several generations in Buxted, East Sussex.I will be
adding information on the COOK and PIPER families, hopefully, in the
not too distant future.
