Balstons in India and South Africa
Posted by: Chris Balston (ID *****4669) Date: July 23, 2002 at 22:28:38

Samuel BALSTON, b. Allington, Dorset, circa 1720, a Goldsmith, married Ann FOWLER on 30 March 1749 in London. His son George BALSTON, born 1754, also a Goldsmith, married Elizabeth RUSHFORTH in London on 30 January 1783. Their son Francis BALSTON became a Captain in the Hon. East India Company Navy and married Catherine Anne WILLIAMS. Their son Francis Edward BALSTON married Annie Johane WEEBER in Calcutta and they had a son named Francis Charles Pinney BALSTON who was born in Calcutta in about 1840. Francis Balston and Catherine had two other sons, Edwin William Balston (b. 21 June 1842) and Charles Henry Balston (b. 13 September 1828), Both of the latter were born in Capetown, South Africa.

I am interested in tracing and BALSTON issue in India or South Africa of either Francis Edward, Edwin William or Charles Henry, or alternatively any issue of Captain Francis Balston and Catherine Williams.
Anyone out there able to help?
