Fascinating! The post of Superintendant of Distilleries held by Charles Lamothe sounded to me like a government official and, sure enough, the Colonial Office Lists for Mauritius held by the Public Record Office show that the Revenue Branch of the Colonial Government had an inspectorate of distilleries.It was headed by a Chief Superintendant and/or one or two Superintendants. A "C.Lamothe" was one of two superintendants 1867-1876 and 1881-1889. He was sole head of the branch in 1877 and 1890-1892.The reason for the gap in his employment 1878-1880 is not clear. He was evidently not then employed in the Colonial Government because his name does not appear elsewhere in the Colonial Office Lists for Mauritius in those years. Could he have been on long service leave, say, in France?
