Leather Prior of Norwich

I am trying to trace the family of Col William Boyes PRIOR. He married Lucy HAMBLIN (Date unknown) and served in India, where his daugther Mary Ruth was born in 1859. Family papers refer to an Uncle, a solicitor in Norwich, who may be Leather Prior. I am wondering if this is a brother of Mary Ruth (he was born in India too, about 1864). I also have a photo from Bombay of a grave of an Anna Sophia, wife of Col James Cavan Berkely. Anna was born 1841 (and died 1886), and from the wording on the back of the photo, I wonder if this too was a sister of Mary Ruth. Mary Ruth married 1) Capt Mackenzie and 2) James Russell, who later became Lord Provest of Edinburgh.
I would love to hear from anyone who can provide links in this story
