John Freke PALMER was born on 17th September 1794 in Colyton, Devon. He joined the British Army and was stationed in India where his daughter Ellen Jane was born on 16th September 1836. Ellen’s baptism record at Cannanore, Madras on 21st December states that her mother’s name was Jane. Jane died in 1838 and was buried on 24th May in Bangalore at the age of 33. John remarried (Catherine ANDREW) on 21st January 1842 in Truro, Cornwall. What I am unable to find is the marriage between John and Jane and so am unable to discover her maiden name.
