To Simon Heard-White,

I am replying to your query for a lost person, which I saw on the Britain-Burma Society's Lost Relatives web page (http://shwepla.net/Misspers.mv). You said:

William Henry Heard-White born 21/1/1871 in Rangoon (his father was John Heard married Eleanor White hence the name Heard-White we think that John Heard was a private in 54th foot regiment of the East India Company who I also believe set sail for India on the 'The Sarah Sands' ).

William Henry married Emma Pauline Walker, a widow on 28 March 1894. They were married in the Wesley Church in Mandalay.

William Henry Heard-White was my great grandfather who lived in Prome or Pyay as it is known who eventally ended up working for the Forestry Commission in Burma he was know to people who knew him as Old Man Heard-White.

William Henry Heard-White's brother whose name is unknown was a Judge and was eventally ended up being a 'Private Secretary' to the last King of Burma Thebaw Min after he died they built a 'light house' in somewhere in Burma as a remembrance to him.

If anyone knows about the family and relatives that make up a clearer picture who is alive/ lived or died in Burma we would be happy to receive that information since we still have family that changed their names to Burmese one's after 1949 a sort of lost generation still living there.

My family left Burma as Anglo-Burmans and the Majority in 1949 for England soon after independence.

Any information would be very kindly appreciated.

Maybe I can help a bit.
