To Andrew Turton,

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:

R.R. Langham-Carter
I am in final stages of writing, a 100,000 word introduction to the journals of missions by Dr. David Richardson and Captain W.C. McLeod in 1837 to the Shan states etc. from Moulmein.

As part of this I've written biographical chapters, chapters on the journals and the journeys, and a piece on Moulmein at the time (using int. al. the splendid weekly Maulmain Chronicle on microfilm in the BL). One key source for David Richardson (1796-1846) is copies of 16 letters from him to his father, in Wapping, from 1824-1838, which were copied in 1947 by R.R. Langham-Carter from those in the possession of Arthur Richardson, DR's youngest grandson whose father, Edward Richardon, had married Arthur Phayre's daughter. Arthur Richardson (1872-1965), the youngest child, was a retired policeman in Moulmein when L-C was posted there for a while in 1947. I would be most grateful for any advice as to how I might trace R.R. Langham-Carter BA, ICS, or his heirs and successors. On a JBRS members list of 1959 his address is given as c/o Commonwealth Office, London. He must have started in Burma in about the mid-1920s, as his first communication to JBRS was in 1929. He was D/Commr. Monywa ca. 1932, ditto Akyab ca.1936, Secretary to the Financial Commr., Rangoon ca. 1940-1. So much can be gathered from the members lists of JBRS for which he wrote a dozen or so articles, and was on the Executive committee for a while. He (or a namesake?) also wrote a small book on the old cathedral in Cape Town, published in 1977.

Maybe I can help a bit.
