half a Sikh corps, and when these were sent to Allahabad and replaced by the
47th Native Infantry, they too remained faithful, though suspected. On a false
alarm the majority of the European residents fled to Chunar : but the only seri-
ous events were those connected with Bhadohi and the murder of Mr. Moore.
Bhadohi belonged to the Raja of Benares, but the former Rajput owners had never-
been wholly uprooted, and now one of them, Udwaat Singh, assumed his ances-
tral title and commenced to raise forces and plunder his weaker neighbours. He
was, however, delivered up by his own Diwan to Lieutenant Palliser and his
sowars, and hanged. They vowed vengeance on Moore, the Joint Magistrate and
official Superintendent of the Raja's Domains, who they supposed was the
chief cause of the execution. On the 4th July he made a raid from Gopiganj
and arrested some prisoners whom he brought to an indigo factory at Pali. He
was at once surrounded by Jhuria Singh and a large body of men and he and
the two managers of the factory, E. S. Jones and C. M. Kemp, were murdered.-
Kemp was only 15 years old {vide nos. 759-60). His head was taken to the
widow of Udwant Singh : she had offered Rs. 300 for it. The bodies were re-
covered by a party of the 64th Regiment. The rebels were attacked but the teal
murderers escaped.]

To the memory of W. B. Salmon, Lieut -Col., 58th Regiment^
B. N. I., who departed this life on the 5th February 1843, aged 56
years, after a service of 39 years. This monument is exacted by
his brother officers as a tribute of their sii^cere esteem and respect.
[There is only one W. B. Salmon in Dodwell and Miles, so that it would
seem that this must be Will am Broome Salmon, Sir J. B. Hearsey's brother-in-
law. (Cf. nos. 551 and 850). Pearse says he died, a General, in England. This
seems certainly an error, in so far as his rank was concerned, though this may
of course be a cenotaph. All the facts given in the Services B. A. List about
W. B. Salmon correspond with those given by Pearse, whilst the date of death
is mentioned by the former. W. B. Salmon is stated to have been a captain in

1825, in command of the Resident's Bodyguard at Lucknow 1823 5 and

even as going on leave to the hills in 1827— all facts mentioned of Hearsey's
brother-in-law by Pearse ; so there can be little doubt of the idenlifi cation. He
was the son of G. Salmon born in 1787 and joined the service in 1803.]

Hugh Rose, of Kilravock in Scotland, a Civil Servant of the
H. E. I. Company, who died at this place on the 29th January 1847,
and is here interred.
[Hugh Rose, eldest son of Hugh Eose, of Kilravock, to Nairn, according to
Burke, " went to India where he became highly distinguished in the C. S.
in Bengal." Prinsep gives his most important post as that of settlement oificer
at Cawnpore (1839-41) : and he was magistrate of Banda when he died. This
Hugh was apparently the first of the family to go to India, but of his brothers
three served in India, all during the mutiny and two were killed, one at Gwalior
and one at Kaira in Bombay. Sir Hugh Rose, (Lord Strathnairn) was a kinsman.
Two sisters also married Anglo-Indians. The family is ancient, dating back to
the time of Alexander III ; and settled at Kilravock in the time of King John
Balliol, since when the estate has descended unbroken to the present owner.
The eldest son has apparently been a Hugh without any exception since the time
of John Balliol. The Rose Innes family of Netherdale and the Roses of Holme
Rose are junior branches of the same family.]

1862, in the 28th year of his age, much regretted by all who knew
him.
Fear not, for I have redeemed thee ; I have called thee by thy name ; thwi
art Mine.

[The 5th son of James Fairlie of Holms, co. Ayr, he was at Haileybury 1854-
6 and came to India 1857. Two of his brothers were also in the Indian Army.
The family is descended from Eobert de Ros, of Trabet, who obtained the Fairlie
lands from Eobert Bruce, and changed his name. This branch is descended from
a cadet of the family who lived circa 16(31. The Fairlies are connected with the
Huirs by marriage (cf . no. 545):, whether it is this branch I am however uncertain,
A. Jean Fairi.e married a John Muir of Netheraith, and died in 1829, but I
cannot identify the latter. At all events Fairlie appears in the names of a;
^Drother, son and grandson of Sir "William Muir ; whilst Slungo, another " Muir '*
dame is ^l^o co]j:i]UQn ^xaongst the Fairlies ; it was ihp uai&e of ^ brother of the

Jean mentioned and also of a brother of Edward Fairlie, amongst others, Hifl
probability is, therefore, that this Fairlie is a distant connection of the many
Muirs in this province.]
