Foreign Secretary to the Government of India, in which capacity he attended
Lord Hardinge throughout the 1st Sikh War and after Sobraon drew up, with Sir
H. Lawrence, the treaty with the Sikhs. He became a Baronet in 1847 and
succeeded Sir H. Lawrence as Resident at Lahore the next year, meantime
ofiBiciating as Member of the Supreme Council. He resumed his seat as Member
in 1849, retired in 1853, was made Director of the East Indian Company m 1854
and Chairman m 1857 ; Member of the Council of India from 1858 : D. C. L.
Oxford in 1866 and died in 1875.

The Currie family has sent many representatives to India. It is a branch
of the old Scotch family of Currie, and can trace its records back to William
Currie of Dunse in 1609. Through a succession of Williams and Marks the
line passes to Mark Currie (1759) of Hayes in Middlesex, father of Sir Frederick,
Edward and Alfred Peter, all H. E. I. C. S, (for A. P. Currie see No. 619).

[The Mutiny at Azamgarh began on the 3rd June 1857, and most of the

indigo planter of Ghazipur, marched into Azamgarh with a few sowars and
three non-official Europeans. He was given full magisterial powers. He attacked
the Palwars at KoeJsa without success. On the 18th July he was reinforced
and attacked the Palwars again : and though he was driven back, the enemy
suffered severely and disappeared. On the 28th July Azamgarh was once more
evacuated : but Mr. Venables joined the approach. ng Gurkha force, and the
enemy, compelled to retreat, were defeated at Mandoni by Captain Boileau and
Mr. Venables on the 20th September. Mr. Venables went on to Lucknow with
General Franks, but returned to Azamgarh when it was threatened by Kunwar

there is no other Bury in the lists, the occurrence of Nazing in the birth certi-
ficate proves it.]

rained without cessation from the 16th to the 19th September and about 25 .
inches fell in the last 40 hours. The soil was saturated wherever the loose debris
of shale allowed the water to penetrate. The first shp occurred about 10 a.m.,..

Victoria Hotel and burying m the ruins an English child and its nurse and some
native servants. Mr. L. Taylor, Mr. Morgan and some officers and soldiers from

uncle, C. P. Carmichael, C.S.I., was Commissioner of Benares ; another uncle,
D. P. Carmichael, was a member of the Madras Council, whilst there have al so
been representatives in the North- Western Provinces Police and the Indian

ancestor held the barony of Carmichael from the Earl of Douglas and Mar,
His descendanii William was created Baron Carmichael in 1647 ; and the latter's
grandson, John, was made Earl of Hyndford in 1701. These titles became
