The Hon David R. Arbuthnott, CSI. Born at Arbuthnott House 13 April 1820. Baptized 5 May 1820. Died 27 July 1901. Tax collector of Bellary, India, magistrate at Bellary and political agent, late of the Madras Civil Service and Sevillian. He had illegitimate children by (almost certainly different) Indian women as follows


Robert Arbuthnott. Later adopted the middle name Brotherton. Born 15 November 1842. Baptized 5 May 1848. Died Cuddapah 30 November 1881. Civil engineer. Overseer and later Supervisor of the Public Works Department (DPW). Later involved in famine relief work. Married in Madras 31 October 1866 (N/2 47/419) Georgiana Wilhelmina Ray (born 5 September 1848 [per Madras Almanac 1849, p.464]; died 1 November 1884 "widow"), second daughter of William Ray (born 1803/4; died 11 February 1852).
William Ray is variously described as manager, clerk, or writer in the Town Major's Office, Black Town, Madras. That means that he probably ran or oversaw the administrative/clerical side of the Town Major's office [A]. The Town Major was a military post overseeing the unattached list of NCOs (called conductors and sub-conductors in Indian army parlance) who worked in areas such as the commissariat, bazaar supply and army stud. Anyhow, he married first, as a bachelor, on 18 October 1833 at Black Town Chapel (C of E), Madras, Matilda Taylor, a widow (N/2/15, f. 267). She died Madras 25 August 1838. The index entry for it (N/2/19, f. 40) gives her name as 'Matilda Elvina Ray', and the 'Elvina' of course pops up again with Ray's daughter by his second marriage, Florence Elvina. William & Matilda had a dau Matilda Elvena Ray, died Madras 16 January 1839. William married secondly as a widower, on 29 July 1840, at Black Town Chapel, Madras, Charlotte Fitzgerald (born 1824/5; died 26 July 1852), a spinster (N/2/20, f. 37). The witnesses at the wedding were C. Berlie, M. Berlie, and R.P. Dalgairns. Interestingly, C. Berlie was an auditor in the Military Auditor General's Office in Madras. One 'John Berry' worked in the same office in this era. William & Charlotte had three daughters, the third being Florence Elvena [sic] Ray.

(A) Gladson William Ray Arbuthnot. Born 25 August 1867. Bap Blacktown church, Madras 9 October 1867.   Died 7 December 1867.
(B) (Mary) Annabel ("Ella") Arbuthnott. Born 31 December 1868. Entered into a relationship, c.1882, with her half-uncle James Arbuthnott, qv below, and had issue.
(C) Clementina Ray ("Clarence") Arbuthnott. Born Madras 7 April 1871 (N/2/52, f. 71, Eurasian). Died Kotagiri 15 March 1941 - the joint headstone 'Errected (sic) by their sorrowing children' which survives intact describes them as Mark Flo (stonemason's error for Fk.?) and Clementina Elizabeth Arbuthnott.  Denise advises that she was a staunch protestant all her life and that there was no headstone in 1944. She had children by (marriage cert not found) Mark Frank d'Vaz (born on a plantation near Ooty, India 18 April 1867, died Kotagiri, India 1 May 1936, buried in the cemetery of St Mary's RC Church at Kotagiri, Dennis and Denise both think he was born Mark Florence d'Vaz), a Eurasian who changed his name to Mark Frank Arbuthnott between 1911 & 1923; RMA's marriage certificate shows his father as "Mark Arbuthnott". Mark was a clerk in Ootacamund at least until the birth of Bernie in 1911, when the family was still using the name d'Vaz and appears to have had no coffee plantation - or at least not one providing a steady income and a place of abode. This encourages us to think that it was not Robert Brotherton Arbuthnott who left property to Clementina and her sisters, but his brother James. The estates do not appear in the planting directories until the early 1930s. The family name change may have been tied to the inheritance but is more likely to have been done simply to try to escape the stigma of being Eurasian; with D'Vaz for a surname there would have been no doubt that one was Eurasian but such an assumption could not be made with Arbuthnott. He was running a small coffee estate, Kambatti, next to Araingay in 1937 (per Planting Directory, S India 1937).

(F) (Constance) Daisy Arbuthnott. Born 26 December 1877. Baptized 2 January 1878. One source suggests she was a twin (which she wasn't) who committed suicide in her 20s (which we doubt). Another says she married Ken Stubbs.
(G) Violet ("Etta") Elaine Arbuthnott. Born Madras 11 January 1880.
(H) Millicent (later Maud) Arbuthnott. Claimed to be born Madras 17 July 1888 (adult conditional baptism N/2/111/41, no "Maud") to Robert and Alice Arbuthnot of Cuddapah. She was left a coffee estate in Khotagiri, Nilgiris probably 'by her uncle James' (therefore post 1910), which was sold 1936-37. But it seems she was unclear who she was.  At her wedding (N/2/124, 39) her age has changed. She is now 27 on 3 July 1918, which would give a birth year of 1890/91, has acquired Maud as an extra forename and an extra 't' for her surname. We think she was much older, possibly a late posthumous child of Robert Brotherton Arbuthnott who died November 1881. Assuming she was born in mid-1882, she would have been 43 or so when she gave birth to her second child in 1925. Another possibility is that she was the illegitimate daughter of the widow Georgiana Wilhelmina, and hence was born a bit later, in 1883 or 1884. Georgiana cannot have found it easy trying to bring up six girls by herself. Acquiring a male protector would have been almost essential for her. Perhaps that's why she died in Pondicherry. She went there to have her last baby discreetly and she died not long after its birth. Or, a third possibility, she was actually the illegitimate daughter of one of her older 'sisters'. Mary Annabel and Clementina Ray were both old enough to have given birth to her in 1883 or 1888. It is speculation, but there are inconsistencies in the evidence that Millicent produced on two separate occasions and these are consistent with her not knowing the full story of her origins. The evidence for her six sisters being the known daughters of RB and GW is so strong that we have to assume that it was Millicent who got it wrong about 'Robert and Alice' being her parents. If she was born in mysterious circumstances and was brought up by a charity, then she is unlikely to have been told the full truth of her parentage. She was certainly brought up (by James and Ella) as being the youngest sister.
Millicent died Calcutta 22 December 1944. She worked for the Post & Telegraph Service c.1917.  Married in St Andrew's Church, Madras 3 July 1918 George Harpin (born Bannock 2 March 1885), son of William Harpin. He was a sergeant in the British Army, later joined the British Police and later went to a tea estate. George worked in Mussulipatum c.1933. George and Millicent died and were buried in India.

William came home and left her there to spend the rest of her life in Norway. She was quite a character, inspired great affection amongst the Norwegians (who gave her the courtesy title of "lady", perhaps because they have no word for 'Honourable') and much folk-lore and a musical arose around her eccentricities. She introduced modern plumbing to the rural areas of Norway, wrote an exhaustive textbook called "The Henwife" and was known as the uncrowned Queen of Sunndalen.
