We found out a lot about Thomas II from The India Office Records at the British Library. Its 'Ecclesiastical Records' contain details of BMDs for Europeans resident in India from the early 17th century. These are not available online although some military records can be searched through the Access 2 Archives site. A really helpful page for family historians with Indian interests can be found at www. bl.uk/collections/ oiocfamilyhistory/ family.html.
