Rhys CLAREMONT married ??. According to older family members he (Rhys) was an Englishman, minister/missionary who came to India with the Basel Mission and was stationed in Mangalore. We have no record of whom he married, but do know he had a son. He left India, and his son was given to the Basel Mission Boarding School, and he sent money for his son's upkeep. He died sometime in the 1920's, and is buried in Basel, Switzerland. Queries were sent from Basel to India seeking his heirs when he died, but as far as I know, no connection took place between those seeking his heirs and the family itself. The info I have on his descendants is as follows:

  1. David CLAREMONT (1891-93?), Lighthouse Superintendent of Mangalore, Lighthouse Superintendent of Tuticorin (?years unknown).
