Robert Ellesmore was in journalism, a sub-editor of the "Statesman" before his death in Calcutta in 1932. He married twice; first to Lena Helen Mabel Robertson (b.1880 in Calcutta)in Lucknow in 1902 issue Denis Fitzsimmons Dunbar b. 1903 in Calcutta; then to Hesther Caroline Madden about 1910 - three issue - Nigel Gordon, Aline Athelie and Joan. The two wives were first cousins being grandaughters of James Stuart Robertson and Hesther Priscilla Walter.
Although information re the Robertsons in slowly trickling in, Dunbars in India remain elusive.
Information re journalism is difficult to come by even though Robert spent his whole life in India and you would think there was some trace of his work either with the 'Englisman' and 'Statesman' newspapers.
I feel this Dunbar family were fairly early arrivals to West Bengal possibly in the early 1800s, and some remained until after partition in 1947. One day perhaps I will discover why they are so elusive!
