Hi The following people are supposed to be the descendants of Lord Ballandean of Edinborough, Scotland. Matthew John BALLANTYNE was born in South Australia in 1952 and his sister Erica was born in 1956. Their mother, Janette Philomena BALLANTYNE was unmarried and has never revealed the name of the father. Janette was born in 1937 to an Anglo-Indian Herbert James BALLANTYNE and wife. He resided in Bangalore, India and was a lawyer then a minister. He left India in 1947 with his wife and 19 children (Janette, Stephen, Murdoch, Winston, Prudence, Henry, Thomas, Madeline and others. Some were born in Australia). They moved to Perth, Australia where they set up a chicken farm but eventually were forced to close because of the construction of the Perth to Adelaide railway. They moved to Sydney then to South Australia. Herbert's father was a Commissioner of Police in 1898 at Banglohore, Bangalore, in the Rawpindi Province of India.
I would appreciate any information on any of these people. In particular, I need to know who the father of Matthew is. Thankyou everyone :))))))) Belinda Turvey
