My great great great Grandfather was Edward Barnaby Leicester was born in 1793 in Bencoolen (now Bengkulu), Sumatra, and moved to Singapore in the 1820's. His brother Robert Innocent, according to family history was sent to India by the British after Bencoolen was handed back to the Dutch. I believe that Robert Innocent's sons Robert and/or Robert Butcher possibly went to Singapore and then returned to Bengkulu. There were two R. Leicesters listed in the Dutch 1840 naamlijst (namelist), and one in the 1845 list.The Dutch records of 1865 (Naamlijst - Namelist) give the names of B., G., T. and A. Leicester, who are either the sons or grandsons.
I have not seen any later Dutch records and I wonder whether there are any Leicesters still in Indonesia. Could any resident of Indonesia (possibly in Sumatra) check local records or phone books and let me know. Terima kasih.
