William was born in Singapore in 1841, the first child of Joachim who was the first son of Sir Jose D'Almeida, one of Singapore's earliest and most influential fathers. I have recently uncovered some hitherto lost correspondence from and to William together with extracts from letters he wrote in the 1860s and 70s. There are also some interesting photographs dating from 1861. I am willing to share this valuable resource with both Singaporean and European researchers. Please do not hesitate to post a record of your interest.
