  • The East India Register & Directory for 1829 (Inadia Office & Burma office list) as found on Google Books for 1829, page 361 lists James Youd and John Youd. It also lists 3 youngs: Stephen, a farmer; Amoret, a carpenter; and Geo, a carpenter. It is possible one of these is related to the Youngs. Also the YON is close to the Youd.

  • Both the 1825 & 1829 editions of the East India Register list Edward Fowler as "Clerk of the Market" & William Fowler as sup. public sales. I do not know what these titles really meant. Ed Storey
