Is it possible to find Seraphina's marriage? It would be interesting to know her maiden name. Could she have been Portuguese?

I've been looking, OC, but no luck so far. Donclere must be a variant of some other name as there are hardly any matches to it anywhere. Of course we don't know for sure that she was married as "Mrs" didn't necessarily mean married in those days.

There was a lot of Portuguese in India OC and there still is, a lot of our friends out there have Portuguese names. There is an Italian Saint with her name.

It's odd that this said Seraphina Donclere died intestate:

Doncler...Du Clerque?

The idea that Seraphina ws a typically submissive Indian woman is fast evaporating in my mind anyway! She made a will and even if William prompted that, it shows a level of education.

What happened to the sister?

What a fascinating story this is turning into!

Has anyone found anything about Seraphina's other daughter, Charlotte Hunter?

Oh, durh..... Don is a spanish/ portuguese surname or form of address so she could be Seraphina Don Cler!

Why was the older daughter's surname Hunter, I wonder?
