Theodore Forbes

The Times of India of Jun 16, 2013 reported the following article on connections between Prince William and an Indian woman who was the wife of one Theodore Forbes. The important paragraph near the end of the article hints at a connection between Theodore and Sir Charles Forbes of Newe

‘Scientists announced that the future king of England has Indian blood in him and is a direct descendent of part-Indian Eliza Kewark, who was a house keeper for his great-great-great-great-great grandfather Theodore Forbes, a Scottish merchant who worked for the East India Company in Surat.

Researchers have sourced William’s Indian ancestry to Eliza Kewark, his great-great-great-great-great grandmother, who was assumed to be Armenian, but now has been revealed as an Indian by genetic research.

Eliza, who was born circa 1790, lived conjugally with Theodore Forbes, a Scottish merchant working for the East Indian Company.

Theodore had been offered a partnership in Forbes & Co, a trading company based in Bombay, where the senior partner was Sir Charles Forbes, a distant relative’


The following article is therefore an exploration of the story of Theodore Forbes, a description of the link between him and Prince William, followed by the full family tree which links Theodore to the family of Forbes of Newe by two connections. Interestingly there is also a family link to ‘Old Glenbucket’ himself, John Gordon of Glenbucket. There is also a further interesting connection with the Crombie family of Aberdeen, famous for Crombie cloth. The Forbes family need not get too excited however as the link originates about 1350

The full story from the Telegraph India , highlights the problem of mixed marriages. The initial Scots adventurers were happy to mix with the locals and often intermarry. However as British Society became established these liaisons were frowned upon.

The anguished plea of a desperate wife and mother marks the culmination of a tumultuous love story that was ultimately scarred by the social attitudes to race and marriage in colonial India.

“Our beloved Kitty and Alexander thank God they are in good health and often hope to see their beloved father,” Eliza Kewark wrote to Theodore Forbes.

Theodore was a wealthy Scottish merchant who had made his fortune in India in the early 19th century. Theodore arrived in India in 1809 as an employee of the East India Company looking for adventure and fortune. The 21-year-old merchant was posted to the port city of Surat, (Surat, previously known as Surya, is a city in the Indian state of Gujarat.) where he met Eliza through her brother-in-law, Aratoon Baldassier, who was acting as his agent.

Theodore described Eliza several times as a “girl”, suggesting that she may have been several years his junior. Eliza’s father was Jacob Kevork, or Hakob Kevokian, a very Armenian name, but there is no record of her mother. However, DNA test results show that she was Indian.

There had been a thriving Armenian trading community in Surat since the 17th century and there was some inter-marriage with the local population. When Theodore met Eliza it was common for British men to begin relationships with Indian women and to have children, even if they already had a family back in Britain.

Susan Harvard, who has been researching Eliza and Theodore’s relationship for almost 30 years, believes that the couple were married in the Armenian Church in Surat in early 1812, shortly before he was posted to Mocha in current-day Yemen. However, it may not have been legally recognised. In his notebook, Theodore refers to Eliza as “the very pattern of what a wife ought to be” and in his letters addresses her as “My Dear Betsy”.

Their daughter Katherine (Kitty) Scott Forbes was born in Mocha in December 1812 and their son, Alexander, two years later. Eliza returned to Surat in 1815 and a second son, Fraser, was born in March 1817 but died aged six months.

Theodore had been offered a partnership in Forbes & Co, a trading company based in Bombay, where the senior partner was Sir Charles Forbes, a distant relative. But there had been a significant change in colonial society. An influx of British women to India had led to a change in social attitudes, with relationships with local women now considered inappropriate for the merchant class.

While Theodore worked in Bombay his wife, Kitty and Alexander were left in Surat.

Years later, a packet of letters was unearthed at Boyndlie, written in a non-European language that nobody recognized. They turned out to be the heartfelt letters written by Eliza from India to the child in Scotland she was destined never to see again.

In a series of pitiful letters, Eliza begged to be allowed to join her husband. In October 1817 she wrote of her hope that “Our Almighty may do so the lucky day as connect our eyes to eyes. Our children as they hope be make them love at your present will. I entreat you my dear sir you may call from hence as soon as possible. Then will be happy and save my life.”

The letters, which appear to have been written by a scribe in Surat, were signed “Mrs Forbes” followed by her title written in Armenian, presumably by herself. But in earlier letters she and Kitty both wrote in Hindi, suggesting a mixed heritage.

The following February she appealed for money for the family, describing Theodore’s “prosperous face with your merciful eyes” and how she prayed for “lucky day as we can meet to each another”. In a postscript she added: “Kitty and Alexander often ask after you their beloved Papa and I let you know they are in good health.” A week later she wrote again, seeking a reply to her letter.

In June 1818, Theodore’s friend Thomas Fraser wrote to him after visiting the family in

So Theodore decided that his daughter, then 6, should be sent to his family home at Boyndlie, Aberdeenshire, where there would be less sun.( Boyndlie lies a half-mile (1 km) west of Tyrie and 5½ miles (9 km) southwest of Fraserburgh. Boyndlie comprises the small hamlet of Upper Boyndlie, Boyndlie House and the farm of Nether Boyndlie.)

Eliza reluctantly accepted this plan but insisted that her faithful servant, Fazagool, accompany her daughter to Scotland. In another letter, she pleaded again to be allowed to rejoin her husband, writing: “My good sir, I pray you let me know by your leave I will bring my child to give in your hand by myself and after Kitty is dispatched to Europe then stay in Bombay or stay in Surat.”

It is Eliza’s final surviving letter to Theodore, so it is possible that the couple were reunited in Bombay. Kitty left for Scotland in August 1819 and Theodore decided to return to Britain the following year, but died aboard the Blenden Hall in September 1820.


In his will, written aboard the ship, Theodore refers to Eliza as his “housekeeper” and leaves her a monthly allowance of just Rs 100 a month, less than half the sum she had been receiving. Theodore left Kitty, his “reputed natural daughter by Eliza Kewark”, Rs 50,000. His “reputed son” Alexander received Rs 20,000 and his father stated that he should remain in India.

Life for Kitty at Boyndlie would have been very different from her home in Surat. Harvard said: “I don’t think her grandparents would have encouraged her to talk about her past because it could have given the impression that she was illegitimate and ‘coloured’.”

Mary Roach, the maternal aunt of Diana, Princess of Wales, agrees: “My mother appeared to have no knowledge of (Kitty’s Indian mother), so perhaps it was hidden.”

Kitty later married James Crombie, a member of the family that manufactured coats, and was a respected member of Scottish society.

Eliza was last heard of in 1834 when she wrote to Charles Forbes complaining that the annuity left by her “beloved master” had been halved. Charles Forbes forwarded her letter to her children but there is no record of a reply.

In a footnote to history, the current Earl Spencer, the brother of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, has named two of his daughters Eliza and Kitty.

The connection between Theodore Forbes and Prince William is therefore as follows:

Kewark had three children with Theodore Forbes after he arrived in India, working for the East India Company.
One of their children, Katherine Forbes , became a well-respected member of society in Scotland and marriedJames Crombie, a member of the family that manufactured the coats of the same name, in Aberdeen, in March 1837.
The pair had eight children including Jane Crombie, who was born in November 8, 1843, and married David Littlejohn.
Their daughter, Ruth Littlejohn, was born in 1879, who married Colonel William Smith Gill in 1898.
Ruth Littlejohn then gave birth to Ruth Sylvia Gill eight years after the turn of the century, who lived until July 6, 1993.
She became styled as Baroness Fermony after she married Edmund Burke Roche, 4th Baron Fermoy, in September 1931.
She held the office of Justice of the Peace between June 1956 and March 1960, before she became the Woman of the Bedchamber to HM Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, and was invested as a Dame Commander, Royal Victorian Order, in 1966.
Among her children was Princess Diana's mother, the Hon Frances Burke Roche, born on January 20, 1936, in Sandringham, Norfolk.
She married Edward John Spencer , 8th Earl Spencer, and they had five children together, including Diana Spencer, before they divorced in 1969.
Frances then went on to marry Peter Shand Kydd.
Diana married Prince Charles son of Queen Elizabeth and their son is Prince William.
William married Catherine Middleton and their son is George.


More background information to the Theodore Forbes story from a Daily Mail article


“The East India Company was a phenomenon, a huge business enterprise that in effect ruled a subcontinent from the 17th to the 19th centuries. It raised private armies, employed generals, fought pitched battles against other European colonists, founded towns and made vast fortunes for those involved. For young men hoping to make their way in the world of the burgeoning British Empire, it was one of the most exciting, dynamic and promising avenues to success. The Company traded in silk, cotton, opium, indigo dye, saltpetre and tea, and after its famous general, Robert Clive, defeated the French at Plassey in 1757, it ran India as a virtual monopoly. When Henry Dundas became President of the Board of Control in 1784, he began to appoint Scotsmen to key positions, so much so that by the end of the 18th century, they dominated the activities of the East India Company, their connections reaching back to Scotland.

The estate of Boyndlie lies about five miles south-west of Fraserburgh in the north-east corner of Aberdeenshire. As the third son of a Scottish landowner, Forbes needed to make his fortune elsewhere and like many ambitious young men, he went to India to do just that. When Theodore Forbes came to Leith to work, he probably came into contact with the tea merchants who brought tea to Britain in the tea clippers, the wonderful sailing ships. Perhaps the Cutty Sark is the best known. Scottish entrepreneurs had invested so heavily in the Indian tea industry that it outstripped production in China.

No doubt through contacts made in Leith, Theodore was promised a position with the East India Company and he boarded a ship bound for the Bombay Presidency. India had been divided into three presidencies or provinces and the others were centred on Calcutta and Madras.

In his early twenties, Theodore set up house, probably in Surat, a major port north of Bombay itself, and he employed a housekeeper. She was Eliza Kewark, an Indian woman probably only two years younger. Her Christian name was almost certainly an anglicised version of Aleeza or Aliza. Not uncommon in the north-west of the subcontinent, it can mean ‘Precious’, or more prosaically, ‘the daughter of Ali’. In 1812 Eliza and the 24 year-old Scotsman had a child, a girl named Katharine Scott Forbes after Theodore’s mother. The baby’s birth was registered at Surat. It seems that the couple’s relationship was stable and settled, a genuine marriage, for they went on to have more children and make a family. Two years after Katharine’s birth, Alexander Scott Forbes was born and given another family Christian name. And there appears to have been a third child although no details have been thus far unearthed. But it is believed that Eliza gave birth to another daughter.

Through their early childhood, Katharine, Alexander and their sibling were raised in the bustling port of Surat and almost certainly their mother taught them to speak and read Gujerati or another native language. There exists no record that Theodore and Eliza ever married. However, such liaisons were not unusual; one in three British men working in India in the late 18th and early 19th centuries married Indian women.

When Katharine was eight years old and Alexander six, their father boarded the SS Blenden Hall, a merchant ship bound for Britain. The reason for his voyage remains unknown but perhaps he planned to bring his family back to Scotland. But on 24th September 1820, Theodore Forbes died on board and was buried at sea. He was only 32 years old. Sometime after news of this calamity reached both Scotland and Surat, a decision was made to bring Katharine and Alexander back to Aberdeenshire and the estate at Boyndlie. There must have been communication between the Forbes family and Eliza Kewark, for there exists no record of her third child going to Scotland. Only Katharine and Alexander made the long journey to Boyndlie, the home of grandparents and uncles and aunts they had never met. Their mother must have stayed behind in India and nothing more is known of Eliza Kewark – except for two details that brings alive the agonies of a mother being parted from her children, of seeing them board a ship to travel half a world away, probably never to be seen again.

Alexander became so homesick for Surat, his mother and his little sister that the Forbes family allowed and no doubt paid for him to return to India. Apparently this happened only a short time after the six year-old’s arrival in Aberdeenshire. The contrast between Surat and Boyndlie can only be imagined. Many years later a bundle of letters was found. Written not in English but probably in Gujerati, they had been sent by Eliza to the daughter she was destined never to see again. Perhaps they carried news to Scotland of Katharine’s brother and little sister. They also inherited the DNA of their mother, and if the third child was indeed a daughter, then it may have been passed down the generations in India. And in Britain, there is no doubt that shared mtDNA lived on in Katharine Forbes and her descendants.

In the early 19th century and on into the Victorian age, illegitimacy was perhaps less of a stigma in the fermtouns of Scotland than it might have been in the genteel drawing rooms of the cities. Much more of a problem would have been the taint of ‘coloured blood’. But since Katharine’s father had died and her mother remained thousands of miles away in India, it may be that Eliza Kewark’s ethnicity was not an immediate difficulty. Later, she was said to have been an Armenian, perhaps because Kewark could be parlayed into Kevork, an Armenian surname. Nevertheless, Eliza’s existence was not forgotten or expunged from the family tree. Perhaps that was Katharine’s doing, a stubborn unwillingness to deny her mother, the woman who had born and raised her for eight years in Surat. It is impossible to do more than guess at what was said and what was not.

In any event, Theodore and Eliza’s daughter, by this time known as Kitty, married James Crombie in Aberdeen. She was 25 years old. Her family may have remained pillars of the Scottish middle classes had Katharine’s great-granddaughter, Ruth, not married into the aristocracy. Her husband was Maurice Burke Roche, 4th Baron Fermoy, an Irish peer. Ruth became a longstanding member of the household of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. In 1954 her daughter, Frances, married Edward, Viscount Althorp (later Earl Spencer) and in 1961 gave birth to a daughter, Diana Spencer. A year after her marriage to Prince Charles in 1981, she in turn gave birth to a son, Prince William. In the direct female line, Eliza Kewark’s mitochondrial DNA had been passed down to the heir second in line to the throne of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.”

The Crombie connection
From ‘The Crombies of Fetternear’
The founder of the great weaving firm was one John Crombie, born into humble circumstances in Fetternear in 1772, the illegitimate son of James Crombie and Margaret Copland. The Kirk Session minutes for Chapel of Garioch parish record that, on the 20th of September 1772, James appeared before the congregation to be rebuked for ‘ante nuptial fornication’ and pay the statutory four shilling fine.

As a young man, John was apprenticed to Kilgour & Co., a weaving firm in Old Deer, where his talents were quickly recognised: by 1800 he had moved from the shop floor to the counting house where his career continued to prosper. Then, in 1805, he and three partners set up the firm of Crombie, Knowles & Co.in Newmachar, and the concern that would evolve into Crombie’s famous woollen mill was born.

John’s marriage to Catharine Harvey, daughter of the wealthy farmer of Moneykebbock, Newmachar, produced a large family that included the two sons, James and John, who would be partners in the next generation of the business, after it moved to Grandholm in 1859 and became known as J & J Crombie Ltd. Under the brothers’ management, Crombie would grow to be the biggest woollen manufacturer in the country.

James Crombie was an exceptionally successful businessman to whom Crombie owes much of its subsequent success. In 1837, he married the fascinating Kitty Forbes, the daughter of an East India Company merchant by his Armenian Indian girlfriend, the exotic Eliza Kevork. The combination of mixed race and illegitimacy then carried a stigma that would be unrecognizable to us today and it testifies to Crombie’s sheer strength of character that this attractive couple overcame this.

The Forbes Family of Newe and Theodore Forbes do indeed have a family connection but it dates back to a common ancestor John Forbes ‘of the Black Lip’ who was born about 1350.

His first son William of Kinaldie became the ancestor who formed the Newe family and his fourth son Alexander went on to found the Boyndlie side of the family.
