Saviel Family History

Saviel Family History
It would appear that the Saviel Family had been in India for many years and that they Originated from Europe.
The early entries look as though they decended from Manuel (Manoel) Saviel and Elizabeth Decruz who were married in Calcutta Mission Church Calcutta India on 8 Nov. 1770. They are clearly of Portuguess Origin and Catholics.
Which explains why we are only finding them spasmodically in the India Office Records which are primarily Church of England with few voluntary Catholic returns.

I am researching my greatgrandfather George Thomas Saviel who was born in India in 1827 and married first Sophia Mary Morley in Calcutta on 10 Jan. 1853 India.

He later married Rose Hnin Si in 1873 in Burma.

I would like to know if anyone know of his family in India and Burma .
Send me a message at my email address.
