I am trying to trace my Kalyaniwalla family roots. Thank you to those who kindly responded to my previous post (Looking for Mr Kalyaniwalla of Mumbai/London*) regarding my great grandfather.
I have received information on two leads, which I have detailed below. If you have any information about these people or their families please contact me (Kalyan Kingi) at WhatsApp +61402262959 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dr Cawas Naoroji Kalyaniwala
- His father, Naoroji Kalyaniwala, was an eminent doctor in Rajkot.
- His brother’s name was Framroze.
- He may have married an English woman, named Rose.
- The family surname may have originally been Nallaseth but changed to Kalyaniwala in about 17th Century, due to an influential lady marrying Dr Cowasji’s great great grandfather.
- Studied medicine in England
- Surgeon in Rajkot
