William Taylor, Esq. got married to Amelia, second daughter of the late Francis Inglis, Esq., on 15 June 1844. William Taylor was based in Howrah, 24 Parganas. P. Homfray served as proctor after his death.

Francis Inglis (1772-1814) had been appointed as accountant and cashier at the Establishment in 1790. The Fort Marlborough, located in Bengkulu City, Sumatra, was built in the early 1700s by the East India Company, under Joseph Collett. It was transferred to Dutch control by the Anglo-Dutch Treaty of 1824. Francis Inglis’s youngest son, Charles Hugh Inglis, Esq. (1811-1830), is buried in the South Park Street Cemetery.
