Notes on the Geography of Peninsular India: Chennai/Madras 4: The Old English Burial Ground: Photo 11
A man, his wife, and his four children are drowned at sea. Julian Cotton's List of Inscriptions on Tombs or Monuments in Madras,, 1905, has this note (p. 43): "Mr. Hope was a merchant and shopkeeper at Madras and few men have ever left India with a fairer character or a larger fortune: few men, even in more elevated situations, did half the good that this honest man did, since he was as liberal and kind-hearted as he was modest and unassuming. He was a passenger in the fleet with General MacDowall in 1809, when he perished in the gale which destroyed nearly a whole squadron off the Cape."
