    • (Research):Aileen 2009
      Charles Barns Wilkins had three children. His second child, eldest son Jacob was admitted to the Royal College of Surgeons in 1851. On 5 Feb 1856 Jacob married Judith Laura Montefiore and almost immediately left for India with the Indian Medical Service. Jacob spent most of his life in India and sadly died of dysentery, near Madras in 1879, aged 48, survived by his wife and 9 children, the youngest just a few months old.
      Jacob had two years furlough in England in the mid 1870s, probably before Nov 1875 when his mother was ill and died, to about the time his father Charles remarried in mid 1876. About that time Jacob changed his name to Gerald de Wilton and seems to have had little to do with his father from then on. They may have fallen out over his father marrying again so soon after Jacob's mother's death (to someone almost 30 years younger).

      I have some information about Jacob Wilkin's daughter, Consuela, and her son, Gerald Charles Binsteed. I have been studying the life of the latter and am interested to know if there are any descendants who have any information about him - or records of his travels. I have been continuing my research on Gerald Charles Binsteed, a descendant of Jacob Wilkins. April 8th 2015 was the 100th Anniversary of his death. I am attaching a paper I write about him two years ago. I have also received some information about him from Wellington School that he attended from 1889 to 1902. The College Historian, Ben Lewsley, sent me some photographs and a page from the 1915 Year Book and I attach these.
