This presentation will provide a general introduction to the Honourable East India Company (HEIC). It will explore the roles and areas in which ancestors served. A case study will examine two generations of a family serving in the HEIC, including chaplains in Burma and India and ancestors in the Home Office. This will be a useful presentation to those with ancestors in the HEIC or those interested in the HEIC as it was an important part of the British Empire.
