Where is the place?

The images to the left show a document discovered by my father, which his father had written.  It confirms much of what I had discovered, but the two brothers who died in The East Indies and  On Passage home from India were a puzzle.  Not least because ‘Blessery’ did not seem to exist.

After a lot of research and equiries I am now fairly sure that Blessery is actually Bellary, since John Kendalls death is recorded there:

John Kendall, 38, Sgt 63rd Foot, buried Bellary 3.12.1845, cholera.

Thanks to Donald Jaques for this information
