Sir Thomas 
Rumbold
1736 - 1791


Sir Thomas 
Rumbold
, aide de camp to Robert Clive at the Battle of Plassey. One of the most notorious of the nabobs. Originally in Bengal, he was commended by Clive as one of the best of the junior servants of the East India Company. He became rich in Bengal, but after his appointment as Governor of Madras in 1777, he became very much richer - and by dubious means. He left his property to the children by his second wife.
