Biography: CHARLES BATHURST was appointed by the Directors in 1806. He was probably an undergraduate at Cambridge at the time of his nomination, for at that time Simeon selected the candidates. On arrival at Madras he was sent to Masulipatam; after six years he fell a victim to the climate in common with many other Europeans, and died in 1813. The officers of the garrison erected a monument to his memory in the Church within the Fort.
