  1. Dear Karen,

    This has been super useful for my daughter’s family tree research – thank you!

    Richard Hammersley Heenan was my daughter’s great x3 grandfather

    Richard Hammersley Heenan – My great-great-grandfather
    John Nelson Dundas Heenan – My great-grandfather
    David Nelson Dundas Heenan – My grandfather
    Susan Carol Drummond Heenan – My mum
    Tom – Me!
    Lottie – my daughter

    Thanks again,
    Tom and Lottie

    PS. My wife’s email is a better bet than mine

  2. Hi! Thank you so much for writing this post!

    I’m conducting research for the development of the Noor Mahal Museum in Bahawalpur (referred to as Bhawulpoor above) and was wondering where I could find more information on the Heenan brothers’ time in India. Many of the local sources I have found name the architect of the Noor Mahal as a “Mr. Heenan”, referring to him as an “Englishman” (probably conflating British and English) who was the state engineer at the time. Any leads would greatly help me in compiling the history of the palace and perhaps I could be of some use to you as well in tracing the footsteps of the Heenan brothers.

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Best wishes,
    Doa Khan
