Indo-Briton’s School

The Christ Church Anglo Indian School (also called Thomas Waller School) which was started in 1850’s in the Mount Road.

In a reference to its East Indian congregation, a footnote to a brief history of the Church says, “At the beginning of the 19th Century, they were called Indo-Britons, in the second and third quarters of the century they were known as East Indians, in the fourth quarter they were known as Eurasians, and they are now (early 20th Century) called Anglo-Indians. These changes were made at their request”. It might have added that it is male European lineage that determines the Anglo-Indian. from the pages of The Hindu.
