John M’Clelland married as far as can be ascertained relatively late in life. It is possible that his wife, Sophie Rosina, was one of the women who went to India seeking a husband. He was 37 years older than her.
He retired on 24th November 1865. Possibly he was already on leave in England at that time, as their son, John Gordon was baptised on 3rd November 1865 in Hampshire.
