Sir Charles Alfred Elliott

Sir Charles Alfred Elliott KCSI (8 December 1835 – 28 May 1911) was a Lieutenant Governor of Bengal.


  • [Sir Charles Elliot, the Lieutenant-Governor of Bengal, described missionaries of all Churches as forming an] “un-recognised and unofficial branch of the great movement which alone justifies British rule in Southern Asia”. The oficers of Government have to treat all alike in religious matters, and to show no more consideration for one faith than for another, though they know right well that the only hope for the true development and elevation of the peoples lies in the evangelisation of India. Only the missionaries are carrying on that work, filling up what is deficient in the efforts of the Government."
