Lieutenant Colonel James Achilles Kirkpatrick was the British Resident in Hyderabad from 1798 to 1805. He also built the historic Koti Residency in Hyderabad, a landmark and major tourist attraction. He married a local Hyderabadi noblewoman called Khair-un-Nissa. Towards the end of the autumn of 1801, a major scandal broke out in Calcutta over Kirkpatrick's behaviour at the Hyderabad court. It raised a major furore because of the interracial nature of the marriage. They had three children: a daughter called Kitty Kirkpatrick and two sons called Mir Ghulam Ali and Sahib Allum. He died in Calcutta in 1805.
