Notes Rober Orme, a British historian, was appointed as a Member of the Council at Fort St. George, Madras between 1754 and 1758, and in that capacity was instrumental in the sending of a young Robert Clive as the head of a military expedition in 1757 to Calcutta to avenge the alleged Black Hole incident of 1756. He wrote History of the Military Transactions of the British Nation in Indostan from 1745 (1763-78). He also published Historical Fragments of the Mogul Empire, the Morattoes and English Concerns in Indostan from 1659 (1782). His collections relating to India are preserved at the India Office.
