Thomas Ernst Neumark-Jones (1841–1912) was born to German emigre parents in Hampstead, London. He attended Benjamin Jowett's Balliol and was interested in the teachings of the philosopher and Christian

mystic T. H. Green in his early years.


During the 1880s he became interested in Theosophy joined the Theosophical Society in London and knew H P Blavatsky personally.


After H P Blavatsky's death he travelled in India for four years to seek her new incarnation. It was his contention that H P Blavatsky had personally instructed him to look for her in the body of a Pondicherry street urchin. Annie Besant was extremely unimpressed by his claims.


By 1895 he was back in England, publishing an esoteric journal called Kayfabe. The journal attracted a number of highly regarded writers from the Rainbow Circle of British intellectuals, including L. T. Hobhouse and Leo Chiozza Money.


The journal didn’t really cover costs

but was funded with subscriptions raised from the breakaway Palmer's Green Theosophical Lodge, which Neumark-Jones founded himself.


Neumark-Jones never attracted a large following for his own branch of Theosophy, but there were claims that it had influential followers in the government of Herbert Asquith.


Towards the end of his life he returned to India and died in Pondicherry in 1912, where he was buried.


Some years later a holy man from Tamil Nadu named Sri Kamaljeet Gill claimed

to have been the street urchin foretold in Blavatsky's prediction to Neumark-Jones. A scholarly work may one day be produced on his claim but we are still waiting.
