English: Major General Claude Martin (4 January 1735, Lyon - 13 September 1800) was an officer in the French, and later the British, army in India. He rose to the position of Major General in the British East India Company. Martin was born in Lyon, France, into a humble background, and was a self-made man who has left a substantial lasting legacy in the form of his writings, buildings and the educational institutions he founded posthumously. There are seven schools named after him, two in Lucknow, two in Calcutta and three in Lyon. The small village of Martin Purwa in India was also named after him.
