Dennis Kincaid (1905–1937), a civil servant in British India, arrived in Bombay in 1928 to work with the courts. He was the elder son of Charles Augustus Kincaid, a distinguished civil servant, and a well-known novelist and historical writer.
Also a novelist, Dennis authored British Social Life in India, 1608-1937, a classic account of the British in colonial India. His Cactus Land was an unusual story, breaking with the conventions of Indian novels of that period.
Dennis died on 10 June 1937 while swimming in a rough sea.
