Thank you for replying. The malabar days account was fascinating as were the
I have no idea where the Balcarres estate was/is. Reading the chapter I
assumed it was in the Balcarres valley.
I was particularly interested also in the mention of Devalur and Gudalur
(variable spellings) because they are on a couple of birth and marriage records
I have. I would love to be able to locate them as we are planning a
'pilgrimage' to S.India in Autumn 2008 to visit locations connected with the
India days. The Nilgiris ( I remember taking the train to Ooty as a child)
are on the itinerary.
It would be great if you could plot the route and also find a map of the
plantations. I will keep on trying.
I suppose the British Library might have a copy of Jennings' book. There
might be a map in it. I have no plans to go there in the near future but could
make a special journey if they do have it and I could access it. It might be
worth a try.
