Those of you with an interest in events in and around Tellicherry and Calicut [Thalassery
& Kozhikode] might like to look at the new posts on my blog which contain new articles
about travellers arriving in Tellicherry in the 1820's and 30's, and on the early
life of Murdoch Brown.
I have also been approached in recent days by a group of historians from Calicut who are
forming a new local history group. They have set up a new website at
The are a very approachable set of people, as I met some of them last year. If you have
stories or information in Calicut or the surrounding district, I would urge you to support
this group by sending them posts.
