I am still trying to find date of death for:
Arthur Mansell Carre and his wife Ellen. We believe that Ellen spent time in
a mental hospital. She may have died there. He was a coffee/tea planter in
Suluganga, Maskeliya. I think he arrived about 1860. I also think his wifes
parents, Robert and Alison Browne lived there and probably died there. Any
information or advice would be appreciated.

Hello I am new to this list (first posting).
My interest is of Tea Planters from Scotland to Ceylon, 1880 - 1900.
Especially that of what I presume to be a plantation named - 'Gavatenne' in Madulkellie, Ceylon.
Is anyone researching the same? And are there any web sites where I can further my searching?
Patricia in New Zealand.
My great Aunt Hilda went to the Malakan Straits and we never heard from her
again. My mum can't remember
Aunt Hilda's married name, but thinks it is Felsinger. Her maiden name was
Mack. This is my grandmother Constance Nellydith Mack's sister, if this
Aunt Hilda had children. I know there are burgers in Malaysia & wonder if
this is where Aunt Hilda landed? I would dearly love to trace this side of
my family to re-establish contact. I go on occasion to Singapore for
business~it would be great to meet up with the family album ;-) thanks for
any info with which you can help me.
