Hi, I don't know your families. My interest is Carre about 1860's. Mainly

I would love to hear from anyone with an interest in the above names or
families, possibly what they did or who they were. Family lore says that the
Manzies were owners of a coffee plantation and the Atwells were a military
I am happy to share what I have.
Can anyone give me any information on Charles John Marzetti who, according to
a family chronicle which has been copied to me, "remained most of his life on
a small tea estate of his own called Walaboda". He was born in Barnet,
England, in 1871. I am not sure exactly when he went to Sri Lanka, but it was after
a failed attempt to become a farmer in Canada. He was a witness at the wedding
of his sister Clementine in Madras, India, in 1903.
I have no idea whether he married or where and when he died.
