Subject: [India-L] Introduction
I have been lurking for a while and now feel ready to post my interests.
I am looking for any information regarding my great grandfather Frederick
Sanders LAKEMAN who was born in Ceylon around 1856. He was a wine merchant
in Scotland but I think he was a tea planter in Ceylon. He married Amy
Louise BARKER in Colombo, Ceylon on 14th August 1884.
Their first daughter Winifred was born in Ceylon around 1885 and then they
had a son, Arthur Frederick who was born in England around 1887. Their
second son, Harold Leslie was born in Ceylon around 1889 and then another
son Eric was born in Bridge of Weir, Scotland in 1891.
It appears that they moved between the UK and Ceylon during the 1880s. The
family finally settled in Lenzie, Dunbartonshire, Scotland where Frederick
died in 1928.
I am sorry if this may sound garbled but any information will be
