Camilla: presumably you mean 1869 to 1880? (vice 1969 to 1980)?

Subject: [SRILANKA] Early Ceylon and shipping
I wondered if anyone could help me with a few details on life in Ceylon
Were times hard when the coffee didn't work out? Did they live in
comfortable homes with servants? Also, any help with shipping lines from
Ceylon to UK, Guernsey. My grandmother and siblings, Carré, were shipped
back home for their education, probably in two's at about age 6. Surely they
had an escort. Families that may have helped in this respect would be Swans,
Carré, Wright and Bird.
I would appreciate any help along these lines.
