I suggest you try either Fergusons Directory or Thackers Directory - I know
these can be found at the Society of Genealogy in the UK (not sure where),
or from the British Museum in London. Once you have found your g-uncle's
name listed, it will possibly give you the name of the tea plantation and
not sure where you would go from there.
Good luck with the search.
