So pleased to have found your list. Have been looking through the archives re: Planters,
bit it seems that everyone is having about as much success as me. None! [Not that I've
got much to go on in the first place].
The information I have is ALEXANDER ORR born Pont de Galle 1848. Father ANDREW ORR -
Planter. Alexander pops up again in London in 1870 when he married.
I would like to know where Andrew originally came from, who he married etc., I have no
idea when his Son Alexander came to England, so don't know where he was educated.
The GRO overseas dept., have done a search to no avail. I'm now waiting for a reply
from the Commisioners Office in Columbo. Have typed Andrew Orr into my computer so many
times - I can almost hear it groaning 'not him again'.
Would appreciate some help,
