John Jacobus APPOO was born about 1822 in Trincomalee, Ceylon, son of John Emanuel Appoo,
Caste unknown; religion likely to be Catholic. Much is known of life after 1851 when he
left Galle, Ceylon in 1850. Family legend says,
his father, John Emanuel Appoo owned a large cotton mill . As yet unproven. Has anyone
made progress with early research of natives?
Any help welcome.
