    <span>15.5.19. After all this time I think my time as Acting Superintendent on Forres was March - Sept 1958. The date 1959-1960 given to previously to HOCT in my data table is definitely wrong.</span>

  • Fiona Durling . Commented on C.J. Thomson

    Charles John Thomson was my great grandfather's brother. He died aged 23 in 1891. How please? and where is he buried? Great grandfather was Alexander William Thomson of Thomson and Alston, tea merchants and shipping I believe. Alexander was married to Mary Eliza Ferguson, daughter of William and Robina Ferguson (Land surveyor in Colombo) niece of Alastair McKenzie Ferguson, proprietor of the Colombo Observer newspaper. Various Ferguson's (including Alastair) owned plantations/estates. I would be very grateful for any details you can supply regarding them and their time in Ceylon. Many thanks. Fiona Durling (nee Thomson)

    I acted on Ingoya at the end of 1959 into 1960 having taken over from N.F.Picken who was manager there from 1950. At the time Ingoya was in rubber but it may have been in tea previously, like Dewalakande was.
