    Good to see something by David here. Allow me to make a couple of small corrections for the record: On Alton I was not acting for Geoff Middleton but was Superintendent - Geoff had gone to Tangakelle - and Peter Innes was not on Moray but on Rosita at this time.

    Thank you Frederick for sharing your tea planting memories and in particular for acknowledging my father, Malcom K Furlong. Sadly, as you know, he passed away in 1998 and hence not able to contribute memories of his tea planting days on Moray Estate and Laxapana Estate in the 1960s. However, I do have his Ceylon planting history written by him and it is my intention to upload these details onto this website, hopefully by the end of this year.

    Prior to 1904 Dewalakande was in tea and in that year it was replanted in rubber probably by G.H.Masefield who was later to become the General Manager of the sister companies with the Head Office on Scrubs, Nuwara Eliya.

  • Rupert Navamani . Commented on THE KELLY’S OF KILLARNEY

    I was born in the home of my uncle v.s. William, the Field Officer. the log cabin in which I was born, in 1929 still exists I am told. In fact during the period 1920 to 1950 the three " Staff " of the estate were my relatives and Douglas Kelly had full faith in them. Of course I knew Deen his driver "factotum" as you have termed it. Maybe my last visit to this estate was around 1968
