Hello My name is Steven Leece and I have been trying to track down my Grandmothers family down she was born in Sri Lanka in 1890. I would appreciate any information you may be able to offer either directly or by passing my request onto others.
Parents: Father: James Gordon White Mother: Annie Elizabeth Drummond Gordon Lovell Children: Daughters: Muriel Christine Gordon White Cara Annie Drummond Gordon White Born, Kandy Sri Lanka,May,21,1890 Sons: Preston Gordon White Neville Gordon White
It would appear from the records that I have been able to view that although the families name was GORDON- WHITE, it may also have been presented as WHITE.
Cara Annie Drummond Gordon White travelled with her sister Muriel who married a Robert Forsyth Smith on July,07,in Ongarue 1916, staying in New Zealand for the rest of her life. Cara travelled to Canada and Married on January 1915 to my Grandfather George Leece in Nelson, British Columbia, Canada.
James Gordon White father and two sons Preston and Neville served in some degree in the British Military Service of that particular period, in Sri Lanka.
Although his profession on my grandmothers marriage document has him listed as a tea planter.
One of the sons was to have married a Sri Lankan women and remained living in Sri lanka, we believe this to have been Neville.
I realise that the information presented may appear somewhat scattered, especially pertaining to isolating these individuals, still any assistance offered will be greatly appreciated.
Thank You Sincerely Steven Leece firstname.lastname@example.org
