Sorry for the delay in replying; I have not visited the site in a long while. I see that you did get in touch with Joy. I recently receieved an email from Dawn Pettit who was kind enough to send me some helpful information. She suggested that you may possibly be able/willing to help further. I am researching my maternal lineage: My Grandmother Josephine Agnes Seth (born I am guessing in the 1890's) had two elder, spinster sisters - Kate and Margaret. Likely locale : Madras in India. I have been told that their parents met in County Cork Ireland, where G.Grandfather Seth did business. G.Grandmother was a Fennel. They settled down (returned?) in Madras.
Any insights you may have and would be willing to provide would be greatly appreciated - my two living aunts plead complete ignorance!
