TEA, TYTLERS AND TRIBES - AN AUSTRALIAN WOMAN'S MEMORIES OF TEA PLANTING IN CEYLON

December 11th, 2020

0ur family has its roots in the era of British colonialism.

There are descendants of Robert Boyd Tytler, John Campbell Tribe and their like, scattered around the world today who share our Sri Lankan background. They might wish to know where their ancestors came from, and what life had been like in the years before their own parents and grandparents decided to emigrate to other lands and other ways of life.
