FROM THE OLD FORUM

RE: Planters Register Roy Clogstoun 25/04/06 12:57
(roy.clogstoun@dcita.gov.au)

Do you have any record of a Cuthbert George Wilder Clogstoun as a planter. I understand that he came to Ceylon (presumably from Madras, where his father was a soldier) in the late 1870 to be a planter. He married a Ceylonese women called Carolyn Pereira and thay had a son and a daughter. The son, William Clogstoun, was born in Gampola in November 1880. I understand William Clogstoun was born on an estate. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Msg received from Roy Clogstoun as an addendum to his earlier posting:

Since then I have discovered that my great grandfather Cuthbert George Wilder Clogstoun first planted coffee at Castlemilk Estate in Gampola and then at Blackwater Estate in Nawalapitiya. Is there anyone who has any information on these estates.

Dear Roy,
I have just had advice from the editor of The History of Ceylon Tea about your enquiry re-posted, it would seem, from 2006.
Clogstoun is an unusual name and because of that I can say that I am pretty sure I have not encountered it in my travels through the annals of this history. There is an outside chance that he may have been mentioned in one or more of the old photographs which date back in the HOCT albums to the 1840s if my memory serves me correctly. There are not many with captions but who knows? . . . .. you may strike it lucky.
We now have to rely on old fellows like myself who started planting c.1950. Compare that with 1870!!
All the best,
Ian.
