British Raj Ancestors

31-03-2023 7:30 pm -10:00 pm
British Raj Ancestors

As a public speaker, Jenny delivers a fascinating insight into five generations of her family who lived during the days of the British Raj in India.  Seen through the eyes of their granddaughter, Jenny captures a period of British history through her Power-point presentations with extensive collection of family sepia photographs, and manages to bring her stories to life: her grandmothers' lives as memsahibs and the "legacy" that Jenny has been given, a 170 year old cookbook penned  by Jenny's great 4 x grandmother in 1844 when she was aged just 15 and a newly wed bride, married to an English schoolmaster.  Jenny also describes her grandfathers, uncles and relatives who served in the British Army as early as 1798, The Royal Indian Navy, the Railways in Madras, a co-founder of an English Medium School in India in the early 18th century and a great uncle who rose up through the ranks of the ICS to become Postmaster General in the telegraph industry.
