My father was born in India to a long line of British
colonials. Our Godfrey line goes back directly to John
Godfrey who, judging by his will, was a quite succesful mariner based in Calcutta in the 1790's.
Following Godfrey generations included an indigo planter, a magistrate, and
a tea planter.
My grandfather was Terence Godfrey, born around 1906, most likely in
Calcutta. He split up with my grandmother around 1939 and might have
started another family elsewhere. I I would very much like to hear from
any other relatives of Terence Godfrey or his brother Norman Godfrey.
