Was wondering if anyone knows about the White Vaidya Thiyya community of Kerala, especially in the North Malabar areas of Cannanore/Telicherry/Mahe.
Basically looking for more information on my great-great-grandfather's family. The only information I have is that he was from Cannanore and was married (second time) to the daughter of a English colonist in the mid 1800s and had 2 sons from this marriage.

One of the sons was a Sr Officer with the Indian Medical Services in Delhi and later migrated to England along with his mother sometime in the late 1800s or early 1900s.

Can anyone tell me if there you have any infomation/webpages/details on European women who married Indian men in the 1800s. (The children from these marriage are technically NOT considered Anglo Indians?)
There are many webpages for Anglo Indian genealogy but is there anything for the kind of info I am looking at?

Any help or suggestions on how to go about researching my family tree given these details would be most helpful.

Thanks
Lila

Hello Lila

Choyi's sons are C K Vijayraghavan, C K Lakshmanan and C K Bharatan. He also had 2-3 daughters - C K Nalini, C K Hyma and one more whose name I'm not sure.

Since your'e posting is over 2.5 years old, am not sure if you are still requiring this info

I am also wondering about this theory for sometime. sometime back i was reading an article, dont remember the author but in the kerala history also there is no much info but little.
I have been hearing from my late mother and b in law a lot of theories on migrated families in the early 1900's or late 1800's.Howver there still some older people with whom still i can speak and gather some information.
as you have put in the offsprings never got the anglo indians title however.
if you are interested lets make an effort. More after hearing from you.

I am one of the memember of an anciant Thiyya Family of Travancore. My grand father (Father's father)is belog to the famous Pannikottu Thiyya Tharavad in Kalloopara, Thiruvalla and my grand monther(Mother"s Mother) belog to the famous Thiyya Taravad named as Malethreyil, Vaipooru,Mallappally. My Mother's Father is belong to famous Thiyya Taharavad named as Varikad, Mallappally. Most of the North Keralite Thiyya ignore the thiyya of Travancore. There are more famous Thiyya family in Travncore
They are, Pavothhu kattil & Ambiyil in kezvaipur,Mallappally & Ambalavelil in Kulathoor, Mallappally etc. and also many Thiyyas Tharavad in Amblapuza also. We want more studies to find our thiyya culture. We request our North Keralite thiyyas to kindly
take necessary step to get together of all thiyyas.
