About this event

Jenny Mallin, a Berkshire based award winning author and public speaker, will offers a fascinating insight into five generations of her family who lived during the days of the British Raj in India. Jenny will capture a period of British history through her presentations with an extensive collection of family sepia photographs. 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. She will describes her grandfathers, uncles and other 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.
