Hallo - if you don't mind, could you run a spelling check on your article 'De Worms Family..."? the reason I ask you to respectfully do so is that the surname "Rothchilds" is Irish Protestant (which you have keyed into your story) but the surname "Rothschild" is German Hebrew/Jewish. The two religions are different. Could you please check your terminology and if you do mean to use the Jewish surname of "Rothschild" in the plural form, (as in the possessive tense), please indicate by replacing the incorrect surname with "Rothschilds'" in your blog. I ask this because I'm a Rothchilds and would like the correct terms used whereever/when ever possible. Thank you very much.

My great-great Grandmother was Laura Worms, she remained in Sri Lanka while the rest of the Worms returned to London in the 1860's. I live in Sydney Australia; I would love to visit Rothschild estate: if anyone has a contact I would greatly appreciate the information.

I too would like to hear about Laura. Jenniferannhall@hotmail.com. I think Phillip and I are hunting for more information about Samuel Lewis Worms. He was in Ceylon but can find very little information.
