CRONING Family Tree

with links to British India

The WebThis site

Hello , I am trying to trace my family of Cronings and wonder if you have any information that will link them to Ceylon ( Sri Lanka) in the 1800's. I was told they came from India but have no other information ...My great father was Frank Mansel Croning and he married my grandmother Jane Margaret Morando on 29/5/1900. He I believe was about 42 then, so I guess was born around 1860- 1870?My details are not too clear ...Hope you can help me I would appreciate that .Thanks .Jeanne Furlong (nee Croning )
