A Lawyer Who Came To Kenya In 1920


Coastweek-- In search of information about a grandfather, father, lawyer, businessman, in Kenya.

The attached photo comes from the cover of the ‘Old Africa’ magazine of October-November 2013.

To the right of the photo is a gentleman by the name of James A.C. Burke who came to Kenya in 1920s, soon after the country became a British Colony.

He hailed from Trinidad and Tobago, of Asian stock, whose ancestors must have been part of the Indentured labour force from India in the 1800s. He was educated in Britain, and came to Kenya to practice law.
