Notes on the Geography of Sri Lanka: Colombo: Photo 22
"Juvent Aspera Probum. In ever loving memory of George Steuart, founder of the firm of George Steuart & Co., Colombo, late of Waverly Lodge, Blackheath, Kent. Born at Dover, 1st May, 1808. Died at Dover, 8th July, 1896." The firm, which managed coffee estates, was begun by brother James Steuart in 1835, but he as a government officer was compelled to divest himself of it. In 1839 James turned it over to his brother Joseph, who however died in 1843. The firm was then turned over to another brother, George, who renamed the firm and ran it until retiring to England in 1863, where he lived another 33 years.
