A Tale to be Told
Medhurst travelled extensively to spread the Christian message. From London, he went to a host of places in Asia, including Madras, Malacca, Penang, Batavia, Macao, Canton and Shanghai amongst others.
I have actually attempted to retrace some of Medhurst’s footsteps, by visiting some of the places, meeting people involved with aspects of his legacy and following the history of the period in that region. He is actually my ancestor making this search very close and special to me. These experiences alone would make an interesting story and here are some snippets from that journey.
