  1. Askm, salam perkenalan dari Kuching,Swak. Saya terbaca ttg Sultan Abdullah di hantar ke pulau Seycheeles pada 1876. Ada tak info tentang siapa yang pergi bersama ke pulau itu? Ngah Ibrahim kemudiannya di hantar ke Sarawak. Ada tak info ttg perkara ini. Dimana di sarawak,siapa yang masih bersamanya dan berapa lama di sarawak? kemungkinan salah seorang daripada mereka itu adalah moyang saya yang berasal dari Kampar,Perak.Terima kasih

    • Salam Cucu Kampar

      Terimakasih diatas kunjungan saudara ke blog SembangKuala. Untuk pengetahuan saudara ada terdapat satu laman http://ngahibrahim.com yang berkenaan dengan keluarga Ngah Ibrahim.
