TOOLSIE, alternative spellings: TOOLSI, TULSIE, TULSI. There are probably more. I think this is not really an Indian surname, but actually a male given name.

When asked, an indentured worker would provide the only name he knew and then it became his surname. My grandfather was born in Jamaica in 1873, but have never been able to get any records from Jamaica even after sending money. Any useful information is welcome.

I'm easy to find: Cyril Jardine.
