PART 1---ROLV REISSIGER CELEBRATED HIS 50TH BIRTHDAY AT SUFFOLK HOUSE IN PENANG

KEE@FSWMAG.COM

SUFFOLK HOUSE WAS BUILT ON VAST PEPPER ESTATE AND OWNED BY CAPTAIN FRANCIS LIGHT (1740-1794) THE FOUNDER OF PRINCE OF WALES ISLAND WHICH BECAME PENANG AND 'PEARL OF THE ORIENT'!

Captain Francis Light lived here with the woman he loved Martina Rozells, half Portuguese and half Siamese and reputed to be adopted daughter of Sultan of Kedah. He bequeathed his entire pepper plantation and estate to her but Light's executors betrayed her and transferred to themselves.

In 1805 the house was sold to William Philips (1769-1850)  and he finalised Suffolk House in its present form. In 1818 Sir Stamford Raffles stayed here as guest and discussed the founding of Singapore. It evolved over the years and was a most gracious mansion before becoming a school and falling into ruin. 

In 2007 it rose phoenix-like to become the finest Anglo-Indian mansion outside India thanks to Penang State Government, HSBC Bank and Penang Heritage Trust.

Ten years later Rolv Reissiger celebrated his 50th birthday here! With new bride Mrs Reissiger and some 70 friends. Some may know Mrs Reissiger as Dato Nancy Yeoh our PR queen!
