THYKOOTATHIL means ‘in the midst of a collection of coconut trees’ … which signals our heritage.


The Saint Thomas Christians of Kerala (south-west India) and also known as Syrian Malabar Nasranis, trace our origins to the evangelistic activity of Thomas the Apostle in the 1st century, which saw mainly Brahmin Hindus converting to Christianity.  Saint Thomas Christian names are biblical in origin and passed on from one generation to the next. Male names are usually patronymic and female names are usually matronymic.  This means a person's name will include the names of their parents and grandparents, or that of a close blood relative.  A family or house name may also be included and these tend to come first when written.  Pet names are also common in informal situations, indicating a familiarity with the person.


In the early part of the 19th century, Pottha Chandy and his sister, sold the family property in Anjilithanam following the death of their parents due to small pox, and moved to Eraviperur. They bought the Thykootathil family property in Eraviperur and built their roots.  He was a member of St Mary's Church, Kallooppara.  Pottha's sister was married into Uduppamparambil family in Eraviperur.  As was customary at that time, the Thykootans obtained from the Travancore king's local representative a land grant of approximately 60 acres between Eraviperur and Kumbanadu along the Thiruvalla-Kozhenchery route.  Pottha’s four sons are the progenitors of the four branches of Thykootathil family - namely, Padinjarekkara, Kizhakekkara, Velour-Thazhatheparambil and Klampoyka respectively.  Many of his descendants still live on this land.


The pages of the following foundational documents in Malayalam can be viewed as images alongside these associated individuals: the Will of POTTHA CHANDY (ind00003) registered on 19 Feb 1904 to his 4 sons who are the progenitors of our family branches & the Will of MARIAMMA CHANDY (ind00008) who is the wife of the eldest sibling CHANDY POTTHA (ind00005) registered on 17 Aug 1919 and 'mother' of Padinjarekkara branch.


The family information contained within this website was initially handwritten in a physical Notebook in Malayalam by TP Philipose Thykootathil (Velour), around the late ‘90s we believe.  Thykootathil is one of fourteen families which had its origin from the ‘Chirayil’ super family.  It’s likely that his work was part of the larger project to document the Chirayil family history since their publication in 2002 contains a portion of the Thykootathil information contained here.  A family called Kottappuram, centered around Kangazha, started by Chandy Pottha’s younger brother, Cheriya Pottha, is probably the closest inter-family connection to Thykootathil.


TP Philipose Thykootathil (Velour) made a second handwritten improvement on his original manuscript and this can be viewed against his name here.  The contents of this re-written document were interpreted into English and first made into softcopy in 2002 by Jose Alexander (Padinjarekkara) (ind00175).  He also provided valuable insight which helped shape this introduction.  Both Subin Jacob & Ronnie Frederick have digitalised this information culminating in this genealogical website and its associated support functionality.


The effort to keep information current & updated continues today by various members of the wider Thykootathil Family across India and other parts of the world.  The extended families of our sisters & daughters can also be updated going forwards as the tree aims to track all blood relatives.  Intra = within Thykootathil family, and Inter = between Thykootathil and other families.  The intent of this work is to better understand and increase the bond between distant family members.
