History of Kandathil Kudumbam

Attempts are being made all over the world for tracing family roots. History recreates history. So one must dwell into past history to create a family history.
It is believed that St. Thomas, the disciple of Jesus Christ who came to India in 52 AD, landed in the port town of Kodungalloor and established a Christian community there. Thus our family had its beginnings in Kodungalloor. The then Christians were much hard working and prosperous and hence they were victims of jealousy among the locals and had to face many problems. As a result, some of them left Kodungalloor in the early part of the 9th Century. The Paruthimoottil family, which is the root of ‘Our’ family and the Killilethu family, were the two rich Christians who left Kodungalloor.
