Hüseyin Mustafa 'Uşi'.

The 'Uşi'. The Viddini, Horos & Gutsullo are part of this family

Hüseyin Mustafa 'Gutsullo' born 1858 completed a two year national service of the Ottoman army in 1878-79. With the control of Cyprus handed to the British in the same year he joined the British army in 1879-1881. [1] Unfortunately for reasons not known he died at a young age in the 1890s. It seems his wife Emine Seid 'Kilinciri' also died just before or after him leaving an only child, [2] Fatma 'Gutsulli' - better known as Giççu nene by the whole village.

As an orphaned child she was hired to work in Nicosia. When she was in her teens she came back to Luricina around 1904-5? where she married İsmail Ali 'Tahuredi' (Giçço) They opened the first sweet shop in the village and even today are both remembered with affection by all the older people of our village. Giççu nene passed away in February of 1976 at the age of 85-86?

[3] Ottoman census 1879 Doc No; 152-a-2 ref no; 5311, page 303.

[4] The dates of Mustafa & İsmail are from, The 1831 T.C Başbakanlık Osmanlı Arşivleri. Book TŞR.KB.d.00040. Pages 45 ve 46. Person No's; 48 &49. Their fathers Huseyin year of birth was not recorded.

[8] The Gondozi family were part of Ibrahım Tahsildars records but most names have been added with the kind assistance of Ayshe Fadel via facebook messages.

[9] Ottoman census 1879, Doc No, 151-a-3 page 301

[10] Records of İbrahım Tahsildar did not give the name of this individual. page 189.

[11]  Mustafa & İbrahim have not been found on any other record apart from the Milli arşiv  ve araştırma dairesinde 67 numarada kayıt.  1889,1890,1893,1897,1906 kayıtlar. page 160 family number 74. Though none were shown as deceased in the records, they have no families in existence. My conclusion is that all three died as children.
