Following the arrest of Dato’ Maharaja Lela and his conspirators, Sultan Abdullah, together with members of his family, was sent into exile by the British to the Seychelles on 30 March 1877, together with the Orang Kaya Kaya Menteri Larut Ngah Ibrahim Long Jaafar, Orang Kaya Kaya Laksamana Mohd Amin Alang Duakap and Orang Kaya Kaya Shahbandar Uda Maamor.

Age 39

When the turmoil in Perak had dwindled down, Sultan Abdullah was allowed to return to Victoria, Mahé in 1882. It was during this time, Tuanku was able to lead a quiet yet better lifestyle, being able to mix with people of high society in the island, and having access to Government House. Tuanku’s children (some of whom were born in the Seychelles) attended the local schools – the boys to the Government school, and later to England, whilst the girls attended St. Paul’s Mission School for Girls. It was during Tuanku’s years in Victoria, that he had support from many of the colonial merchants and persons of well-repute in the appeal for his return to the Federated Malay States.

Age 51

Tuanku was permitted to return to the Federated Malay States, for which he finally left for in 1894. It was reported that by this time Tuanku had some affectionate attachment with the colony in Seychelles – “… and, on his departure, expressed in a speech the regret which he felt on leaving a colony where he had passed so many happy years“. Tuanku had then lived in the Seychelles for 17 years.

Sultan Abdullah lived for a time in Singapore and then removed to Penang.
