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?
