 Post subject: descendents of Sri Wickramma Rajasinha - Help!!!!
 Post Posted: Sat Nov 12, 2005 12:14 am 
Dear Sir or Madame,

I am writing to you to see if you can help me trace my family history.

Sri Wickrama, the last king of kandy was my great, great, great, great grandfather. I have grown up with the legend that his daughter, Menike or Manika married one of the english officers enlisted to keep the royal family under house arrest while at Vellore. She then travelled back to England and so began the line that has led to me.

I have not been able so far to find out if this is really true, and would really apreciate it if you could tell me the names of all his children, and what became of them. I have also wondered if she was really a concubines daughter?

Is there in excistence a complete history of the descendents of Sri Wickramma Rajasinha 11? if so could you send me details of how to obtain it in english!

I would be so truly gratefull and await your reply...

yours faithfully

Emma :oops:
Gloucester, England

this is really exiting to hear that we still have someone from the royal family. i think you have to trace the royal family details by using the written documents of the prisoners during 1815 ... I"m sure the british have all the records you need.

Dear Emma

Have you tried the British Library archives? Other option is to get in touch with the National Library in Sri Lanka or Colombo Museum.

Good luck.
