I have been researching my family history for some 7 years and until
recently have concentrated on the English counties of Lancashire and
I was extremely surprised therefore to discover that I have ancestors who
moved from Yorkshire, via Liverpool and Jersey to Sri Lanka (then named
Ceylon) in the early 1800’s and raised families there until quite recently.
The sons of the original HAYLEY were responsible for the founding of Hayley
and Kenny, a trading company which I believe still exists although it has
lost it’s association with the family now.
My ancestors lived in Galle and I am seeking information on how I can obtain
details of their Births, Marriages and Deaths.
PS:- Some back ground info on the Hayley’s in “Ceylon”:-
