Good morning Listers,
I am hoping that SKS can confirm for me that Edward TOLFREY who served in Ceylon (Sri
Lanka) for over 20 years, was the son of Samuel TOLFREY who served in Ceylon from 1801,
taking up the position of a member of the Board of Revenue, who subsequently became the
Civil Auditor- General from 1806 to 1809. Below taken from details regarding Edward
TOLFREY'S life and death:-
"...Edward TOLFREY, of His Majesty's Ceylon Civil Establishment, and late
Judicial Commissioner in the Kandian Provinces, who after a period of nearly 20 years'
service in various parts of this Island died in Kandy on the 9th August, 1821. Aged 37
years." Tolfrey is buried in Kandy's Garrison Cemetery, but no stone there
I just need to confirm that his parents were in fact Samuel and Mary Tolfrey (nee
BARBAUD). Thank you in anticipation.
