This is my first posting to this group, so a little introduction.
I have been researching various families in time associated with the name HYDE, it has now
brought my researches to Ceylon.
I am looking for information on George Herbert MacCarthy HYDE and his wife Evelyn
(nee'Gilliat), from research carried out by my late Grandfather
we have Emelyn Gilliat of Hanwell as his spouse, but no records show a marriage for this
couple in the UK, so I wonder if the marriage was in Ceylon?
I have the dates and places for his birth and his death, but nothing of his marriage.
The connection we have for the HYDE and GILLIAT family is G.H.M. Hyde last will, where it
mentions "Crested" ( I assume GILLIAT Crest) silverware to be given to Peter
Gilliat, son of Lionel Oswald GILLIAT, Tea Merchant/Producer. Nothing is mentioned of
Evelyn HYDE (nee' Gilliat), following on from this there is a marriage for a Evelyn
Grace GILLIAT to a De Seigneux in 1921, Kensington, London and other information which
connects Evelyn and Lionel Oswald GILLIAT as Brother and Sister, children of
Hubert(Herbert) Adkin GILLIAT and Fanny MACKWOOD.
So if anyone can advise me where to look for more information about the above, as
mentioned I have various items of information on G.H.M. HYDE, but would like to find out
more about his life and if George and Evelyn had a family.
There is on youtube an item about GHM Hyde and his work on Ceylon, makes interesting
