The book "Tombstones and Monuments in Ceylon" by Penry Lewis, page 229, gives the following details.
Adriana Gertruida Anderson, Died (or buried) on 14 Aug 1829, at the Pettah Cemetery, Jaffna.
Adriana Gertruida Toussaint, wife of J.T.Anderson, the 43rd year of her age.
She was the daughter of Barent Justinus Toussaint and Jacomina Gerardina Giffening, and grand-daughter of Johannes Toussaint and Anna Elizabeth Kriekenbeek.
James Thomas Anderson was a Captain, probably a Sea Captain and an Englishman. It is supposed to be his Monogram in floriated ironwork which is over one of the doors of a house in Main Street, now occupied by Machado and Co. This was his first wife. He had 5 daughters and 2 sons by her. One daughter married the Rev, M. Carver, three others Toussaints. One son, James Thomas, married Amelia, daughter of Samuel Hollowell and grand-daughter of James Hollowell of Wexford.
James Thomas Anderson Snr, married again in Galle, Johanna Henrietta Susanna de Vos, widow of Reynier von Alken. His only child by this marriage, Sara Helena, married Raoul Piachaud of Negombo, grandson of Major Francis Piachaud of the De Meuron Regiment, born at Nion, Canton Bern.
I hope this info is of some help to you.
