My gggrandfather Edward Herbert Mathias was born in Sri Lanka and appears on the 1891 UK census as born in Sri Lanka 1858. I know his father was John Alexander Matthias a clergyman. Edward also had a brother James C S. Matthias also a clergyman and born in Sri Lanka.

As mentioned Edward appears on 1891 census but not on 1901 census (his family however does). John Alexander Matthias does not appear on any UK census.

How do I find information re: Sri Lanka on this family.

Regards Deb
