In Reply to: Caulfeild, Treasurer of Ceylon by Ted Pearce of 2355

Dear Ted,
There is a lengthy writeup about your G-G-F in a book titled "List of Inscriptions on Tombstones and Monuments in Ceylon" by John Penry Lewis.
He died on May 4, 1861, and a tablet in the St.Peter's Church, Fort, Colombo,
"This tablet was erected by the Civil Service to the memory of James Caulfield, late Treasurer of this Colony. He was born in Ireland, 19 July 1806. He died at Kandy 4 May 1861.
Few men have lived more loved and respected, few have died more sincerely regretted."
The Arms on the tablet: -Barry of nine and -on a canton -a lion passant guardant.
Crest: A rose with three leaves.
The rest of the writeup (two pages) is too long to copy here. If you can't find the book, please e-mail me direct.
Hope the above is useful to you. Kind regards, Charles.
