Rowland-Joens in Sri Lanka

Im trying to trace my ancestors. I know my great grandad was a merchant see man in India but his wifes family owned a tea plantation in Sri Lanka (tho I dont know her maiden name). I also know that my Grandad was born in Colombo, Sri Lanka (Celyon as it was back then) in the 1920-30s.

Any help tracing them would be appreciated. I think that in some records the Rowland might have been taken for a middle name so if you see any females with Rowland as a middle name let me know!!!
