Sydney, J.N and wife Alice.....Alice is buried in the General Cemetery,Colombo, sharing a plot with my aunt Fay Orchard, who died 1944.
Aside from my aunts inscription, the tombstone reads "Alice, beloved wife of J.N.Sydney"
I have no idea who the Sydneys' are, but i have a suspicion that the Alice might be Alice Frances Shaw, b c 1846, daughter of Richard Shaw & Louise Miller, and if she is the same person, she was first married to John Frederick Nimmo.
Does anyone know of the Sydney name in Ceylon? Anecdotal evidence suggests he was an Englishman, who travelled back to the U.K at least once.
