I found a reference to a CHRISTINE BOTEJU who is supposed to hail from Royal ancestry as follows:-

Willem van Dort who was a Legal Counsellor at the Courts at Kandy married the daughter of a deposed King of Kandy. Her common name was Christine Boteju. She was a very difficult person as she could not rid herself of her links to royal treatment. They had 16 children. Two of their sons, namely, Agustus Van Dort and Aelian Van Dort emigrated to British Malaya. They were also joined by three of their sisters namely, Nellie Van Dort, Augusta Van Dort and Eva Van Dort all of whom remainded unmarried till the end.

It is highly probable that they travelled to British Malaya together with Llewelyn Van Dort as they were first cousins by bloodline and they were of the same generation. As said earlier herein, their fathers were brothers.
