Thank you to Coreen & Larry Andresen for the following info:

Twentieth Century Impressions of Ceylon, edited by Arnold Wright.
Edward Lionel Wijegoonewardene, born Colombo, 08 Dec 1879
Frederick Llewellyn Goonewardene, born 16 Sept 1880
Don Phillip Alexander Wijewardene
Phillip Perera Seneveratne Abeyesinghe Palhiyawadena Wijeygunawardena,
born Colombo 1851, married Clementina Matilda Abeyekoon in 1882.

Ceylon, Its History, People, Commerce, Industries and Resources. by
Plate and Co.
William Wijegonewardene born 02 Sept 1881 was a Doctor of Medicine
trained in England.
We have both books in our own personal collection.
There are references in other Ceylon publications but you need to
identify which family first.

There are so many variations to the name that you need to know who and
where your parents/grandparents married, what proffession or business he
were in, and when did they migrate, to try and narrow down the family.
