The Ceylon Almanac and Annual Report for 1859 published by William Skeen gives the following entry under Deaths : 6 October at Kirinde Medical Asst Samuel Forbes. I was not able to find anything more but in the Ceylon Calendar and Compendium of Useful Information for the Year 1843 I found the following entries, but whether or not they are relatives of Samuel Forbes is not known.
WG Forbes District Judge Badulla -Appointed 1 Feb 1842
JG Forbes Retired District Judge Colombo -retired on 29 Aug 1836
Hope this information helps
