Dear Serena
I do not know whether your ggf was a relative of Lieut James Conway.His second wife Mary whom he married in Colombo on 6 December 1817, opened a school for boys and girls in Hospital street Fort on 15 July 1872
Mary died on 6 July 1829.(Ref Lewis-Tombstones and Monuments )An English teacher by the name P.J. Conway was with the Roman
Catholic Mission in Jaffna in 1871.Again I do
not know whether there was any connection with your ggf.
Your grandfather Charles Conway as you may know was employed at Lake House and lived for
some years with his mother(the Indian tamil lady)who brought him up,at St Michael's Road
Kollupitiya, and later at Moors Road, Wellawatte. I have not been able to find any
info on Archibald Conway, but will contact you should I have anything of interest.
