Re: any NORTHWAY family member

In Reply to: any NORTHWAY family member by AMH1 Edwin L. Carson USN (Ret) of 2355

While researching the genealogy of the de Hoedt family I happened to come across your article and hope the following information will come in useful. This information was given to me by my Dad - now deceased, hoping it will come in useful with my application for British citizenship at the time.
Samuel Northway was married to Auralia (maiden name unknown) and they had three sons and a daughter namely Charles E., Robert, Lawrence and Alice Mary. Charles was a JP.,UM., and in the Fergusonís Ceylon Directory of 1956 he was Superintendent of Hulandawa Estate, Akuressa. Robert was on Orion Estate, Pusselawa, Gampola and the position he held is unknown. Alice Mary was married to Rudolphus Garridus de Hoedt and they are my grand parents. F.A Northway is the son of Charles and in the 1958 edition of the Fergusonís Ceylon Directory he was manager of Deviturai Rubber and Tea estate.
This is as much information that I can give you at present but a cousin of mine that I lost contact with and trying to get in touch with again did have a family tree of the Northway family. It was drawn up by my grandma Alice and I remember there being a French connection in it as well. Let me know if this information will be useful if I do get in touch with my cousin.
