Infor on LYFORD family received from Dr. malcolm Jansze in Colombo, Sri Lanka, that may be useful to all those interested:-

Dear Fazli,
At last I have something constructive to offer you.
John Lyford m St.Paul's Pettah 19.3.1842 Catherine Davidson b.13.3.1826 dau Andrew Davidson & Martha .....
1. John George b.4.2.1843
2. William Alexander b.4.8.1944 bap at Holy Trinity Church Nuwara Eliya
3. Harriet Jane b.15.7.1848 bap St.Paul's Pettah
4. Eliza Mary b.17.3.1853 bap by Galle colonial chaplain m Stephen Charles Cassurier Vander Straaten b.4.3.1852

I also have Elizabeth Lyford who married Tanjore, India 15.6.1899 Lawrence Isidore Michael de la Harpe

That should help a little at least. I have only been interested because of the Vanderstraaten, de la Harpe & Davidson connections.
