I am new to this forum, and would like to find out how I go about obtaining the following marriage certificates for British Subjects married in Colombo.
Samuel RAWSON (b 1819 Kent, ENG) married Frances (Fanny) maiden name not known, 21 Aug 1847 at the Garrison Chapel, Colombo.
Also his grandson, Geoffrey RAWSON (b abt 1886 London, ENG) married Helen Mary ANDERSON abt 1917, also in the Garrison Chapel, Colombo
Samuel RAWSON was a merchant who obviously travelled a lot between England, India, Ceylon, China, etc.His son Charles (Geoffrey's father) was born abt 1850 in China.He is listed on Geoffrey's death certificate as being a "tea planter", but it is not known whether this was in Ceylon or elsewhere.
Geoffrey RAWSON was a Royal Indian Marine and later retired as a Lt-Cmdr of the Royal Navy.
Helen Mary ANDERSON was born abt 1890 in Jamaica.Her parents were Stuart and Mary ANDERSON.I do not know if they too lived/worked in Ceylon.
I am very interested to make contact with anyone else researching any of these individuals or families.
