Apparently George Francis did in fact change his sur name to "Hope" when he got married to Miss Attygalle(no knowledge of first name). Yes, his son Edward was a boarder at Kingswood College Kandy. George was a planter on an estate in Talawakelle, the name of the estate is not known. He apparently lived on the estate with his wife until the time of his death and is buried somewhere in Talawakelle or Hatton. Edward Hope was my mother's father. May I ask what your interest in the family is.
