James Blacket (Blackett) 1828 Sri Lanka (Ceylon) I am interested in any records about James Blackett when in the Kandy area. He was born in Colombo in 1808 to John and Jane Blacket He married a Mary nee Brown in about 1828 - 1831 then recorded as living at Hantane, Kandy. Birth of son James Blackett in 1831. Wife Mary appears to have died by 1844. James then married Henrietta Gerhardina nee Hesse on 23rd. January 1845 at Holy Trinity church, Colombo. She died without issue 28th. September 1848 & buried at St. Paul's, Colombo. James then married Sophia Francina nee Elhart at St. Paul's church, Colombo on 12th. February. 1849. They were then recorded as living at Uduwela, Nr. Kandy. There were two children & their daughter Catharine Maria Blackett married Arthur Duncan Loos. I am particularly interested in any record of James Blacketts life at Kandy from 1828 to his death and the date of his death plus where he is buried with his last wife.
