Re: Richard Thomas De Silva - thank you Christine Hendry for your reply. Since posting my first message, I have since received some information. R T De Silva was born 1844 in Ceylon. He wrote down an incorrect age on his marriage certificate. He died August 9th 1926. He is my great grandfather.
Do you know how he came and to New Zealand and when??
I am researching for the De Silva Family Tree, so if you know any more details, I would appreciate it if you wouldplease email them to me on :- firstname.lastname@example.org
