I have consulted the family tree as it is so far and it appears that you came from the line that is of the marriage of James Blackett and Mary Brown via their daughter Helen or Helena Blackett who married John Henry Hesse and had a daughter Madeline Helen Hesse who married Simon Stewart. I am also related to James Blackett senior James Blackett Senior who was the son of John Blackett who arrived in the island with the Royal Artillery) and Mary Brown via their son James Junior. Do you have any information when John Blacktt as to when he died and where with his wife Jane and also James Blackett senior and his wife Mary Brown. What James Blackett senior was doing as an occupation and where they are burried. My Grandmother was Alice George Blackett daughter of James Blackett Junior and Catharine Scott. I am interested in trying to research the family as much as possible from their earliest arrival in what was thenCeylon. I was born in Colombo and my father was born in Dolosbage district above Gampola where the Blacketts had estates. Funnily enough a Caryl Adelaide Blackett now Hicks has contacted me about her family line which was via James Blackett senior's third marriage to an Elhart.
