Response to a query submitted by Lawrence Edmonds on the Krasse family from Dr. Malcolm jansze in Colombo, Sri Lanka:-
quote Dear Mr. Edmonds Thank you for your email of 17.3 passed on to me by both Victor Melder & Fazli Sameer. Sorry for the delay
I have some of the info that you require. 1 & 2 Re Lt. Krasse and John William Krasse I have no info at all - since they were in Jaffna which is now nreachable. Goodness knows what & where the records are. How did you get that info on their dates? Was (3) Frederica the wife of John William?
4. Robert Henry Krasse married at Kandy in Feb 1843 to Margaret Ferdinands whom I presume is the Margaret Krasse in question 5. This is according to his children's baptisms - but I have not seen a record anywhere yet. They had 5 children of whom I know, but James Jordan is not one of them.
6. James Jordan Krasse married at Kandyy at the age of 23 and had 19 children of whom Ottelie Agnes Matilda was the 5th. I had no info on her marriage etc.
Re Edmonds - I do not have Cecil Lionel, but I do have a Cecil Lawrence b.1890 marrying Miss de Haan and having 2 children. Snce you rourself are Cecil Lawrence is it possible that this is your father with a previous marriage?
I would also be glad to provide more info if you need. However I work on an info for info basis, so I would be grateful if you could provide me with some info on the Edmonds & Krasses at least - your own family for a start. Hoping to hear from you soon Regards Malcolm Jansze firstname.lastname@example.org unquote
