Bandaranaike Family

Nilaperumal aka Kalukapuge - Family #1001

1  Nilaperumal aka Kalukapuge, b: circa 1590, High Priest (Kapurala) of Nawagomuwe

Supposed to have originally held the name Kalukapuge.Later adopted the name Bandara Nayake. Title of an office held by devale chiefs. After 1815,Don Solomon Dias Bandaranaike adopted the name Bandaranaike ,as the British found it difficult to pronounce .

    Mohotti Appuhami b:1625,  (Don Francisco Dias Mohottige Appuhamy)

 

(It may be assumed that during the Dutch period. (1658-1796), they would have chosen to take Western Christian names and also changed their religion from Buddhism to Christianity).

 

Mohotti Appuhamy by Sannas Ola of 11th Feb 1664, received 6 Amunas of field in Nawagamuwa from the Dissawe P Dupont. (He had land in Parakandeniya and Giekinamulla of Siyane Korale.)

 

Many adopted Portuguese names, were often those of their sponsors at Baptism.

The word Don or Dona, first conferred by Portuguese on nobleman and women and high rank Sinhalese. And  was later given to any person, appointed to office under the government.

 

By the 1630's about half of the people of the coastal regions of the South West and most of the inhabitants of Jaffna professed Christianity. Many baptised Roman Catholics may have continued to follow Buddhist rituals in their homes, while adopting a different identity in public.

 

During about three quarters of a century of Dutch rule a large number of baptisms took place. In 1718 ,the total in Colombo, Galle and Matara areas were 93,165. The vast majority converted to ensure their hold over property, the legitimacy of their children, and rights of inheritance, under the Company's administration. People of Ceylon , straddled two identities with some ease.

 

Both Portuguese and Dutch Governments, made profession of Christianity a pre-requisite for government employment, and vigorously  sought conversion. However when the British made it known ,that they did not require conversion, to their form of Christianity, many Lankan  protestants changed their professed religion to Buddhism and Hinduism.

The Tombu index  was started by the Portuguese, but registration work began in the 1740's.
