Sri Lanka Burgher/Sinhala Family Genealogy

De Saram - Family #3126

The De Saram Family

A De Saram family probably of Dutch ancestry has Sinhalised itself since the late 18th century. It was also the easiest route to Sinhalisation as the peasant community was widely dispersed, still unstructured and without inter-community networks or leaders.

The first notable ancestor of the De Saram family was an interpreter who accompanied the Dutch Embassy to Kandy 1731 – 1732. Despite his advanced age of 71 years, this early De Saram had to make the entire journey by foot. From there, the De Saram family progressively gained power and position by loyalty, switching religions from Dutch Protestantism to British Anglicanism and benefiting from the preference of British rulers to appoint individuals loyal to their rule to high positions. This fact can be seen across the board amongst many notables belonging to all the communities in Sri Lanka.

The De Saram family was given increasing patronage and chiefly appointments and it grew in power and influence during the British period.

The De Saram family eventually had a strong and exclusive circle of relatives who were Mudaliyars by the late 19th century. Later, through marriage alliances the family extended to the Obeysekere, Dias-Bandaranaike, Ilangakoon, de Alwis, de Livera, Pieris, Siriwardena and Senanayake families. 

Also see Mudaliyardom and Wolfendhal by J R Weinman for references to Rev J H de Saram, the Anglican Clergyman

De Saram family of mixed origin Sinhalese itself by posing as the representatives of the masses and subsequently convinces the British rulers that they are from the Govigama caste. The de Sarams appear to have derived their govigama identity from the Kandyan monks who staged a govigama only coup in the Kandyan Sangha in 1764. The de Saram’s helped these Kandyan Govigama only Siyam Nikaya to establish itself in the British maritime region.

Mudaliyar Don David de Saram (b approx 1750) organizes an unprecedented Buddhist ceremony lasting a week on a flotilla on the Nilwala river in Matara and gives the govigama nikaya his full official patronage. During this period the De Saram family gains power and position first by loyality to thr Dutch and then the British switching religions from Dutch Protestantism to British Anglicanism and collaborating with the invaders.
