De Fonseka families of Panadura
Home >> Family Trees

While much has been discussed and documented about the De Fonseka families of Kalutara, several other clearly distinguishable De Fonseka family groups  can be identified in a study of the 'De Fonseka' name. 

One such group is the De Fonseka families originating from Panadura. Predominantly Buddhists, there seems to be a large crowd of de Fonseka families distributed in and around Panadura. So far in my research I have not been able to find a connection between the two family groups, the only clue being the 'Ge' name of Kalutarawedage in these families. Hopefully future research may  give the answers to these questions.

The most notable amongst the family group  was Hon. Sir Susantha De Fonseka O.B.E, member of the 1931 State Council.
