Sri Lanka Moor Family Genealogy

MARIKAR Family of Kandy - Family #209

The Marikar family of Kandy which originated from Moorish beginnings, can trace its Sri Lankan origins back to the reign of the Kandyan Sinhala king, Rajasinghe II of Senkadagala(1635-1687). It has been documented that the daughter of king Rajasinghe II's brother Kumarasinghe, married a Marikar. Thus, the family was given the royal "ge" name "Galagaha Vidanalage Gedara" and king Rajasinghe's niece was referred to as "Galagaha Vidanalage Gedara Seeelawathi Kumarihami" . The 20th century patriarch of the Marikar family, M.A.S. Marikar, established the law firm of "Marikar & Marikar" located in Kandy . The family tree in this website begins with his father, S.M.L. Marikar, who was a representative of the governor of Ceylon , Sir Henry Arthur Blake (1840-1918).
