Sri Lankan Sinhalese/Burgher Family Genealogy

Nilaperumal aka Kalukapuge - Family #1001

Bandaranaike family tree 1001

 

According to Mahawansa (Chapter LXXX1X) Rajawaliya and other historic works, Siri Parakramabahu, or Parakramabahu V1 ascended the throne of Lanka in the year 1958 of the Buddhist era or according to some copies of the Mahawansa in the Buddhist era 1953.ie between the years 1410 and 1415 AD.

 

Jayawardenapura, the modern Kotte, was then the Capital of Lanka, which is 6 miles from Colombo.

 

An inscription in the Maha Saman Dewala of Sabaragamuwa says that a Brahamin in the name of Nilaperumal, a grandson Arya-Kamadewa, restored Saman Dewala, which was in ruins on the orders of the great monarch Parakramabahu. The inscription further goes on to say that the dewala was opened for the public in the reign of Kalikalasahitiya Sarvagna Pandita Parakramabahu,buddhist era 1796 or Christian era 1253. Jambudronipura or Dambadeniya was then Lanka's capital. It was in the 39th year of the reign of Parakramabahu,who reigned in Kotte,that the Sabaragamuwa Dewala was restored and the inscriptions were made. This was in the buddhist era 1997 or christian era 1454 or 201 years after the reign of Kalikalasahitiya Saravagna Pandita Parakramabahu. It appears that the Brahamin Arya Kamadewa was a high priest of the dewala, under the Sinhalese Monarchs, and the inscription above referred to say that his Grandson Nilaperumal was appointed to the same rank with the name of Bandaranayaka, in the buddhist era 1992 and 1997 or christian era 1449 and 1454 by Sri Parakramabahu, and further commanded that the office  of Basnayaka of the Maha Saman Dewala of Sabaragamuwa be conferred on the descendents of Nilaperumal. The above account is gleaned from the inscription of the Maha Saman Dewala of Sabaragamuwa and from the Maha Wansa and other Historical works by H Sri Sumangala, High Priest of Siripada, Colombo   November 1886.

 

Rama Chandra Brahamin (b approx 1430) came to Ceylon from India, about the year A.D 1454 and landed in Mattota (may be present day Matara). He married according to the existing customs from a noble kandyan family. He was appointed by the King, Nayaka Pandaram (Chief Record Keeper) of the Maha Saman Dewala in Senkadagala Nuwara, according to an old Sinhalese Manuscript and had a daughter.

 

(3 writers have said that Nayaka Pandaram in 1454 was chief record keeper.

 

With usage Pandara Nayake, the "P" was substituted with "B",thus Bandaranaike evolved. Pandarams of India are Brahmins, and keepers of Court and family records.)
