Famous Family.
In the notes concerning the clearing of the Galle Burial Ground reference was made to Mrs Barbara Bridge enter Layard, who was buried there and was notable for having had 26 children (no twins).
The late Mrs Barbara Layard, of Grimmsthorpe, Nuwara Eliya, was her 26th child, while the eldest was the late Sir Charles Peter Layard, for many years government agent of the Western province. His son, also said Charles Peter Layard was Chief Justice of Ceylon.
The fourth child of this large family was the great grandfather of Mr FH Layard of Nuwara Eliya, and Sir Herbert Layard Dowbiggin was also a great-grandson of one of the 26th.
The late Sir Henry Austen Layard, the discoverer of Nineveh, was the nephew of Charles Edward Layard, who perhaps is the most important of all, having been the father of the large family.
