COOK Family Tree

with links to British India

I am janakie from sri lanka,50 years old and trying desperately to find my grandmother's relations who are anglo indians, My grandmother was a Cook and her maiden name was Evelyn. Evelyn married my grandfather, Gerald de Silva when he was in madras on duty and both of them came down to Sri lanka. But after the birth of my mother Barbara, she retuned back to India and never visited the island again. May be there are relations of hers in Madras still and i would appreciate if somebody could trace any one of them. My mother is in her mid seventies now and cant remember much details as she was only 2 years when all this happened. According to her my grandmother was a matron in a hospital in madras and she had met my GF whilst he was warded for treatment. i know i cant help you much but at least i am trying if by luck i could trace my maternal relations. 
My mother Babara was born in the town of Kotagala in the Nuwara Eliya District on the 13th November 1927. She also says that her mother Evelyn Cooke had a sister called Rose Foks. My grand ma had worked in the Madras civil hospital till she got married in 1926 as the matron in charge.
