I am trying to find any relations of my father Royce Douglas hawks worth Chava ,I don't know if this is the correct surname. Roy married Jean Deakin and had 1 child Margaret Jean . His father was Richard t Chava and mother Ann Mary Hawksworth. . I believe he was the younger son. He moved to Australia and lived in Tocumwal N S W. The only information I have is that my father was born  on 22/2/1909 in Kandy Ceylon to Richard T Chava? and  Ann Mary Hawksworth. He was the younger son, so I believe he had other brothers. He left Ceylon at about the age of 19 to go to Uk .We have found a record of him being in the RAF in 1925, maybe. He told me that he went to a private school in Kandy.
