My husband's family is decended from Abraham White and Elizabeth Theodora Van Driberg (or von Drieberg) the van was dropped. They were married 30 December 1807 in Jaffna Ceylon. Elizabeth's siblings were Charles, captain of Ceylon Rifles - had 7 children. Fred - Lt Ceylon Rifles, William George - Major Ceylon Rifles - married 1 son. Charles and Henry. Maybe your family is descended from one of these. Elisabeth's father was Captain F.W. von Drieberg.We think the mother's name was Marie Tasman.
