The 1818 rebellion as well as other uprisings were brutally suppressed by the new British rulers using genocidal measures.The Kandyans were dispossessed of their land which was rapidly converted to coffee plantations, and subsequently to tea.The name "Sinhalé" was used when Kandasamy was crowned "Sri Wikrama Rajasinghe".The 1815 treaty between the English and the `Adigars' of the Kandyian kingdom use the name Sinhalé therein.Subsequent names, e.g., 'Ceilao', "Ceilan", `Ceylam', Ceylan', Zeilon, and Ceylon are adapted from "Serendib".

The vicedroys were subject to the King of the whole Island who also was gradually recognized as the protector of Buddhism, and guardian of the tooth relic of the Buddha.
In modern parlance, the English were brought in by the Kandyans to establish "human Rights"! King Panduwas Dev (Pandukabhaya, 4 century BCE) had divided the country into three provinces, viz., Phiti rata or Raja rata, north of the Mahaweli Ganga and Daduru Oya, Rohana or Ruhuna being south of the Mahaweli and extending up to Kalu ganga, while Maya rata extended from the Kalu Ganga to Deduru oya.
These kingdoms were governed by Yuvarajas (Viceroys) to whome power was delegated by the King.
The British signed a treaty with the Kandyan Adigars (minsters) handing over Sinhalé to the British in return for their guaranteeing various rights including the primacy of Buddhism.
It soon became evident that the "Kandyan convention" was a sham which was not being respected by the British.
