Completing his education at St. Mary’s College, Chilaw, he enrolled in the Ceylon Law College and passed out as a lawyer, no doubt influenced by the fact that his maternal grandfather was C. E.

During his tenure as a judicial officer, Mayadunne was renowned for his sense of fairplay and justice and above all, the strict discipline he maintained in his courts.

The wedding was held at St. Mary’s Church, Bambalapitiya in 1962. Rita was an English Trained Teacher and was for a period, the District/Divisional Commissioner of the Girl Guides in Kegalle. They had three children, Agnes Sharmila Lilani who is now a senior officer at NARA, Mayadunne Srimevan Anthony, a lawyer and Deputy Solicitor General at the Attorney General's Department of Sri Lanka and Priyantha Rajiv Sebastian, who worked at Air Lanka.
