Continuing[edit]

I have blanked the content you re-added to the article because it still contained close paraphrasing of the source. For some examples just using the sources I saw earlier, the article says:

His grandfather, John Henricus de Saram, also was a judge. Wendt's mother was an enthusiastic social worker, and organized frequent concerts with aid of charities. Lionel was regularly taken by his father to A.W. Andree's Hopetoun Studio, where he was 'particularly intrigued by a large camera on castors with a musical box attached to it for the amusement of children’.

While the source says:

his grandfather, John Henricus de Saram, also a judge, one of its first presidents. The Society maintained a reading room with books and periodicals and held annual exhibitions with the Ceylon Society of Arts. Lionel was regularly taken by his father to A.W. Andree's Hopetoun Studio, where he was 'particularly intrigued by a large camera on castors with a musical box attached to it for the amusement of children'.

And shortly after that, the article reads:

In 1919 he went to England to the Inner Temple regarding study law. While he was in London Wendt trained in the master classes pianist Mark Hambourg, and Gerald Moore at the Royal Academy of Music. He been solely determined upon a career as a concert pianist, he might have remained in Europe after the completion of his legal studies. in 1924 he got a decision to return to Sri Lanka and an eagerness to art and enrolled as an Advocate of the Supreme Court of Ceylon.[4]

And the source:

In 1919 he went to England to study law at the Inner Temple. His younger brother Harry followed a few years later to read the same subject at Cambridge. London gave Wendt the opportunity of advanced training at the Royal Academy of Music under Oscar Beringer, in the master classes of the famous pianist Mark Hambourg, and with Hambourg's pupil, Gerald Moore. Had he been solely determined upon a career as a concert pianist, he might have remained in Europe after the completion of his legal studies. The decision to return in 1924 not only marked the commencement of his adult professional life but also suggests a commitment to his country and an eagerness to intervene in its society, art and culture. Scarcely practising as a lawyer, however, though enrolled as an Advocate of the Supreme Court of Ceylon

Many other instances also follow too closely. While facts are not copyrightable, creative elements of presentation - including both structure and language - are. The less creative the expression, the looser copyright applies, but even so close paraphrasing becomes a great concern when there are long passages that include fragments of the original and the structure of the original is retained. The essay Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing contains some suggestions for rewriting that may help avoid these issues. The article Wikipedia:Wikipedia Signpost/2009-04-13/Dispatches, while about plagiarism rather than copyright concerns, also contains some suggestions for reusing material from sources that may be helpful, beginning under "Avoiding plagiarism".
