I am trying to trace my grandfather Antonio Ella - born Rome 1843 father
Antonio Ella, mother Maria de Louise. Antonio (jnr) arrived Australia
1862 I think, per SS Bombay, embarking at Galle (then Ceylon). However
the ship's passenger manifest shows him as a British citizen. Could he
have taken out British citizenship in Ceylon, and if so, how could I
follow up the matter.
It would be very much appreciated if some kind person could point me in
the right direction - I have been trying for years to trace him and this
seems a last desperate effort.
Here's hoping - Lawrie Griffiths, Melbourne, Australia.
