I found much ship arrival, etc. information in the on-line issues of "Allen's
Indian Mail" . There are many issues on-line. They also include births and marriages!
Interesting articles too...my family (Douglas, Elliott) was in Ceylon about 1839 to 1847.
Hope this helps! Beverly

I found the arrivals and Departures for a whole year, in a couple of "Ceylon
Almanacs" which I borrowed on interlibrary loan..from the National Library
The years I borrowed ( around 1860/1862 I think) were the only issues they
had in stock.
