Valerie, Mrs Colepepper returned to England on Steamer "Indus" July 1853
alone. Entry is in Allens Indian Mail 1853, do a Google book search for
colepepper ceylon, and there is more on John too.
There is mention of Mr Colepepper and his career in the Ceylon papers
in the National Archives at Kew too. The papers are in pristine
condition and a joy to research. The same papers in the Colombo Archives
are on film and extremely difficult to read.
Cheers, Coreen and Larry.
