Early British Ceylon military records

Posted: 21 Mar 2010 7:26AM GMT
Classification: Query
We have transcribed the records of the Ceylon Rifle Regiment and am willing to do lookups of Officers and their families. Please be as specific as possible as there are a lot soldiers with the same name.
The records show date and place of birth in most cases and marriage date and bride, and legitimate children baptisms too.
WE have also made a photograhic copy of the 4th July 1828 pay book for Kandy. This large book names all officers and soldiers both British and Native, and clerks in the Army offices too.
The overseas regiments are the 73rd and the 19th Regiment of Foot.The Ceylon Regiments are 1st,2nd,3rd and 4th, Ordinance and Engineers too. There is little other detail except date into Regiment and pay rate.
We have other early miltary lists for Trinco, Jaffna and Mannar too.1802+ which we will check for names at the same time.
Cheers
