Hugh,
I notice your kind offer to Geoff Summers to post a request in the 'Ceylankan' newsletter. I wonder if you would be willing to post the following for me.

I am looking for information about the family of George Wait, a coffee planter on Peacock Estate Pussellawa from 1856 to 1871, and any information about George himself.

I am also looking for information about Martha and Alexander Cleland, also a planter, and the births of their three children, David (b. around 1848 d. 11 May 1870), Grace (b. around 1849) and Annie (b. around 1851).By the 1861 census, Martha was a widow living in North Berwick, Scotland with the three children all of whom were born in Ceylon.

Any help would appreciated.
Sam Wait
