Looking at your web site, I note youíve already put the listings on! :-) However, entries approved! Sorry, I do not have any more from those particular references but Iím presently transcribing 4 pages from the 1851 Ceylon Almanac which Iíll put on this site soon. You can add it to your site if you wish.

I would ask, however, that you amend the information on your site for Family #1074. The information appears to have been taken from a posting I made in April 1999 on this site coupled with a reply from Hugh Karunanayake together with an assumption (dangerous!).

There should be two separate entries that should read:
W.A.D. Grant Planter, Le Vallon, Pussellawa (Hughís contribution 1871/72 Fergusonís Directory)
(the D does NOT necessarily stand for Donald Ė assumption)

Donald Grant (originally from Golspie, Sutherland, Scotland.) d. 1877
The Annie Robb and Annie Elizabeth Grant entries are OK.
