Posted by: Geoff Summers Date: June 01, 2001 at 13:24:08
  of 2355

I give below a selection of names taken from the 1851 Ceylon Almanac. Spelling is as shown in the original (barring my own typos). I hope they are of help to someone. I do not have any further information and am unable to do any look ups for names not shown.
