      I would guess that the P stood for ‘Princess’. The following website gives the names of the ships in the EIC service

      http://www.mariners-l.co.uk/EICintro.htm . Sadly for my theory, the last ship of that name went out of service in 1792 so unless your dates are out by a year, this doesn’t fit. I notice on your subject line you use circa 1793 so possibly it is still OK.


      There are some passenger lists available in the India Office section of the BL and I would guess that they may be on LDS microfilm. You might even find that the ship’s log book is still available. I can’t give you any details.

      I have established that my GGGG Father arrived in St Helena in 1793
      aboard a ship called "P_____ Royal"

      1. Can anyone identify the "P" word for me?

      2. To confirm the date of travel are there passenger lists for this ship
      and date?

      I obtained this information by laboriously looking through the microfilm
      of the St Helena East India Co. Military Musters and Pensions at the
      local LDS Family History Centre.

      This is the St Helena Institute's 'Forum for Family History'.
