47RE: [St.H.Fam.Hist.] Ship Names/Passenger Lists ENG --> St Helena c.1793
- Aug 31, 2004
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
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.
