      Frank, They are in the British Library,
      If you want to search the indexes, first go to the National Archives website http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/ and search for say ‘St Helena muster’ and then click on the link. It will direct you to the British Library site. The musters are in bound volumes  indexed under IOR/L/MIL/13/1-14 eg from 1789 to 1859. The early ones just give Company, name and rank but after 1813 they also give the name of the ship they arrives on, where they came from, previous occupation, age. Unfortunately  if you check succeeding listings, the info is not always the same! Presumeably it was transcribed and they were a bit sloppy about it. Anyway, hope this helps a bit!
