I was looking for the whereabouts of a certain Robert ARMSTRONG who
was an employee of the East India Company and was also involved with
Sir John Malcolm of Bombay during his embassies to Persia. The period
would likely be around 1800 but no later than 1821, as he (Robert)
returned to Scotland in that year.
My reason for contacting this list is that I noticed a Robert
ARMSTRONG in the 1814 census for St Helena and wondered if there was
a connection. Is there any way of obtaining more information on the
individual in the census, for example his country of birth?
