CHAPMAN, Isham J

CHAPMAN, Isham J. 1??? — 1???. British Colonial Officer in Ceylon. Captain of Royal Artillery. Possible relatives in I.C.S. (see Buckland). The first article is based on field observations made in 1828, the second on information obtained from others.

One Captain Isham Chapman died in 1852, but the rare name seems to be quite common in the family and he seems to have been naval officer (he was probably Isham Fleming Ch. who was no longer in active service after 1826).
