I have managed to determine that Christopher Puddicombe was the Captain of a ship called the Mayaram Dayaram on 18 August 1842 in Bombay, India. This date is the birth date for his daughter, Ellen Puddicombe. Ellen subsequently married my GGGrandfather Charles Yates Reed on 28 April 1860.
Does ANYONE have any information on either Ellen or Christopher, particularly where Christopher may have been born in England ??
Any help or clues much appreciated.
