I have consulted the Dutch Thombo (Land)Register of 1753 (Galle District), available at the National Archives in Colombo. One of the entries of interest to me, refers to the earlier 'old thombo' register - I presume this is the 'Paranagam Thombo' of 1696. But the National Archives does not have a copy of this. Does anyone know if a copy of the latter is available elsewhere (e.g. in Holland)?
