Acts of appointment. 1750 - 1796.
Only very few files of the acts of appointment have been left over. A Company's officer would be appointed in Patria and his name would be entered on the ship's roll when leaving the fatherland. In Ceylon the Central Goverment distributed all men not specially appointed over the different "comptoirs", outstations and outposts, where they would get their definite appointments.
