Inventory of the archives of the Dutch government in the divisions of Galle (Matara) and Jaffnapatnam 1640-1796

Description of the Subordinate Components

Part I    The Commandement of Galle.

C   Boards and Committees

2   The Tombo commisioners, Galle.

b   "Hoofd" and Land tombos of the Galle district

(1)    "Hoofd" and Land tombos (17th century)
1. As Mr. Mottau sees his inventory as an extension of the inventory by Miss Jurriaanse, he starts numbering where she left of. This is the reason why this catalogue starts at no. 5031 instead of nr. 1.
2. This numbering is however not in consecutive numerical order and may be confusing to users. Therefore a reference list has been added to facilitate finding the numbers cited in literature.
3. The inventory of the seventeenth century land tombos made by Mr. J.S. Wigboldus has been included in Appendix I. Although the list has been mentioned in the catalogue, it has been shown separately as it was not made by Mr. Mottau and as the pattern is not the same. Mr. Wigboldus starts with the Dutch placenames, the Ceylonese following in brackets; Mr. Mottau in his list of eighteenth century tombos gives the Ceylonese names only.
4. The inventory of the seventeenth century land tombos made by Mr. J.S. Wigboldus has been inserted in this section. In the original printed catalogue it has been shown seperated as an appendix as it was not made by Mr. Mottau and the pattern is not the same as Mottau's inventory of the eighteenth century land tombos. Mr. Wigboldus starts with the Dutch placenames, the Ceylonese following in brackets; Mr. Mottau in his list of eighteenth century tombos gives the Ceylonese names only.
