Indian Immigrant Ship List

The tables below are a listing of ships known to have carried Indian immigrants to Trinidad. This list was compiled by Richard Cheddie, who graciously consented to their reproduction here. A more complete list that includes ships to other colonies can be accessed by joining his Indo-West Indian Discussion Group called Batchaman.

I have divided these lists by time period to make reviewing them simpler.
