William Simmons or Simmonds (1803 - 1835) Support Documents

I already have a list of all of the family related documents found and viewed at the British Library Asian and African Studies Reading Room including those belonging to William.

Thanks to colonial bureaucracy, William Simmons life and estate after his death, has been particularly well documented. To simplify locating the documents found relating to William, I list them below:
