The East Indiamen of the British East India Company stopped at many ports on their voyages from Britain at India and China in the 17th to 19th centuries, both on the way and as destinations. A number of the places were also the locations of EIC factories, i.e., trading posts.

In many cases the spelling of the names of the ports has changed between then and now. One purpose of this list is to link, where possible, the names as given in ships' logs with the modern name. Names in italics represent cases where the modern and older name are different.
