Aims and objectives

The earliest records date to 1673, with the document sequence continuing through to the end of EIC governance in 1834, when the island became a Crown Colony. The project involves the digitisation of over 350 volumes, which as a whole capture the politics, society and everyday life of this remote but highly significant British possession.
