Description

The records comprise Foreign Office documentation (FO 27) concerning French activities in the Pacific with some coverage of the Dutch East Indies and the South East Asia area.

The copying has been selective; in many cases only one or two letters from a piece have been filmed. Most of the correspondence is between the British Consulate in Paris and the Foreign Office. There are also reports from Consulates in the Pacific, enclosing French communications.

The records concern French expeditions to the Pacific; French interest in Australia and New Zealand; Catholic-Protestant missions and rivalry in the Pacific; the annexation of Tahiti; the New Hebrides and New Caledonia and the establishment of French colonies and penal settlements; the escape of convicts to Australia and Australian and French naval activities; trade, tariff, and postal matters in the Pacific.
