The National Library of Australia gratefully acknowledges the contribution of the other foundation AJCP partners, the State Library of New South Wales and The National Archives of the UK, and all other organisations which supported the work of the AJCP, the world's most extensive collaborative copying project, operating from 1948 to 1997.

Introduction

Scope and Contents

Colonial Office records constitute by far the largest group of records filmed by the Australian Joint Copying Project (AJCP). As most of the Colonial Office Series relate to specific colonies they have largely been filmed comprehensively (with some exceptions). In this respect the Colonial Office copying has differed from that of most of the other record groups.

The Australian Joint Copying Project filmed Series and Pieces from the following Colonial Office Series:

Correspondence with the colonies: Entry books and registers of correspondence

Records of the Chief Clerk's and General Departments

Records of Local Bodies and other Colonial Miscellanea

Acts, Ordinances and Proclamations from the Colonies

Sessional Papers from the Colonies

Records of the Emigration Departments

Records of the Accounts Department

Government Gazettes from the Colonies

Records of the Dominions Division

Records of Economic Departments

Administrative History

As the department chiefly responsible for the administration of the Australian colonies and for the formulation of imperial policy, the Colonial Office was the largest group of records filmed by the Australian Joint Copying Project (AJCP).

The Colonial Office was responsible for the administration of the Crown colonies and for communications between Britain and self-governing colonies. Its records contain an enormous amount of information on the six Australian colonies, New Zealand, New Guinea and Fiji.

Until the colonies became self-governing in the 1850s the respective Governors exercised total power. Their despatches dealing with all aspects of colonial life make up the main series of records. Of most importance are the Enclosures accompanying each despatch - statistical returns, reports of officials, letters and petitions from private individuals and newspaper and other printed items, many of which have marginal annotations made by departmental officials.

From 1782 to 1801 colonial affairs were in the hands of the Home Secretary. In 1794 a third secretary of state was appointed, with responsibility for managing the war against France, and in 1801 he became the Secretary of State for War and Colonies. After 1815 military work declined sharply and from then onwards the department was known as the Colonial Office. In 1854 the Secretary of State relinquished his residual military responsibilities.

The organisation and record keeping of the Colonial Office remained remarkably stable until 1925, when a separate Dominions Office was created. The Colonial Office remained responsible for crown colonies and dependent territories. As colonies gained independence, its importance diminished and in 1966 it merged with the Commonwealth Relations Office to form the Commonwealth Office.

Item Descriptions

Fonds CO. Correspondence with the colonies: Entry books and registers of correspondence, 1783 - 1951

Correspondence with the colonies, entry books and registers of correspondence relating to the administration of individual colonies. Also includes a few records of governments of colonial and mandated territories that were sent to London for various reasons.

The earlier original correspondence was at first simply the incoming dispatches of the colonial governor, with which may or may not be found enclosures. In the course of time the original correspondence came to include office minutes and drafts of outgoing despatches as well as correspondence from other sources.

Dates used in the this finding aid refer to those of the records selected for filming by the Australian Joint Copying Project (AJCP) rather than to the date range of the original Series or File.

Series CO 13. South Australia: Original Correspondence, 1831 - 1900

Correspondence of the Colonial Office relating to South Australia. Records filmed by the Australian Joint Copying Project (AJCP) include: correspondence of the Colonial Office consisting of despatches and their enclosures, reports and other papers from Governors, letters from public offices in the United Kingdom and letters from individuals, societies and companies in the United Kingdom and South Australia.
