East India Company offers access to a unique collection of India Office Records from the British Library, London. Containing royal charters, correspondence, trading diaries, minutes of council meetings and reports of expeditions, among other document types, this resource charts the history of British trade and rule in the Indian subcontinent and beyond from 1599 to 1947.
This collection provides a unique perspective on the complex geopolitical circumstances of India during the 18th century, and how the foundations of British colonialism were established through the activities and campaigns of the East India Company. Drawing from the personal and professional papers of two East India Company employees, Colonel Robert Clive and Brigadier-General John Carnac, the collection offers an insight into how the East India Company became increasingly influential after the weakening of the Mughal Empire during the 18th century.
Robert Clive was a British military commander and eventual Governor of Bengal. Through his political and military actions in India, he amassed vast personal wealth and played a key role in laying the foundations for British domination of India for the next few centuries. John Carnac served as Commander-in-Chief of the East India Company in India between 1760-1761, defeating the French supported forces of the Mughal Empire. He worked in tandem with Clive as they systematically expanded British influence on the subcontinent.
Of particular interest are events such as the pivotal Battle of Plassey in 1757, the ‘Black Hole of Calcutta’ incident, and the British military expedition against the Dutch in 1759. Together, the the papers enable researchers to study how the burgeoning commercial and political power of the East India Company turned into monolithic rule of the Indian subcontinent.
