Description

This collection contains the financial and administrative records of the Company of Scotland Trading to Africa and the Indies (also known as the Darien Company). The documents cover the period from the company’s formation in 1694 as a rival to the East India Company to its dissolution due to debts incurred in pursuit of the ill-fated Darien scheme. The latter is widely regarded as being the chief factor which gave rise to the 1707 Act of Union. 

These papers are an invaluable resource for those who wish to understand the sweeping political and economic changes which led to the creation of the British state.

Note: This collection is accompanied by an online guide.
