  • ADMINISTRATIVE/ BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY

    The governors of New South Wales regularly forwarded despatches to the British Government giving detailed reports on all matters of major and minor importance. Duplicates and triplicates of all despatches were forwarded and they were handwritten either by the Governor himself, his secretary or a clerk. Many despatches also contained enclosures.
  • Scope and Content
    These are handwritten duplicate copies kept in New South Wales, of the original despatches sent to the Secretary of State for Colonies (Colonial Office) and now held in the Public Records Office (PRO), London (PRO Class: CO201). The Australian Joint Copying Project microfilmed the original PRO volumes of despatches and microfilm copies are held in the Mitchell Library.
