The British Public Record Office was created by the Public Record Office Act of 1838. Its purpose was to make the contents of public records accessible to students. In 2003, the Public Record Office and the Historical Manuscripts Commission combined and formed the National Archives of Great Britain.
This collection consists of a microfilm copy of records pertaining to Georgia located in the National Archives of Great Britain. The records include Georgia colonial laws, 1773-1781 and Georgia loyalist claims extracts. The loyalist claims were submitted to commissioners appointed by Parliament to inquire into the American loyalist cases, in the hope of regaining property lost or confiscated when they fled the state.
Original records in the National Archives, Great Britain.
A microfilm reader is required to access this collection.
