British Ancestors in the Colonies

British persons could have been sent to work in any colony under British rule. This book is an account of the services of the offices in the Colonial Service. There are names of secretaries, clerks, postmasters, architects, engineers, head masters of schools and colleges, station masters, etc... any person sent to work in a colony. At back are other lists, honours bestowed, foreign consulates in British Colonies, and on page 268 is a list of the countries and what year they became a colony.
There are also maps.

These are the British colonies covered in this book:
