TREATY OF LONDON 1824

In 1824, during the Napoleanic Wars in Europe, the Dutch reached a treaty with Great Britain under the “Treaty of London 1824”

The Dutch transferred to Great Britain the ‘Town and Fort of Malacca and its Dependencies’ in which Britain and the Netherlands in return took over Bencoolen in Sumatra which was controlled by Britain.

This move was done to prevent the French from getting Malacca should they defeat Holland in the then Napoleanic Wars.

It should be interesting to get a copy of this Treaty of London 1824 as a record of this important document.
