7. Archives transferred from China to the Netherlands

he fairly large archives of the Dutch establishment in Canton are in the National Archives of the Netherlands in the Netherlands, where they arrived in 1863 with the other holdings transferred from Asia. As far as their composition is concerned, they are of the same kind as the archives from the other establishments: resoluties and dagregisters, incoming and outgoing letters, protocollen van civiele akten, and miscellaneous documents. In Canton also the liquidation of the voc did not cause a break in the archives. The documents cover the years up to 1826. There is a recent inventory(15).
