Diaries and consultations, 1775-1797; miscellaneous papers, 1704-1769. 24 volumes.Origin: Anjengo was probably first visited by the Company in the 1680s, but a factory was not established there until 1697. Situated on the Travancore coast, the town became a trading centre for pepper and high-quality calicoes. Over the eighteenth century, however, trade began to decline and during the Carnatic Wars the factory was used as a depot for military stores. The factory ceased to operate in 1813. Between 1727 and 1775, copies of the factory's records were sent to Bombay, from where copies were sent to London. From 1775, copies of diaries and consultations were sent to London directly.Related resources: Letters from Anjengo appear in the 'Abstracts of letters received from Bombay' sub-series (IOR/E/4/449-458). Two volumes in the Miscellaneous Factory Records contain copies of documents relating to Anjengo and Attinga (IOR/G/40/21-22).

- East India Company Factory Records (1608-1858). A 'factory' was a trading post where a number of merchants, or factors, resided. When company ships arrived at the factories, ships' merchants were thus enabled to exchange goods for trading immediately instead of having to wait to make deals with local merchants. Factories were run by a chief factor and a council of factors. The 'Factory Records' is an artificially-created sub-fonds; the records of individual Company factories consist mainly of consultations (records of administrative decisions and of correspondence), diaries (records of daily activities), letters received, copies of letters sent and collections of papers on particular subjects. and AMDigital Reference: IOR/G/1/6.
