Between 1922-1930, the North Carolina Historical Commission acquired the English Records Collection, which are transcribed copies of records from the British Public Records Office and the British Museum. The calendar of English Records provides a brief description of the records in date order, along with the citation used by the States Archives of North Carolina and the citation of the original record group used by the British Public Records Office. The bulk of the records document North Carolina colonial history, the Revolutionary War and Loyalist claims. Material found in this collection came from the Admiralty Office, Audit Office, British Museum, Chancery, Colonial Office, Home Office, Lord Chamberlain, State Papers and Treasury Office. Details and additional finding aids for these offices are also available on the Finding Aids section for Records in Foreign Collections.
