Description

Excerpt from The Colonial Empire of Great Britain, Especially in Its Religious Aspect: A Lecture, Addressed, in the Town Hall, at Stourbridge, to the Amblecote Church of England Young Men's Association, on December 3, 1849 This immediately points to the essential part of the definition of a Colony, which I may now proceed to give. The pure and rigid definition of a Colony of a given country is this: a previously unoccupied district, peopled and inhabited by emigrants from that country, or their descendants. Of course this definition would include a district previously occupied by aborigines, but from which they are exterminated or removed, as it becomes um occupied before the emigrants inhabit it.
