Excerpt from Cyprus Under the Turks, 1571-1878: A Record Based on the Archives of the English Consulate in Cyprus Under the Levant Company and After
Thus it is that the records of Turkish rule in Cyprus are few. Its solitary chronicler, the Archimandrite Kyprianos, published his history of his native island in 1788 for the ninety years yet to elapse before the British occupation we have nothing in print beyond the descriptions of occasional travellers, and sundry references in histories of Greece to the rising of 1821. There exist, however, in the island certain archives of the British Consulate in Cyprus, beginning in 1710, and continuing, intermittently, until the abolition of the Consulate, consequent upon the British occupation, in 1878. These archives, examined here for the first time, enable us to fill, partially at all events, a gap in the history of Cyprus, which the island's distinguished past and promising future should no longer suffer to remain.
