This article traces the history of the so-called Codrington Papers, created by the Caribbean governors of the late 17th century called Christopher Codrington, father and son. Their history as a collection, repositories which hold or have held them, ownership of the physical documents, to the factual information they contain, or to their interpretation is all contested within issues of race, colonialism, politics and intellectual authority.
