Kikuyu District

Letters from Francis Hall to his Father Lt. Colonel Edward Hall, 1892-1901

edited by Paul Sullivan

Francis Hall was a Victorian man of the British empire who sailed from England to Mombassa in 1892 to work for the Imperial British East African Company. He wrote a series of letters to his immediate family, which were recently discovered in the Kenya National Archive. The letters are published here in their original form, along with supplementary information from the Royal Geographical Society in London, and material gleaned from the Francis Hall archive in Oxford on the early days of colonial settlement.

Kikuyu District represents an important and unique record of an early colonial administrator and settler, providing a fascinating insight into the first days of contact between the Africans and Europeans.
