Burma before 1824 Upper Burma 1852-1886

Burma, 1824-1852

In the FIRST ANGLO-BURMESE WAR of 1824-1826, Burma had lost the provinces of Arakan and Tenasserim. The TREATY OF YANDABOO (Feb. 24th 1826) restored peace. Britain was represented in the Burmese capital of Ava by a British resident.
Anglo-Burmese relations were difficult; in 1837 the British Resident left the country, from 1840 onward Britain was not represented at all in Ava. A number of minor incidents occurred over the following years, which in 1852 were given as an incentive by the East India Company for the occupation and subsequent annexation of Lower Burma (Pegu) in the SECOND ANGLO-BURMESE WAR.
