In 1786 the E.I.C. acquired Penang (from the Sultanate of Kedah), in 1819 Singapore (from the Sultanate of Johor) and in 1824 Malacca (from the Netherlands). In 1826 these three possessions were combined as the Straits Settlements, and they were placed under the Presidency of Bengal. In 1867 the Straits Settlements were declared a separate Crown Colony. The Cocos (or Keeling) Islands (hitherto under Ceylon) were placed under the Straits Settlements in 1886, Labuan in 1906. Frim 1942 to 1945 the Straits Settlements (except for the Cocos Islands) were under Japanese occupation. In 1946 the Straits Settlements were dissolved. The Cocos Islands and Christmas Island until 1957 were administered by Singapore and since by Australia. Labuan became part of British North Borneo. Penang and Malacca joined the Federation of Malaya (1946) and in 1963 the Republic of Malaysia. Singapore in 1963 joined Malaysia, only to be expelled from the latter in 1965.
