The province of Tenasserim in 1793 was ceded by the Kingdom of Siam to the Kingdom of Burma, which again ceded it to the East India Company in 1826 (Bengal Presidency). In 1858 the E.I.C. territories became British Crown Colony. Following the British acquisitions of Lower Burma (1852) and Upper Burma (1886), Tenasserim was attached to Burma, which was separated from British India in 1937.
