History of Andaman and Nicobar Islands

In December 1788 and 1789 Surveyor Lt. Archibald Blair surveyed the Islands. The area selected for settlement was Port Chatham (Present day Chatham Island).
After two years (1792) the settlement at Chatham Island was shifted to North Andaman and named as Port Cornwallis (Near Current Day Aerial Bay in North Andaman). Soon the North Andaman settlement at Port Cornwallis was abandoned in 1796 due to health issues of the settlement population. In March 1858, Penal settlement was again established near Port Chatham with a first batch of 200 convicts from the 1857 uprising or First war of independence. These islands were occupied by the Japanese from 1942 to 1945 during World War II.
