History of the Atlantic Cable & Undersea Communications
from the first submarine cable of 1850 to the worldwide fiber optic network

W.T. Henley Archives
by Allan Green

Aware of the problems experienced by researchers looking into the history of the Henley Company (particularly family history enquiries), I thought it would be useful to gather all the available archive listings in one place.

There are three main archive collections in the UK relating to the Company: The papers titled "HEN:" at the Science Museum Archive and Library at Wroughton; the collection of material at the Porthcurno Telegraph Museum which I rescued from the Henley Gravesend site about ten years ago; and some papers generated during my “Henley research period,” which are also at Porthcurno but are not indexed.

Whilst the Porthcurno collection is catalogued (on the database) with, in most cases, quite a lot of detail, it is not available on line, and it will be some time before this is available. The Henley archive at the Science Museum is not detailed in their on-line catalogue index but a printed hand-list is available at Wroughton.

With the kind permission of the Porthcurno Telegraph Museum and the Science Museum, their complete archive index records are presented on this page.

My own research papers at PK will be sorted and indexed and will eventually be included into the main PK archive.
