Administrative history

The Executive Council was established under an Order-in-Council to James Stirling dated 1 November 1830. This Order-in-Council was included in Despatch No. 2 (dated 28 April 1831) along with James Stirling's Commission as Governor. The Order-in-Council provides the authority for James Stirling to appoint a Legislative Council, the members of which would also comprise his Executive Council.

The Despatch reached the Colony in December 1831 and the Councils were duly constituted. The Executive Council met for the first time on 6 February 1832.
