The Confederate Government allowed all foreign consuls living in the South in 1861, to remain there. A British Consulate was located in Savannah, Georgia, at the Northwest corner of Bay and Bull Streets. Edmund Molyneux (d. 1864) was the British consul in Savannah, Georgia, 1831-June 1863. Allen Fullarton also served as consul ca. 1859-1864. They were succeeded after the end of the Civil War by W. Tasker Smith.

Correspondence, certificates, and printed material relating to the Confederate policy of conscripting foreigners who overstayed their time limits, proofs of citizenship, and to the blockade of Confederate ports. Correspondents include Georgia Governor Joseph E. Brown, Confederate Secretary of State, Judah P. Benjamin, Confederate Secretary of War, G.W. Randolph, the British minister in Washington D.C., Richard B.P. Lyons, and British consuls in Savannah.
