"Straits Settlements" from the Encyclopaedia Britannica

"British crown colony on the Strait of Malacca, comprising four trade centres, Penang, Singapore, Malacca, and Labuan, established or taken over by the British East India Company.   The British settlement at Penang was founded in 1786, at Singapore in 1819;   Malacca, occupied by the British during the Napoleonic Wars, was transferred to the East India Company in 1824.   The three territories were established as a crown colony in 1867.   Labuan, which became part of Singapore Settlement in 1907, was constituted a fourth separate settlement in 1912."
