"The first British colony in Western India was founded at Surat in 1618. The Bombay Presidency was created when the city of Bombay was obtained by the East India Company from the King of EnglandCharles II who had in turn acquired it as a part of his dowry from Portugal on his marriage to the Portuguese queen Catherine in 1661. The Presidency was brought under British Parliament control along with other parts of British India through the Pitt's India Act. Major territories acquisitions were made during the Anglo-Maratha Wars when the whole of the Peshwa's dominions and much of the Gaekwad's sphere of influence were annexed to the Bombay Presidency in different stages till 1818. Aden was annexed in 1839 while Sind was annexed by the Company in 1843 after defeating the Talpur dynasty in the Battle of Hyderabadand was made part of the Bombay Presidency.

The Bombay Presidency was first established at Surat in the 17th century as a trading post for the English East India Company, but it later grew to encompass much of western and central India, as well as part of the Arabian Peninsula and areas later included in Pakistan."
