The Singapore Chronicle

The Singapore Chronicle, the first newspaper in Singapore, was first issued on 1 January 1824. Originally owned by publisher and editor, Francis James Bernard, and initially a commercial newspaper, it included official government notices and details of trade and shipping. The Mission Press printed the early newspaper editions, and subsequently, the Chronicle had its own printing press at Commercial Square. Due to competition and failing business, this newspaper folded up in September 1837.
