proprietary colony = ιδιόκτητη αποικία

Proprietary colony, in British American colonial history, a type of settlement dominating the period 1660–90, in which favourites of the British crown were awarded huge tracts of land in the New World to supervise and develop. Before that time, most of the colonies had been financed and settled under the jurisdiction of joint-stock companies operating under charters granted by the crown.

Ο κυβερνήτης των αποικιών αυτών αποκαλούνταν proprietor ή proprietary governor

Proprietary Governors were individuals authorized to govern proprietary colonies. Under the proprietary system, individuals or companies were granted commercial charters by the King of England to establish colonies. These proprietors then selected the governors and other officials in the colony. This system was used to establish several colonies on the island of Newfoundland. The provinces of Maryland, Carolina and several other colonies in the Americas were initially established under the proprietary system.

These colonies were distinct from royal colonies in that they were commercial enterprises established under authority of the crown. Proprietary Governors had legal responsibilities over the colony as well as responsibilities to shareholders to ensure the security of their investments.

Το ιδιόκτητη αποικία είναι το καλύτερο που μπορώ να σκεφτώ σε μια τυπολογία όπου royal colony=βασιλική αποικία και charter colony (ή corporate colony)=εταιρική αποικία (Corporate Colonies. British colonies in the United States whose governments were trading-company charters or were modeled upon such charters)

Καλή επιλογή η ιδιόκτητη αποικία. (Προς στιγμή δοκίμασα και το ιδιωτική αποικία).

ίσως ιδιωτικών συμφερόντων αλλά νομίζω το ιδιόκτητη είναι καλύτερο.
