This chapter examines the expansion of the Julfan trade network in the Indian Ocean and the Julfan presence in Mughal India, Southeast Asia, and the little-studied Julfan community in Spanish-controlled Manila in the Philippines, which served as a gateway to sporadic Julfan relations with Acapulco and Mexico City in the New World. Julfan trade settlements originated in the seventeenth century, and thus can be directly traced to the founding of New Julfa in 1605. Others, however, were “relics” of the merchants of Old Julfa. Julfan merchants had settled in Bengal (the richest province of Mughal India) during the first half of the seventeenth century. This chapter also looks at the community of Julfan merchants in Tibet and China, as well as Armenian settlements in Burma.
