The Confiscation Process of an Inheritance at the End of the 18th Century: Ebubekir Pasha, the Vice Governor (Mutesellim) of Antalya Sanjak
The muhallefât registers, which are an important source in economic and social history studies, refer to the records of people whose properties were confiscated by the state. These registers are also important in terms of revealing the new subjects of the provincial government mechanism and their relations with the state. In this context, the records of the muhallefât belonging to Ebubekir Pasha, an a‘yân of Antalya, not only show the extent of the wealth of the local powers but also give an adequate idea about the state and society relations of the period. Indeed, with the beginning of the late XVI. century, the state's efforts to restore its authority in the provinces and giving wide powers to this group with the concern of protecting both tax resources and reâyâ brought them to the forefront in the provincial administration by the XVIII. century. Especially at the end of the XVIII. century, with the effect of the Ottoman-Russian and Ottoman-Austrian wars, the complicated period in which the state was in the need for both financial and military support of the local powers opened the way for them to regain their old administrative and financial rights, despite the abuses of the a'yan group. In this context, the reappointment of Ebubekir Ağa, one of the local elites of the sanjak of Antalya, to the position of mîrmîrân, is one of the most prominent examples of the reconciliation between the state and society.
