(St. Thomas was trashed by hurricanes in 1995, St. Croix a few years earlier.)....

Suggest a link You are here Anguilla Guide Island Info All about Anguilla Anguilla's History An old prision built of coral stone still stands in South Hill. In 1493, Christopher Columbus sighted the island and named it for its eel-like shape: Anguilla means "eel" in Spanish. No attempt was made to colonize it, probably because it was controlled by the notoriously fierce, warlike Caribs, who knew the island as Malliouhana, the Carib word for eel. The Caribs, a tribe of cannibals, had captured the island from the peaceful Arawak tribe and had completely eradicated them, not only from anguuilla but also from the entire Caribbean. English settlers arrived from nearby St. Kitts in 1650, followed by Irish invaders in 1688. Fleeing from Cromwell and religious persecution, they sought and found in Anguilla a faraway British territory in which they could live peacefully. This settlement is today known as Island Harbour. The French then made unsuccessful attempts at invasion in 1745 and 1796. Thereafter, the island was left in peace.

A peaceloving tribe, they were hounded out by the more aggressive Caribs, who arrived from South America in the mid-15th century. It was only a few decades later that Columbus stopped by on his second trip to the New World and crashed the party. Columbus, perhaps feeling the lack of female company shipboard, named the islands Las Vrgenes in a somewhat obscure reference to St Ursula and her 11,000 virgins. He also gave Virgin Gorda (Fat Virgin) and Anegada (Sunken Island) the names that remain today. The Spanish didn't think much of the islands, settling only to mine copper on Virgin Gorda in the early 17th century. The Europeans were harassed by Caribs and by pirates who attacked galleons carrying riches back to Spain. An assortment of colorful characters sailed through the surrounding waters, including pirates Henry Morgan, Sir John Hawkins and Blackbeard, and English sea dog Sir Francis Drake. As Spain declined as a colonial power, ownership of the islands shifted about until the Dutch established a permanent settlement on Tortola in 1648.

Extractions: LOCAL NEWS By Angela Burns Piper It is not too early for the British Virgin Islands to look at the political and historical realities and consider what next, as far as the establishment of a Caribbean Court of Justice is concerned, according to Chief Justice of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court, His Lordship Sir Denis Byron, KCMG. He made the statement as he gave a presentation Tuesday evening as part of the McWelling Todman Memorial Lecture Series. The series is hosted by the BVI Bar Association in honour of the late Dr. McWelling Todman, CBE, Q.C, the first indigenous Virgin Islander to practice law in the Virgin Islands and one who has had a distinguished career as an educator and public servant. The challenge to begin such a series was issued by local attorney Mr. Gerard Farara Q.C. earlier this year. This was the third such lecture to be presented. He delivered the first lecture and the second was presented by Mr. Joseph S. Archibald Q.C. In laying the foundation for his discourse, the Chief Justice noted that before the Second World War, the Privy Council was the final Court of Appeal for over 160 countries worldwide or more than one third of the world. However, over the years it lost most of its overseas jurisdictions where courts, after attaining independence and sovereignty from the colonial empire, set up their own indigenous final Courts of Appeal.

Extractions: This paper provides an overview of some of the major trends in the historical development of government and the political system in the British Virgin Islands (BVI). The scope of this presentation ranges from early habitation to the end of the 20th century. Historically, government and the political system in the BVI have been transformed from transient independent Chiefdoms during occupation by the first settlers, to a peculiar variant of British colonialism that endures until today. One aim of this exercise is to provide a better understanding of the relationships between the colonial state, civil society, and the economy within the context of Virgin Islands development. The main purpose however, is not to provide in depth analysis of historical developments, but rather, to document significant changes in political development, with limited treatment of economic trends during the late 20th century. Section 1 highlights political developments during the first three epochs, covering the historical period between 1080 and 1949. Section 2 highlights the foundations of the fourth political epoch by defining the political arrangements adopted between 1950 and 1976. It also illuminates the importance of domestic and external relations vis-à-vis economic development. Section 3 provides analysis of the more 'modern' approach to economic development that characterized the fourth epoch. Finally, Section 4 highlights the salient features of economic development during the fourth epoch. Overall, this paper covers the historical breadth of BVI political development, offering insights into the role of government and the political system in the process of economic development.
