In "A brief background of Barbados" we've the following, in a neat compendious shape, an background and outline of 1 of the easiest islands lower than the British executive within the West Indies; the fabrics of which seem to be conscientiously and in truth accrued, and disposed in an agreeable demeanour. The indifferent histories of the colonies, finished by way of really apt population, will do extra towards informing us of the true nation and pursuits of such locations, than partial representations despatched hither, frequently to reply to own perspectives, and to ahead measures might be unprofitable on both side.

The Portuguese visited the island in 1536, yet they left it unclaimed, with their simply remnants being an advent of untamed hogs for an outstanding provide of meat at any time when the island used to be visited. An English send, the Olive Blossom, arrived in Barbados in 1625; its males took ownership of it within the identify of King James I. In 1627, the 1st everlasting settlers arrived from England, and it grew to become an English and later British colony.

"THE writer of the next sheets hath endeavoured faithfully and impartially to narrate the occasions that main issue the traditional colony of Barbados. His reason to this try used to be in a point a gratification of his entertainment, via filling up a few relaxation hours, in a way now not absolutely dead to himself or the general public; yet mostly to shew, that Barbados hath continually preserved a uniform, and regular attachment to nice Britain, and hence is intitled to the love and indulgence of the mum nation. everyone evidently desire to obtain a few account in their local kingdom; of its structure, and its development to energy and opulence.
