The Black Carib Wars

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter describes events after St. Vincent was formally returned to British rule on 1 January 1784. The Caribs adopted a conciliatory stance toward their new, unwanted neighbors. While local authorities lobbied for the Caribs’ removal from the island, the metropolitan government was more circumspect. British restraint was conditioned by the daunting prospect of launching a military campaign to dislodge the Caribs, which was viewed as having little chance of success.

Keywords:   British rule, Black Caribs, St. Vincent
