George Frere
A Short History of Barbados... to the End of the Year 1767. G.Frere 1768. 1st ed
J.Dodsley. Printed in London in 1768, George Frere's scarce volume details the history of British settlement on the Caribbean island of Barbados. The book dates the island's discovery by the British to somewhere between 1615 and 1624 when a ship called 'The Olive' landed on the island on a return voyage from Guinea. It further states that in 1624, thirty crewmen from another British ship landed on the island and stayed to found a settlement. The book goes on to detail the growth of a large community of white settlers who in turn, felt it necessary to import larger and larger numbers of enslaved Africans to farm the land. The wavering fortunes of the British expatriots are detailed over the passage of time, with disputes with the British Crown over taxes and levies seemingly a regular feature.
