Anguilla was first settled by Native American Indians who emigrated from South America. The earliest Native American artifacts found in Anguilla date back to around 1300 BC; the remains of settlements date back to 600 AD. The Arawak name of the island seems to be Malliouhana. The date of European colonization is uncertain: some sources claim that Columbus discovered the island on his second voyage in 1493, while others claim that the island’s first European explorer was the French Hu in 1564. Gnogold nobleman and merchant sailor René Goulein d’Lautangier. The Dutch West India Company established a fort on the island in 1631. After Spanish troops destroyed the fort in 1633, the Netherlands withdrew.
Traditional reports claim that Anguilla was colonized by British colonists from St Kitts as early as 1650. However, during this early colonial period, Anguilla sometimes became a place of refuge, and the recent scholars concerned about Anguilla’s migration of other Europeans and Creoles from Saint Kitts, Barbados, Nevis and Antioch melon. The French temporarily took over the island in 1666, but returned it to British jurisdiction in accordance with the terms of the second year of the Breda Treaty. In September 1667, Major John Scott, who visited the island, wrote a letter saying that it was "in good condition" and pointed out that in July 1668, "200 or 300 people fled in the war."
Some of these early Europeans may have brought enslaved Africans. Historians confirmed that African slaves lived in the area in the early 17th century. For example, Africans in Senegal lived on St. Kitts in 1626. By 1672, there was a slave farm on Nevis, serving the Leeward Islands. Although it is difficult to pinpoint the time when Africans arrived in Anguilla, archival evidence shows that at least 16 Africans have at least 100 enslaved populations. These people seem to be from Central Africa and West Africa.
During the Austrian Succession War (1745) and the Napoleonic War (1796), French attempts to occupy the island failed.
In the early colonial period, Anguilla was managed by the British through Antigua. In 1825, it was placed under administrative control near the island of St. Kitts and later became part of St. Kitts-Nevis-Anguilla. In 1967, the United Kingdom granted Saint Kitts and Nevis full internal autonomy, and Anguilla was also included. However, contrary to the wishes of many Anguillans, the Anguilla Hari was used twice in 1967 and 1969. The Anguilla Revolution headed by Root and Ronald Webster briefly became an independent "Republic of Anguilla"; the goal of its revolution was not to establish a country independently, but to become independent of Saint Kitts and Nevis and become the United Kingdom again. colony. In March 1969, the United Kingdom sent troops to restore its rule over Anguilla; in July 1971, the United Kingdom confirmed its right to rule in the Anguilla Act. In 1980, the United Kingdom allowed Anguilla to separate from St. Kitts and Nevis and become an independent British royal colony (now an overseas possession of the United Kingdom).
