Outstanding Anguilla, part of the British West Indies, is a top-grade destination in the East Caribbean. Anguilla is credited with an Amerindian influence of tribes from South America. Originating naming credit goes to French explorer Pierre Laudonnaire who visited Anguilla around 1565 but some reputable sources have argued against that stating Christopher Columbus first sighted the island in 1493. What’s more, the Dutch have even purported to have constructed a fort on the island of Anguilla around 1631. No proof has been established to support this fact.
Anguilla was first organized into colonies by English settlers from Saint Kitts circa 1650 and set about sowing and harvesting corn and tobacco fields. Harvesting these crops was unsteady and drought was common.
Anguilla was governed and ruled by the British until all the way to the early 19th century. Then it was turned into a single British dependency via incorporation along with the other areas of Nevis and Saint Kitts. After a short time as an independent region before 1970 Anguilla became a separate British dependency and now the term was coined as a British Overseas Territory around 1980.
Just recently Anguilla has become a booming tourist mecca and tourism continues to be a mainstay of island dependence and subsistence along with fishing. Recently also is the recent growth of the financial sector. Modern Anguilla now consists primarily of African descent and to a lesser extent an English/ European background.
