Saint Vincent

An island of St. Vincent and the Grenadines in the central Windward Islands of the West Indies. Visited by Columbus in 1498, the island proved difficult to colonize due to strong resistance from its Carib inhabitants. The British established a settlement in the mid-1700s and held the island, except for a brief occupation by the French (1779-1783), thereafter, finally defeating the Caribs in 1797.
