HISTORICAL AND GEOGRAPHICAL DATA
Claims that St Vincent and the Grenadines was sighted by Columbus in 1492 have been disputed as there is no evidence that he ever landed on the island. The island received its name in 1498. The first settlers, the Arawaks, were partly displaced by the Caribs, who strongly resisted European settlement until the remaining yellow Caribs, fearing total extinction, encouraged and assisted the French to establish a settlement in 1719. The island changed hands between France and Britain several times thereafter, until 1783 when it was ceded to Britain under the Treaty of Versailles. In 1969 St Vincent and the Grenadines became an internally self-governing State. Independence followed on October 27, 1979. St Vincent and the Grenadines comprises 32 islands and cays located 60° 56' west longitude and 13° 15' north longitude. The chain of islands is situated 100 miles west of Barbados, 75 miles north of Grenada, and 21 miles south of St Lucia. Only eight (8) of the 32 islands are inhabited, with St Vincent, the mainland, being the largest, measuring a total of 133 square miles and possessing an area of 85,120 acres. The remaining seven islands comprising the Grenadines are located to the south of St Vincent.
