Jewish Settlements in the French Colonies in the Caribbean (Martinique, Guadeloupe, Haiti, Cayenne) and the "Black Code"

THE DUTCH AND THE ENGLISH competed in attracting Spanish-Portuguese Jewish settlers to their colonies at the end of the seventeenth century, especially those Jews who were forced to leave Dutch Brazil in 1654 and had experience with tropical agriculture. Such people were considered an excellent colonizing element for the Wild Coast of the Guianas — British Suriname and Dutch Berbice, Demerara, Essequibo, Pomeroon, and Cayenne. The colonial authorities offered the Jewish settlers what they needed most: rights and privileges that they could not obtain in other parts of the world. The settlers' knowledge of Spanish and Portuguese also made the Jews attractive in the Caribbean area, for they could facilitate illicit trade with the Spanish and Portuguese colonies in South America Jewish Settlements in the French Colonies in the Caribbean (Martinique, Guadeloupe, Haiti, Cayenne) and the "Black Code"Mordechai ArbellTHE DUTCH AND THE ENGLISH competed in attracting Spanish-Portuguese Jewish settlers to their colonies at the end
