At Betty's Hope, Codrington's original sugar estate, visitors can see a fully-restored sugar mill.
Most Antiguans are of African lineage, descendants of slaves brought to the island centuries ago to labor in the sugarcane fields.
An enterprising man, Codrington had come to Antigua to find out if the island would support the sort of large-scale sugar cultivation that already flourished elsewhere in the Caribbean.
His initial efforts proved to be quite successful, and over the next fifty years sugar cultivation on Antigua exploded.
It would be difficult to overestimate the impact on Antigua's history of the arrival, one fateful day in 1684, of Sir Christopher Codrington.
Long after the Siboney had moved on, Antigua was settled by the pastoral, agricultural Arawaks (35-1100 A.
D.), who were then displaced by the Caribs--an aggressive people who ranged all over the Caribbean.
The earliest European contact with the island was made by Christopher Columbus during his second Caribbean voyage (1493), who sighted the island in passing and named it after Santa Maria la Antigua, the miracle-working saint of Seville.
European settlement, however, didn't occur for over a century, largely because of Antigua's dearth of fresh water and abundance of determined Carib resistance.
