Trivia Time Did You Know…?

On May 10 1655, a body of English sailors and soldiers landed at Passage Fort, in Kingston Harbour, and marched towards Spanish Town.

They were led by Admiral Penn and General Venables, who had been sent by Oliver Cromwell to capture the island of Hispaniola. When Penn and Venables failed to take the city of Santo Domingo they sailed on to Jamaica. On May 11, the Spaniards surrendered. They were allowed a few days to leave the island. Some of them went to Cuba, but others secretly went to the north side of Jamaica. .
