St. Lucia Marquis Estate History
The history of Marquis Estate dates back to the 1700's. As the island was contended for between the French and the English, Marquis estate and the north east region of St. Lucia was of up most importance. The production and exportation of sugar was the first commercial use of this estate and the vast bay made it easy to commute from ship to land. the Marquis river made it ideal for commercial use as it allowed the use of the water wheel. More recently, the estate was ran by Harry Atkinson as a thriving banana plantation, largest on the island during its time. Its location made it ideal once again as it is a short distance to the capital city of Castries to the west and its deep bay which allows for major commercial exportation.
