Royal African Company: How the Stuarts Birthed Britain’s Slave Trade by Derek Wilson

..”APART FROM THE THREE SLAVING VOYAGES LED BY JOHN HAWKINS IN THE 1560’S, THE ENGLISH SHOWED LITTLE INTEREST IN WEST AFRICA. SLAVING WAS RESUMED BY THE GUINEA COMPANY(FOUNDED IN 1618) AFTER ABOUT 1640 TO PROVIDE CHEAP LABOUR FOR THE NEW BARBADOS SUGAR PLANTATIONS, BUT THIS VENTURE ALWAYS STRUGGLED AND ITS ASSETS WERE ACQUIRED IN 1657 BY THE EAST INDIA COMPANY, WHICH HAD LITTLE INTEREST IN THE GOLD COAST.

“THE LOCAL RULERS REMAINED IN CONTROL OF INTER-CONTINENTAL COMMERCE AND EUROPEAN AGENTS HAD NO POWER BEYOND THEIR TRADING POSTS. ONE REASON FOR THIS WAS THE PREVALENCE OF DISEASES TO WHICH THE VISITORS WERE PRONE, AND AS A RESULT THE GUINEA COAST WAS KNOWN AS THE “WHITE MAN’S GRAVEYARD.”
