Halfway Tree Village
Early in 1625, Thomas Warner's small colony greeted the unexpected arrival of a French ship, probably in the shallow bay in which Basseterre now sits. The French had suffered an unfortunate encounter with a Spanish warship, and they limped into St.Kitts in order to make much- needed repairs. The ship's captain Pierre Belain D'Esnambue, must have been favourable impresses with what he found, as he returned shortly afterward with a small group of colonists. Warner and the English, like the Caribs before them, at first accepted the newcomers in friendship or at least toleration. In order to avoid later disputes, the two groups of European colonists chose the great tamarind tree of Halfway Tree Village to mark the border between the French and British territories on St.Kitts. As the colonies grew and became increasingly prosperous, this borer was sorely tested.
