Brief history of the slave trade to the Mascarenes in the eighteenth century You may also enjoy this book

Ile de France refers to the island of Mauritius off the coast of Madagascar.

  • The Portuguese (1511) The Portuguese did not stay long as they were not interested in these islands.
  • The Dutch period (1598-1710) They are remembered for the introduction of sugar-cane, domestic animals and deer.
  • The French period (1715-1810) The island was under the administration of the French East India Company which maintained its presence until 1767. From that year until 1810, the island was in charge of officials appointed by the French Government, except for a brief period during the French Revolution, when the inhabitants set up a government virtually independent of France.
  • The British period (1810-1968) The abolition of slavery had important repercussions on the socio-economic and demographic fields. The planters turned to India, from where they brought a large number of indentured labourers to work in the sugar cane fields. The Indian immigrants, who were of both Hindu and Muslim faith, were to change rapidly the fabric of the society. They were later joined by a small number of Chinese traders. Cultivation of sugar cane was given a boost and the island flourished, especially with the export of sugar to England.
