Colonised by English settlers from Saint
Kitts in 1650, Anguilla was administered by Great Britain until the early 19th
century, when the island - against the wishes of the inhabitants - was incorporated into a
single British dependency, along with Saint Kitts and Nevis.
Several attempts at separation failed. In 1971, two years after a
revolt, Anguilla was finally allowed to secede; this arrangement was formally recognized
in 1980 with Anguilla becoming a separate British dependency.
