A Barbados guide

Daily Mail Online   The island of Barbados has been beloved of the British since Captain Henry Powell first occupied it in 1625.



The intrepid adventurer claimed the island on behalf of King James I. It remained British for almost 350 years. Although independent since 1966, it is still a member of the Commonwealth.



The origin of the name Barbados reputedly comes from the Portuguese explorer, Pedro A Campos, who used the phrase 'Los Barbados' meaning 'bearded ones'.
