SUMMARY.
In 1728 the Duke of Montague first applied for a grant of
the Island of Tobago in compensation for the loss of St. Lucia
whence he had been driven out by the French in 1722.

During the years 1725-1726 the Duke and the Due
d'Estrees failed to negotiate any agreement to divide the lands
at St. Lucia and in 1730 the evacuation of both St. Lucia and
St. Vincent was agreed upon by the French and English.

By the Treaty of Aix la Chapelle, these two Islands were
made neutral.

During the years 1750, 1751 and 1754 fruitless negotiations
took place between the two Crowns by special commissioners.

In 1763 by the Treat} of Peace, Great Britain took
Dominica, St. Vincent and Tobago while France took
St. Lucia.

The Duke of Montague now applies for a Grant of Tobago.
