The first permanent settlements were from France in 1643, then England 1664, and France took over again in 1666. During the 1700s ownership changes or neutrality occurred 12 times but St. Lucia basically remained loyal to France. Great Britain gained control in 1803, and St. Lucia became independent in 1979.[1]
