History

The Administration of St. Kitts started soon after settlement in 1623. The island was then divided onto English and French quarters. The island was administered by a Governor or his lieutenant who nominated a Council. The Assembly was an elected body. It was abolished in 1878 when Crown Colony Rule was introduced. Anguilla was annexed to St. Kitts for purposes of Administration in 1825. In 1871 the Federation of the Leeward Islands was created with its headquarters in Antigua. It had its own Council and Assembly. Nevis was administered from St. Kitts from 1882.
