The Island of Martinique.

The Island of Martinique. Visscher, Nicolaes. The Island of Martinique. "Insula Matanino Vulgo Martinico in lucem edita per Nicolaum Visscher" Amsterdam Visscher, Nicolaes , 1657
Copper engraved map ofthe island of Martinique by Nicolaes Visscher. Black & white; verso blank.
The large mapshows the island of Martinique, during the conquest of the island by the French. North on the compass rose errs by 45° East. In 1635 the Compagnie des Îles de l'Amérique sent nearly a hundred settlers from St Kitts to Martinique, where they built Fort St Pierre. On the map the island is divided in two with Demeure de Francois to the north and west, and Demeure de Sauvages (the indigenous Caribs) over the rest of the island. The map does not mention Fort St Louis, a second fort built by the French in 1638. The Caribs were exterminated or exiled by 1660.
On 15 September 1635, Pierre Belain d'Esnambuc, French governor of the island of St. Kitts, landed in the harbour of St. Pierre with 150 French settlers after being driven off St. Kitts by the English. D'Esnambuc claimed Martinique for the French King Louis XIII and the French Compagnie des Îles de l'Amérique, establishing the first European settlement at Fort Saint-Pierre (now St. Pierre).
In 1636, the indigenous Caribs rose against the settlers to drive them off the island in the first of many skirmishes. The French successfully repelled the natives and forced them to retreat to the eastern part of the island, on the Caravelle Peninsula in the region then known as the Capesterre. When the Carib revolted against French rule in 1658, the Governor Charles Houel de Petit-Pré retaliated with war against them. Many were killed; those who survived were taken captive and expelled from the island. Some Carib had fled to Dominica or St. Vincent, where the French agreed to leave them at peace.
