When the British were retreating after being beaten they annexed Jamaica.
So Jamaica was not formed by slavery at all......It was already a colony b4 the facts you are quoting and infact had GBR never captured it the island would have been the western hemishere's first free African nation. As it was even teh invading British signed a treaty with the Maroons/ and Caribs promising they would not be slaves as long as they allowed the Sugar bussiness to continue without incident.
Then inorder to compete with Spain and to not have to do bussiness with them the British started their own Sugar production in Jamaican and imported first African slaves and then Indian and Chinese indentured servants.
I am Jamaican I know a lot more about my Islands history than a ****in blurb in wikipedia.....
