This chapter focuses on the political and personal life of the murdered Virginia-born, British-sponsored Leeward Islands Governor Daniel Parke to show how difficult it could be to juggle the contradictory demands of different Atlantic Worlds in the eighteenth century. In the process, it also demonstrates how closely the history of the Colonial South was linked to the history of the Caribbean and European Empires.

Keywords:   American South, Colonial America, Atlantic World, Virginia, Leeward Islands, Caribbean, British Empire, Daniel Parke
