French [[buccaneer]]s established a settlement on the island of [[Tortuga (Haiti)|Tortuga]] in 1625, and were soon joined by like minded English and Dutch [[privateers]] and [[pirates]], who formed a lawless international community that survived by preying on Spanish ships and hunting wild cattle. Although the Spanish destroyed the buccaneers' settlements in 1629, 1635, 1638 and 1654, on each occasion they returned. In 1655 the newly established English administration on Jamaica sponsored the re-occupation of Tortuga under Elias Watts as Governor. In 1660 the English made the mistake of replacing Watts as Governor by a Frenchman Jeremie Deschamps,<ref>[http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=fr&u=http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/J%25C3%25A9r%25C3%25A9mie_Deschamps_du_Rausset&ei=B8DET_jzDY-a8gTh--SOCw&sa=X&oi=translate&ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CFgQ7gEwAA&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dwikipedia%2BJeremie%2BDeschamps%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26hs%3D0eM%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26prmd%3Dimvnso]</ref> on condition he defended English interests.
