When the British civil wars started, the English colonies in
America were divided in their allegiances. The New England colonies
all supported the Parliamentary cause, but the southern colonies of
Virginia, Bermuda, Barbados and Antigua proved Royalist. In October

with these Royalist colonies. A naval force was also sent across
the Atlantic, led by General-at-Sea Ayscue, to try to reclaim
control of Barbados.
