Abstract

During most of the 18th century, Trujillo, Honduras, served as an entrepôt for contraband trade between Central Americans in the Audiencia de Guatemala and the British who had settled at Black River on the Mosquito shore and in Jamaica. The Central Americans traded mainly indigo and cattle for British textiles. Until 1782, when Trujillo was reoccupied by the Spanish forces, the authorities were nearly powerless to stop the contraband trade. Afterward, smuggling continued, but on a much smaller scale. - (SLD)
