The author describes his Burt and Berridge ancestors and how they helped run St Kitts and Nevis in the Caribbean and parts of the British Empire for over 300 years. Extensive quotations from contemporary official correspondence give a flavour of the times and illustrate the difficulties experienced by the British government ruling the Empire in the days before air transport, radio and telephones.
