Tucker's Town

Tucker's Town is a small, exclusive community in St. George's Parish, Bermuda at the mouth of Castle Harbour, on Tucker's Town Peninsula on Bermuda's main island.HistoryForgotten communityTucker's Town was founded by the recently arrived Governor of Bermuda Daniel Tucker in 1616, but the land was found "verie meene", while the harbour itself was unprotected from the weather and isolated from the rest of the island. Tucker ignored these issues and began to lay out a street grid plan — featuring a 12ft road—and had a small chapel built, but was unable to attract any migrants from the main settlement at St, George's. The following year, only two or three cottages had been built in the area, and those were inhabited by soldiers manning Castle Island. Once the failure of the Town was acknowledged, the land was allotted to officers stationed at Castle Island, and off-duty soldiers tended to spend their time there instead of at the Island's sentry post. The only civilian presence was the family of the fort commander.By 1750, a small civilian community—35 families living on 350acre of public land—had finally been established, as had a whaling station to support hunting off Bermuda's south shore. In 1758, Governor William Popple regranted the land to a group of wealthy landowners, but this had little effect on the tenants.
