The English colony has shaped all aspects of daily lives, from the sides of the road we drive on and the language we speak, to our government


An English colony from the mid-seventeenth to the mid-twentieth century, the influence of the English can be seen everywhere in Jamaica. It has shaped all aspects of daily lives, from the sides of the road we drive on and the language we speak, to our government and judicial systems; the structure of our civil service, military, police and education systems; and of course, our love of cricket.
