This talk explores some of the commodities that were at the centre of British expansionism into the Atlantic World in the first flush of empire-building under the Stuart monarchs. It considers how and why American and Caribbean colonies evolved distinctive approaches to labour and landholding, and what some of the new products and fashions were that stimulated colonial growth.
