St. Helena was used as a staging post on the way to Asia by the Portuguese, English and Dutch. The island had plenty of fresh water, bird life, domestic livestock run wild, and fish. In 1633 the Dutch Republic took possession of the island. During the second half of the 17th century, sovereignty over St. Helena alternated between the VOC and the British.
