Sir Walter Ralegh's Conquest of the City of St Joseph in the Isle of Trinidade. Etching, possibly after Théodore De Bry and probably published in the "Universal Magazine of Knowledge and Pleasure" by John Hinton, London in 1750. In 1595 Ralegh's expedition arrived in Trinidad. They attacked the town of San José de Oruña, now St. Joseph, just east of Port-of-Spain, with 100 armed men under the command of Captain Caulfield. Buildings were set alight and the town was taken with little resistance, the island governor Don Antonio de Berrío was taken prisoner. Ralegh's gold-seeking expedition was not a success and he returned empty-handed to England.
