CAPE Coast Castle was settled by the Portuguese in 1610, but soon fell to the Dutch. It was demolished by Admiral Holmes in 1661, but all the British Settlements, factories and shipping along the coast were destroyed by the Dutch Admiral De Ruyter in 1665. In 1667 this Cape was confirmed to the English by the Treaty of Breda. Anamabu is a town and fort in the Gold Coast Colony, and had a population of 5,000 in 1899. P.R.O. T.l/343,p. 134.
