But in spite of this encouragement, the tenure of Friends in individual colonies was not long.
By the end of the 18th century, most organized Quakerism in the Caribbean had disappeared. Why this happened is of particular interest. The usual conflicts with authority on the issues of tidies, church attendance, oath-taking, and the bearing of arms were successfully combatted well into the 18th century, and were not the principal reasons for the Society's decline. It was rather the incompatibility between their principles and the economic and political factors of the local scene which brought about their disappearance.
