Первые поселения людей на островах Антигуа и Барбуда появились в 3 тысячелетии до н. э. В начале нашей эры здесь появились племена араваков, занимавшихся сельским хозяйством.

С 1632 года — владение Великобритании. В 1674 году на Антигуа была заложена первая плантация сахарного тростника. Англичане также основали на Антигуа и другие плантационные хозяйства (хлопчатник, табак, кокосы), для этого стали завозить негров-рабов из Африки. Рабство было отменено в 1834 году. В 1666—1667 гг. Антигуа была оккупирована Францией.
