The islands comprise three islands, Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, all low lying and coral and limestone based. Columbus discovered them in 1503 and named them Las Tortugas, because the only inhabitants were turtles. By 1530 they were known as the Caymanas, meaning "crocodile" in Carib. Although Sir Francis Drake visited the islands in 1568, they did not come under British rule until 1670. The islands remained a dependency of Jamaica until 1959, when they became a self-governing member of the Federation of the West Indies. In 1962 they became a British dependency again.The Caymanians are descendants of the English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh seamen who settled the islands and later intermarried with Jamaican immigrants.
