The History of St Augustine, like the history of every place, is an intricate drama of personalities and events set against a backdrop of the physical and cultural environment. This paper attempts to outline the pattern of one facet of the cultural background: population. It is believed that this may be justified by the fact that population changes correlate with events and shed light on those events. Further, population changes serve as an index to changes in economy.
