Rodrigues inherited its name from the Portuguese navigator, Don Diego Rodriguez, who visited the island briefly in 1528. However, the discovery of Rodrigues is in fact much earlier than the 16th century. Between the 10th and the 11th centuries, the Arabs regularly visited the Mascarenes Islands. As a major proof, a map realized during the 12th century by the Arabic geographer, Al Sharif El-Edrissi, which clearly shows the three islands of the Mascarenes known back then as Dina Arobi (Mauritius), Dina Margabin (Reunion) and Dina Moraze (Rodrigues).
As from 1601, the Dutch anchored in the island’s lagoon to take in fresh supplies of food without really settling down.
It is only in 1691 that François Leguat and his 7 Huguenot companions disembarked on the island in a view to set up a colony of protestant refugees. But, overwhelmed by the loneliness, they left the island after two years and decided to move to Mauritius Island using rafts.
Years went by, the island still remained unoccupied and was solely used as a supply anchor for those ships that were on their way to the Indies. The island was abundant in a particular specie of tortoises, which had already disappeared from the other Mascarenes Islands.
Following the orders of Mahé de Labourdonnais, governor of Ile de France (Mauritius) and Bourbon Island (Reunion), the island was to be permanently occupied in 1735. A detachment settled down, assigned with the task of gathering the tortoises and loading them on the ships of the Indies Company so as to supply these two islands as well as passing ships in fresh meat. This pillage went on for 60 years and brought about their extinction at the end of the 18th century.
