Become part of history and heritage
The original owners of Giles Quarter (1700’s) were the Mardenborough’s.
Giles Mardenborough was married to Esther Peterson and both were still alive on Saba in the year 1882.
The most well-known Mardenborough was Sarah Catherine. She died on December 19th, 1903 at her home in the Windward Side at the age of 79. Her parents were Christopher Mardenborough and Mary Hassell. Sarah is considered the founder of the church on Saba.
One of the current owners of Giles Quarter filled us in with many moving stories and facts of the property:
“This beautiful oasis was once a farm and thriving Cattle Plantation and ultimately owned by three parties. The men encompassed the strength and ambition of its people. Hard work was a lifestyle, but also
a necessity as this plantation once provided sustenance for the people of the island
with livestock and farming plots.
In 1883 sea Captain Henry Johnson Hassell wrote a letter to the acting Governor of Curacao requesting that he erect buildings at the Fort Bay beach to carry out his business of supplies
and livestock import and export. Permission was granted.
Today the walking paths, steps and treacherous cliffs of Giles Quarter – Cattle Plantation – are replaced by roads and the access to the water is a far reach from what it once was. The watering troughs and old stone cattle pens are still there, reminiscent of a time gone by, but the enchanting beauty and breathtaking views remain and continue to be a timeless treasure to this day.”
Another owner shared this with us:
“40+ years ago I was a young boy growing up on Saba and spent a lot of time with my grandfathers
who were an immense influence on me.
Back in those days most families worked any jobs they could and lived on a subsistences lifestyle of farming and harvesting crops and animals to eat. They were farmers, hunters, fishermen, construction workers, sailors doing everything they could to support their families.
We had weekend adventures and if the sea was nice we would wake up early and walk from Windwardside
down to Giles Quarter and spend the morning fishing the coastline.
The land has been in our families for generations and is very special to me. I owe it to my family, have a deep sense of obligation, to ensure that we use it to our benefit and for the benefit of Saba
with the land they looked after for so many years, decades, and centuries.”
