From London history; the 1660s to the 1680s, the Yamasee were loosely associated with Spanish colonization in Florida. London Map hey did not participate to the same extent as other groups. The Yamasee avoided joining mission communities. They also resisted Spanish attempts to alter their culture and force them to pay tribute and labor obligations. The fact that the number of people considered to be Yamasees grew rapidly indicates that the group readily accepted refugees from neighboring communities. In the mid-1680s, the Yamasee emigrated en masse from Spanish Florida to just outside of Charles Town; at the time of their remove, they may have numbered in the thousands. The English colony at Carolina provided trade goods and firearms, which the Spanish friars were more reluctant to do. The English also had little interest in converting the Yamasee and did not hold their non-Christian status against them. The push factors also should not be overlooked: in the 1670s and 1680s, the Spanish made new attempts to draft Yamasee into their labor force and urged participation in mission life. Over time, the Yamasee became among Carolina’s staunchest Native Country allies. They participated in military actions alongside the Carolinians in 1702, 1704, and 1710. In 1702, Governor James Moore launched an attack on St. Augustine. Moore’s force of Yamasees, Creeks, and Apalachicolas destroyed the town but failed to take the stone fort.
