In the year 1766, the British government gave Samuel Touchett a land grant for twenty thousand acres in the Miami region. Touchett attempted to establish a plantation, but a lack of finances led to his early failure. In the early eighteen hundreds, the first permanent settlers came to the area. A successor of the New Smyrna colony, one Pedro Fornells, came to Key Biscayne to comply with the stipulations of his Royal Grant for the island.
