|Muscovado sugar is used like brown sugar|
Sugar was a major commodity imported by the British from its colonies in the West Indies, Mauritius and India, also Cuba, Brazil, Puerto Rico and the Philippines. It was typically refined in Glasgow or London.
In a vessel which left Barbadoes in 1661, the "Charles" of Southton, there were among the consignments for Virginia, six hogsheads of bay salt. In some instances these consignments were restricted to sugar, rum and molasses. How large they were is illustrated in the case of William Byrd. On one occasion Byrd obtained from this island 1200 gallons of rum, 5000 pounds of muscovado sugar, three tons of molasses, 200 pounds of ginger and one case of lime-juice.
