Keppel bombarded the fortress and then landed his marines to take possession. The French Blaise Estoupan de Saint-Jean surrendered the fortress and the island. The garrison (about 300 men) and many Africans became prisoners of war and 110 guns and mortars were captured.
The island was occupied by the British until 1763 when it was returned following the Treaty of Paris.
