The name Antigua is an island in the Caribbean, one of the Leeward Islands; a British colony, with its dependency Barbuda, until 1967, when it became a British associated state.

Ruffian is late 15th century word from Old French and of Germanic origin. Meaning a person who might be involved in crime or a tough, lawless individual. Quite comical given the serene setting of the beautiful neighborhood in which this home is located.
