Abstract In this paper we present an analysis linking the economic structure of Cuba during the so-called sugar boom years of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century with the evolution of land tenure and the social groups that were drawn together during this process. It is necessary to understand farm management, and its projection and impact on the Cuban economy and society during the consolidation of the plantation to better understand this process in a historical perspective. The consolidation of the plantation system is equal to the concentration of land ownership.
