T^HE completion of this Second Volume affords me the opportunity of 

.' aofain thankinor contributors for their continued interest in the Work. 

r I wish especially to acknowledge my indebtedness to the Eev. Dr. Thomas 

for his transcription of the Parish Register of St. John's, Nevis ; to 

Mr. r. CuNDALL, Mrs. Leopold Scarlett, aiid Miss M. Nembhard for 

their articles on Jamaica; to Major Phipps and Lieut.-Colonel Poor for 

papers relating to St. Kitts ; to Mr. N. Dakxell Davis and Mr. E. G. 

SixcKLEE for papers relating to Barbados ; and to Mr. A. Aspinall for

Sir Simon Haughton Clarke, Bart. (Cussans' " Herts," iii., 68.) 

The will of Haughton James, Esq., of Jamaica was proved in 1744 (21(5,

is in the Chippendale style it probably belonged to the last-named. Some twenty 
years ago I met a Mr. Haughton James in the B.M.S. "Moselle" going to 
Jamaica, so I hope the family may still be nourishing in its native island. [Editor.]

CI)t ^tttlnncnt of iJtbts/ 

The two following Chancery Suits from the P.R.O. (the references to which 
were sent me on 25 October lSi)0 by the late Mrs. Y. T. C. Smith) g^ive very 
valuable authentic information about the earlv planters of this island. There is 
no other such early list in existence. The skins are in good order, and the names, 
with two or three exceptions, quite legible : — 



12 Nov. 1629. Humblie complaining your orator Thomas Litleton of Loudon 
merchant that whereas about Sept. 1&27 he and one Roger Glover citizen and 
vintner of London agreed to send into Turkej' an adventure of goods costing 
1600' your orator having one third and Glover two thirds and later it was agreed 
that Glover was to bear the whole adventure and pay your orator 8 per cent, on all 
sums advanced and Glover now owes 900' and 310' for tobacco and about the 
month of January 1627 your orator did fit forth a ship called the Jfaitfi to take 
her voyage to the Island of S' Christofersf and thence to Newfoundland and the 
Straights of which Glover was to have a quarter share but by reason of tempesttuius 
and contrarie winds and a great niortalitic amongst the men of the ship wherein 
the cheife comauders ^\ere lost and all the victualls spent the voyage to New- 
foundlandj and the Straights was lost to the damage of your orator in 600' and 
upwards. Glover refuses to pay his share of the charges contrary to his promise 
and about May 1628 your orator set forth three sayle of shipps and consigned 
them upon an adventure to "one of the Caribee Islands" and Glover desired to 
have a share but having no ready money signed a bill for 250' and they were 
bound to several persons for the freight and Glover and Francis Goare for their 
friends desired your orator to acknowledge a recogni.-'.ance in the high court of 
chancery of 1500' unto Glover which vour orator did on the 6 May last and 
Glover has paid 1000' in pait payment and the adventure to Turkey is not paid 
and Glover hath pnisecuted your orator in tlie Pettybag Office intending to lay 
the whole penalty of the recognizance on your orator contrary to equity your 
orator desires to be relieved of all engagements with Glover and pra\s for a 
subpena for Glover to appear in this court and answer this bill and put in all 
accounts and stay proceedings in the office of Petty bagg. [One skin.] 

The AifswEii of Defe>'I)a>"t. 

It was agreed that complainant was to become free of the Turkey Company 
before the goods arrived at Lcaghorne. Defendant shipped for Aleppo goods of 
1700' value mostly bought at his own credit and Complainant refused to take up 
his freedom thinking to lay the loss of the adventure on this defendant if the 
same had miscarried — denies claims and contests the figures. It is true that in 
January 1627 plaintif set out the ship the Fai/h for S' Christophers and then to 
Newfoundland and the Straights and agreed for a quarter share but the ship 
spent so much time in England before she departed for S' Christophers and staid 
so long at S' Christojdiers to discharge her lading that she lost her voyage for 
Newfoundland and could not arrive there time enough to lade with fish but 
returned to England and the agreement was given up by the complainant to this 
defendant to be cancelled. It is true that in May 161S [sic] three ships were, 
consigned to one of the Caribbee Islands and defendant adventured 250' and they

Including tlie Governor there are eighty names of planters in the atove suit, 
and as probably every man in the island got something out of the ships the number 
of settlers did not much exceed eitrhty. The ship Hopeirdl is probably the same 
vessel which -was fitted out by Ealph Ivlcrifield of London, merchant, commanded 
by Captain John Jeaffreson, and arrived on 18 iMarch IG'24 at hit. Christophers. 
Captain Tho. "Warner returned in her to England, and obtained on 13 September 
1G25 a royal commission reciting his discovery of St. Christophers, Mevis, etc., 
and appcinting him Governor. On 3 May 1()'20 Enlph Mcrritield petitioned the 
Privy Council that he had set forth two ships ('not named) under Captain "Warner 
and Captain Smith to the "new plantation in the Caribbee Islands." On 2 July 
1G27 James ]*]ai'l of Carlisle obtained a crant of all the Caribbees. On 20 October 
1G27 the Hopewell, under Captain "W'illiam Smith, with stores from the Earl of 
Carlile, arrived at St. Christophers. Captain John Smith,* writing in 1G29, said: 
" In this little He of Mevis, more than twenty yearcs agoe, I have remained a good 
time together, to wod, and water and refresh, my men." This jjroves that the 
island was used by navigators before 1G09, though no permanent settlement was 
effected. He then says: "The last yeare, lG2s, Master Littleton, with some 
others got a Pattent of the Earle of Carlile, to plant the He called the Barbados, 
thirty leagues Northward of Saint Christophers; which .... they called Dulcina, 
but when they came there, they found it such a barren rocke, they left it ... . 
At last .... they came to jMevis, a little He by Saint Christophers : where they 
seated themselves, well furnished with all necessaries, being about the number of 
an hundred, and since increased to an hundred and fifty persons whereof many 
were old planters of Saiut Christophers, especially Master Anthony Hinton \_sic], 
and Master P]dward Thompson." 

Cant. Smith's narrative is probably accurate. The island Barbados is an error 
for Bavbudos or Barbuda, an uncultivated island north of Antigua. Mevis or 
Nevis is styled Dulcina in certain wills, but I never heard of the name being 
applied to Btirbuda. If Littleton's three ships sailed for Nevis in iVEay 1G2S, and 
on arrival found Governor Hilton and over SO planters there, how did the latter 
go out ? 

In the British Museum [Egerton jMS. 2395] is preserved the narrative of 
John Hilton in 1675, storekeeper and chief gunner of Nevis. He stated that his 
brother Anthony Hilton, born in the Bishojirick of Durham, being sent by the 
merchants of Barnstaple to Virginia, touched at St. Christophers, and waited on 
Capt. Tho. "Warner the Governor. On returning from Virginia he landed ni 
Ireland, where he met Capt. Vallett and other gentlemen who provided him with 
a ship and men, intending to grow tobacco at St. Christophers, as being a better 
place than Virginia. These men were the first that settled on the "Windward side 
of St. Christopher, but being attacked by the Indians, removed to the Leeward 
side. [Hilton's name appears as a witness to the Treaty between the English and 
French, dated 13 May 1627.] Having raised a crop he returned with several 
planters to London, and having sold their tobacco for 20'' per Ib.f they were sent 
by M'' Littleton merchant, who had a commission from the Earl of Carlile, to 
settle Barbados (Barbuda), but not likino; it, nor Antegoa nor ]\Iountserrat, came 
down to Nevis y^ 22 of July 162Si, where they settled. 

John Hilton said that Jacob Lake "came over with us at y*^ first settling." 
This date of 22 July 162S would be about the time of arrival of the three ships 
Littleton despatched according to the Chancery Suit in the previous .^Lay ; but 
the two accounts do not agree, and further evidence is desired. On 8 Nov. 162S 
Hilton was one of those who signed another Erench Treaty. On 7 Sept. 1G29 
both St. Christopher and Nevis were plundered by the Spaniards, who took away 
as hostages for Xevis, Capt. John Coolie of London, Capt. John Hus'oands, a 
Yorkshircman, Kobert Merreton of London, and John Hilton, brother of Capt. 
Anthony Hilton and author of the narrative. 

* "The Travels of Captain .Tolin Sniitli," vol. ii. 

t Capt. John Smith stated that the frci^'lit was 3d. and the cu.«toms 9d. 


Capt. Anthony Hiltou, who had left foi" England in Aug. 1G29, returned with 

I more men and resettled the island. During his absence the people had elected 

I Mr. James Russell as their temporary governor. Mr. Tho. Littleton then went 

[ over with the object o£ recovering debts, to whom Hilton then resigned the 

( government and removed to "Tartodus," where he shortly after died. John 

> Hilton, after 5 years imprisonment in Spain, returned in a Dutch ship to Nevis, 

r where he met Governor Tho. Littleton, Mr. Procter the factor, Mr. Luke Stoakes, 

; and Capt. Sparrowe. Governor L. afterwards followed John Hilton to Tartodus 

j and died on the voyage. The list of Governors as given by John Hilton is as 

i follows, and to this I have added notes : — 

1. Capt. Anthony Hilton, who arrived 22 July 1628. Governor again after 
Russell, and until 1635. 

2. Capt. Wm. Vallett, his Deputy during Hilton's absence in England. He 
fled in Sept. 1629. 

3. James Russell, chosen by the people ^;-o tern. 

4. Thos. Litleton, the Founder of the colony. Succeeded Hilton about 1635, 
d. 1636. 

5. Luke Stoakes, his Deputy. 

6. Capt. Tho. Sparrow, put in by Sir Tho. "Warner about 1636. 

7. Major Henry Hunckes 163S-9. Governor of Barbados 1640.

1200 persons.

15. Col. Haudall Russell 1671-167b, brother of James; d. before 29 June 1678. 

Thos. Littleton's pedigree was recorded in the Visitation of Surrey of 1662-8. 

I He was the son of Sir Edward Littleton of Henley, co. Salop, Kt., by Mary, dau. 

■■ of Sir Edward Lloyd, and is entered as "Thomas Littleton of ye Citty of London, 

Governo'' of Mevis, Ar.," and by his wife Eliz., dau. of John Abeels of London, 

I merchant, left an only son and heir, James. 

; Petition of Capt. "Wm. Digby I July 1652, reciting that ten years since Sir 

i; Tho. Warner assigned to him a plantation in Nevis formerly confirmed to Warner 

I by "Capt. Kettleby then Governor of Nevis," . . . the present Governor, Capt. 

Luke Stoakes, has taken away about 280 acres. The patent, dated 11 Dec. 1048, 
was from the- Earl of Carlisle for "240 geometrical paces* of land." (Colonial 
Cal., p. 385.) 

Certificate dated 10 Feb. (?) 1659 of Capt. Edward Blagge, that he has traded 
for more than 20 years with Nevis, " especially in the time of Capt. Jacob Lake's 
government, and knows him to have been a person of integrity and very prudent 
and laborious in the discharge of his trust.. Col. Luke Stokes, who succeeded 
him, behaved faithfully and was attached to tlie Commonwealth ; and Major 
Russell, present Governor, is very fit for his present employment and beloved 
amongst his neiglibours.'" His brother Mr. Lake, a minister, arrived in the 
Carltie on 7 Sept. 1629 at the s une time as the Spanish Fleet, but that vessel 
escaped by cutting her cables. (Colonial Cal., p. 474.) Capt. Lake commanded 
a company at that time, but his men ran away. A Capt. William Vallett was 
in 1661 a Member of the Council of Jamaica. 

In. conclusion, it appears probable that settlers from St. Christopher passed

Capt. Anthony Hilton was appointed their first (Tovernor by liim or Thomas

popuhition would naturally overflow to the neighbouring: islands. C;ipt. John Smith 
said that in 1G2S there had been 30 sail of English, French, and Dutch ships at 
St. Christophers. Littleton's adventure was a purely commercial undertaking;.

The following genealogy has been copied from a small book 4yg- by 2 ^^ inches, 
containing 796 closely written pages, mostly on devotional subjects, but of which 
the genealogy or " Vita Auctoris " occupies pp. 159 to 17i. The whole Book of 
Psalms, pp. 101, printed in 1651, is also bound in between pp. 76i and 765. 

In the " D.N.B." are a long notice of Dr. Daniel Featley and a short one of 
John his nephew. The former was bora at Charlton-upon-Otmoor, Oxfordshire,

Dear Sir 

Agreeably to what was settled at our last convention I inclose several 
Mem* for enquiries to be made in Jamaica. Your brother will be able to point 
out a proper person for the collections, viz. one that is active intelligent & 
industrious, that "no stone may be left unturned " that may afford us an inscrip- 
tion or any part of the information we nre in pursuit of. Certainly there must be 
in Jamaicaf who can give an Account of the connections, either from memory or 
tradition, of most of the families of Bank in Jamaica, & those of a Lieut' 
Governort most assuredly Avill not remain a blank in such chronological memories. 

If you had obtained anything relative to the Will of the Lieut' Governor you 
w** have communicated the same to 

Dear Sir, Tours faithfully devoted

^3j>m iletters; 

The following West Indian letters were among the papers formerly belonging 
to John Pyni, M.P.. at the seat of his descendant, Philip Plej-dell !Boiiverie at 
Bryniore, co. Somerset. Thev were extracted by H. C. Maxwell Lyte, and. 
printed in the 10th Report, Part \l., of the Historical MSS. Commission. 

1633, October 28. Island of Providence. "William Eudyerd, "NYiUiam Eons 
(sic), Eoger Fioyde and John Brigham, to [John Pym ?]. 

We do not find here the largeness that was reported. At the arrival of the 
Seaflower, the country was furnished with an overplus of provisions for the 
number of persons here. In October following, the new-comers had a crop of 
corn. In that month eighty more came from Bermuda, who had been dissuaded 
by' the seamen from bringing provisions. Although they had felled a great 
quantity of ground by the end of November, and planted it with corn, the dry 
season came on so fast that little of it came to good. 

These Bermudans ( Baremoodiaiis) had little help of the provision of store 
which was spent in the fruitless work of Warwick Port. Thus many have 
endured great hardness. The island is full of hills and not so fertile as was 
reported. At Xew Westminster, and where Captn. Axe lives, the ground has thi.s 
year twice failed in corn. Tliis allotment of two acres a head will no more than 
find food. 

Even if tobacco were as vendible as ever, the quantities from here would never 
cloy the market. 

The tobacco that can be made between January and August may be as good as 
that of any country out of the Indies, if we observe the Spaniard's course of 
keeping it a year before sending it home. The woruis eat our rafters, and the 
dust falling on our tobacco hinders the burning, and makes the taste bitter. 
Most men will have plantains and papawes in their season. Pines, orange trees, 
and lime trees grow, but do not bear. Potatoes are the most thriving and certain 
food we have. Fortification goes on slowly, and we are environed with enemies. 
From Fort Henry on the South West to Fort Warwick on the North East, a 
distance of seven miles, the land is inhabited. The 29 pieces of ordnance here, if 
fitly placed, would free the West side. The North side is not inhabited, and it is 
partly defended by breakers. Twenty pieces of ordnance are requisite for its 
defence. In the harbour there is good riding for twenty ships. Whatever 
others may relate, this is the truth, [p. 85.] 

16-46, May 9. [Somers Island, Bermuda.] William Sener to Alexander Pym 
at Derby House in Westminster. Concerning his estates in Padgett Tribe and 
Pembroke Tribe, and the estates of Lord Say and Sir Benjamin Eudyerd. 

The Government is changed. Within twenty days after his arrival, the 
Governor called an assembly, pretending thereby to reform certain things amiss. 
All the ministers in the island, Mr. White, Mr. Goldinge, and Mr. Co])eland, 
were Independents, and they had set up a Congregational Church, of which most 
gentlemen of Council were members or favourers. The burgesses of this assembly 
were picked out of those who were known to be enemies to that way, and they 
did not suffer a Roundhead (as they term them) to be chosen. Particulars of 
tobacco send to England in chests of cedar, [p. 95.] 

1662, August 15. Surinam. John Treffry to Charles Pym. 

We have been long in expectation of my Lord (Willou;rhby) who by his last 
told me that he would soon be ready to sail, having fully agreed with his Majesty 
concerning Barbados and this place. I hope that we shall see tliis colony wonder- 
fully prosper by reason of the decline of Barbados, wheuce we daily expect sixty 
passengers and planters by the Guiann.

Pemlerfon. — John Butler Peniberton (the first) was Clerk of Assembly in 1730. 

WiUioms.—}iy a deed of 10th December 1755, John Williams, late of Nevis, 
then of Great "Windsor, Berks, for his daugliters Frances and Sarah Williams 
conveyed to Henry Herbert and Thomas ^lills all his plantations in S' Kitts aud 
Nevis on trust. John Williams' wife NTas Sarah .... A John Williams, jiinr., 
was of Wimpole Street. In 17G0 was a deed between John Williams, seur., of 
Lower Brook Street and Sarah his wife of 1st pait, and John Williams, junr., of 
Wilton, CO. Middlesex. 

Butler. — In Nevis, 1718, Duke Butler was described as of Swindeu, co. Wilts, 
and as one of three sons of Thomas Butler, late of Nevis. 

Peterson. — In a deed of 15th July 1754, John Peterson and Bates Williams 
Peterson are described as two of the sons of William Peterson, and Elizabeth 
Peterson is his widow. This AVilliam Peterson and a brother John were sons of 
Anthony (Book of Eecords, 1737, fo. 39S). Joim was Deputy Provost Marshal. 
William Peterson had three other sons, James, Charles, and Pobert, and three 
daughters, Elizabeth, Ann, and Eleanor. He owned the "Spring" plantation 
in Nevis. 

Isabella Garnett, coloured, aged 78, daiighter of Fanny Browne, both belonging 
to Parson liobert Pemberton, stated (in a personal interview with me), that Parson 
Robert Pemberton gave up North Wales estate at Nevis, and went to live at 
S' Kitts. His wife's sister was wife of Mr. Jones. The two sisters owned an 
estate called " Williams," adjoining Cane Garden. They had three sons, John 
Butler, Pobert Hughes, and tSholto, and two daughters, Eliza and Nancy. Eliza 
married Ed. Davis, brother of D. Gateward Davis, late Bishop of Antigua. They 
separated : she went to her father's house and died there. Sholto died at his 
father's house, as also his sister Nancy. Mrs. Pemberton died before her husband 
and children. John Butler married an English lady from Tortola and had five

* Copied on the spot diiriuy a visit to Xevis in 1902. 

Note. — Of the above, No. 1 was the son of Wiu. and Maru'aret P. [see Vol. I., p. 307]. In the 
Ahuanac of Nevis for 1S2G iiis name is entered as a barrister. No. 2 has not been idontiiied, 
but she may be tlie " ranuy." dauL;hter of the llev. Joseph Herbert P., who was baptized in 
183i and died sin-lc [see \'ol. I., p. 30S]. Nos. 3, i. and 5 were sons of Walter Maynard P. of 
Spring Hill, Nevis, wlio was drowned at the wreck of the Clarendon otf th-,^ I>le ol Wiu'ht on 
11 October 183t). No. has i!ie f.ulowini,' obituary in the " G..M.," p. 382 : " 1S2S Pcb. 1. 
At Kouud Hill, Nevis, W.I. in his C7th year, Thos. John Cottle, esq. This j,'entleuian was for 
upwards of 30 years a member of his Majesty's council; and for the greater part of that lonij 
period President of this Island." No. 7, -Miss Julia lluggins was rcsidinjj on her estate 
" Mountravers " iu April of last jrear. 



During a portion of the period durin<^ which the families whose pedigrees 
are givea in some detail above were settled in Xevis and St. Christopher, there 
were also members of another family of the name in the hist-meutioned island. 
These were descended from Thomas Pembertou of Goiigh House, Chelsea, who 
■was employed in the Transfer Departmeut of the India Office for some years 
before his death in ISOl (" G.M.," 11-53). Xo eonneetioii has as yet been traced 
between tiiis family ami the other Pembertons in the AVest Indies, but the 
publication of what is known may, it is hoped, lead to further light being thrown 
on the subject. 

The first of them to emigrate appears to have been Thomas, eldest son of the 
above-mentioned Thomas of Gough House by his wife Maria, daughter of 
John Henry 8igerist, and went there as a planter. He was born on 9 iSovcmber 
1770 and baptized at S. Mary Abbott's, Kensington, on 10 Dece nber following. 
The date of his emigration has not been ascertained, but on 12 July 179S he 
married at St. John's, Capisterre, St. Kitts, Frances Ashington Seatou, daughter 
of Captain AVilliam Seaton of tliat island. 

A younger brother of tliis Thomas, John Busick Manning Pemberton, died at 
St. Kitts at the age of 22, and all others of the family tliere were direct 
descendants of this second Thomas. 

He had a family of ten children, the baptisms of all of whom and also some 
of their marriages and burials will be found in the extracts frmn St. Christopher 
registers immediately preceding this note. Their n.ames, in order of senioi'ity, 
were Tiiomas Seaton, Frances Maria, W^illiam Augustus Sadler, Charlotte 
Hardtmau, JJusick ilichards, Julia, Henry Seaton, Edward. Charles Davis, and 
Harriet Amelia Mary. 

Thomas Seaton married in 1S33, at St. James', Xevis, Adriana, daughter of 
Colonel James Daniell, President of that island, and he appears to have left 
St. Kitts soon after that, as his children were alt born in London. His eldest 
son Mordaunt belonged to the Xevis bar in ISGi and became a Q.C. in 1879. 
He died unmarried in England in 18^)7. 

iSo other member of the ne.vt generation appears to have settled in the AVest 
Indies — the only one of the si.\: brothers wiiu lial a family being the youngest, 
Charles Davis, and he left St. Kitts at a comparatively early age, having been 
married at Broadstairs in ISlG ("G.M.," l8lj, p. 420), and all his large 
family were born in England. He practised as a solicitor in London from 
the year ISiG to the year 1858, being senior partner in the well-known tirm of 
Lee & Pemberton's of H Lincoln's Inn Fields. 

His three eldest sons, Cnarles Seaton, Busick Edmonds, and Cyril Warner 
Lee became solicitors, autl the second of the three is now senior partner of the 
same Urm of Lee & Pemberton's. Tlie fourth son, Seymour Blanshard, was in a 
AVest India Regiment and died at Barbados in ISSl. One son, Ernest St. Clair, 
served in the Royal Eni,'iniers, and retired as a Colonel in 1908. Two sons, 
Seatou Blanshard and Willougliby Arthur (the youngest), are on the London 
Stock E.xchange ; and another, Horace Claude, has settled in the Argentine 
Republic. Three married daughters are also living. 

Charles Davis Pembjrlon. the f.ither of all t les?, who was born at St. Kitts a 
fow months before the Battle of Waterloo, died at Brighton on G September 1899.

• A considerable number of the early settlers in Jamaica did not emi<j;rate there 

direct from Great Britain, but were drawn from the older colonies. Tliis point is 

[ of much interest, and should be taken into consideration by readers when 

E inquiring into the origin of the first inhabitants. 

[ Capt. Gregory Butler, who was recruiting for the Expedition, in his letter to 

I the Protector in IGoo [Thurloe's State Papers, iii., 574], wrote that Antegoe was 

i molested by Indians and. had but 1200 meii, so lie would not enlist any. At 

I Montserrat he raised SO, at Nevis 300, and at St. Kitts 800 or 900, in spite of 

! the Frencli owning one half the colony. "This island is almost worne out by 

I reason of the multitude that live upon "it. . . .The fleet appearing we shi])ped our 

I men to the number of twelve hundred and dejjarted." Penn and Venablcs 

I anchored olf St. Kitts on April IGoo, and including the above 1200, thoy had on 

I bo>U'd oOOO West Indian settlers, besides women and children, the majority from 


Barbados. The survivors took possession of Jamaica next month. Yice-Admiral 
Wm. Goodson wrote on 24 June IG.'G: "Upon notice given from Governor 
Stokes of liiiiiself and the people of Nevis tlieir intention to transplant tliemselves 
hither, dispatched three ships for their transport, and 4"'' Jnne a vessel arrived 
from the Governor Avith three gentlemen to treat ■with ns concerning shipping 
and to view the country. Afterwards fitted out a small vessel to carry back our 
resolutions of sending shi])s for about 1000 jieople besides women, children and 
servants" ("America and AV.l. Calendar for lC75-(), Addenda 1574-1G74, p. 110]. 
Ca])t. Godfrey writes on 30 June 1G5G : "Is going with some ships to. Nevis and 
S' Christopher's to fetch the Governor, his lady, and such planters as will come 
to Jamaica." [IhiJ., p. 112.] 

Yice-Admiral Goodson writes again in Oct. IGoG: "that tliey arrived at 
Nevis road on 0"' Oct. and have been embarking about 1400 men, women 
and children, with their coods and servants and intend sailing 2f inst." 
[JizW., p. 114.] 

Cornelius Burough writes on 28 Nov. 1G5S: "In Gen. Brayne's time about 
1,000/. in provisions was lent to Nevis planters settled on Port Morant, they 
being in great want." \_lhid., p. 125.] 

The reason of this emigration was also, I believe, because Nevis, like St. Kitts, 
was over populated. It was a very small island of some 50 square miles, with a 
great central mountain, and not much available land for new comers. 

After the capture of St. Kitts by the French in IGGG, Du Tertre says some of 
the English inhabitants were sent to Jamaica, etc. 

In 1G70 the Somer Islands were so crowded that many of its peojde removed 
to Jamaica. In 1G75 most of the English with their slaves also went there from 
Surinam — total in three ships, 1231. Their names are given. [America and 
W.I., 286.] 



Bishop's Court, 


11 October 1910. 

The Registration of Baptisms, Marriages, etc., is very incomplete, owing to 
the destruction of nearly all the Registers in the year 1831,* but in some 
parishes, entries have been made of Baptisms, etc., in the Parish Yestry Books. 
There is, however, no complete list. 

Below is a list of the Parishes in my Diocese : — 

S. Micliael. S. Philip. S. James. S. Lucy. 

Christ Church. S. John. S. Peter. S. Andrew. 

S. George. S. Thomas. S. Joseph. 

W. P. Bahbados. ' 


Allusion was made in Yol. I., p. 2S7, to the list of such sites printed on 
23 December 1909 in the " Jamaica Gazette." The Committee for Barbados has 
now completed its task, and ou 17 June 1910 sent in its Report, of which 

• Ou the 10-11 Au!,'. of that year a most destructive hurriciuio occurreil. Owinc to the 
liability of the "West Indies to earthquakes, hurncanes, and fires, it seems dcsiniblo thai an Act 
should he pas-ed, providitii: for ihe transcription of the parish rcu'isters, and for the deposit with 
the r.islio]' caidi year of certififd copies ol all entries. Such an Act was at oue time in force evea 
iu England, and in these islands it is still more necessary. [Ed.] 


a printed copy has been forwarded to me by !Mr. E. G. Sinclder, the Hon. 
Secretary. Tliiy list coinprises all the old forts mid batteries ; tombs on plantations ; 
and ancient " Great liouses," of which Fontabelle, Diax Hall, and iSicholas Abbey 
were apj)arently all erected in the Cromwellian period. The M.I. noted relate 
more especially to the following families, viz.: — 

Ayshford, Collins, Cul])fper, Forte, Greaves, Holder, Holloway, Hooke, Lear, 
Lillington, Morris, l\ie-e, Ivider, liouse, Scott, Simmons, Skeete, Thori)e, Tyler, 
Walton, AVilkinson, AVilliams, and Worrell. As tlie vaults on the plantations 
are more liable to destruction than tliose in the cliurchyards, it is hoped that the 
Inscriptions at all these outlying places may be copied verbatim and the coats of 
arms noted and forwarded to me for publication. 

The late ]Major Herbert Thome of Barbados copied all tlie M.l. of St. ^lichael's, 
and perhaps of other parishes, and his collection should certainly be printed. 

Major Lawrence Archer's well-known work relates <.-hietly to Jamaica, and he 
stated that his stay at Barbados was so short that he only noted Inscriptions 
down to 1700. 



In the AVest India Committee Circular for 6 December 1910, tinder "Historic 
Sites and Monuments," appeared JMr. F. Cundall's article on "Constant Spring," 
from which I quote as follows : — 

" When the lands on the plain of Liguanea were divided amongst themselves 
by Cromwell's army of occupation, that part on which the Constant Spring estate 
stands fell to the lot of Lieut. -Colonel Henry Archbould,* a member of the first 
Council nominated in 16G1. He married in 1C6S (he was her third husband and 
she was his second wife) the mother of Sir Nicholas Lawes (afterwards Governor 
of the Colony), but died in the following year, she surviving him twenty years. 
His son Colonel Henry Archbould, who had sat for St. George from 1G80 to 1688, 
was elected Member of the Assembly for St. Andrew in 1701-2. 

" His wife Joanna AVilhelmina was sister to the wife and cousin of Sir Henry 
Morgan (buccaneer and Governor of Jamaica), and sister to the wife of Colonel 
Robert Byndlos, Chief Justice. She obtained a patent of naturalisation in 
August 1685. The second Colonel Archbould died in 1700, and was buried in 
Halfway-Tree Church. The first Colonel Archbould's second son, ^lajor AVilliam 
Archbould, was' member for St. Andrew in 1688. James Archbould, the son of 
his second wife, was member for St. Andrew in 1702-4, but sat for St. David in 

"In 1759 a private Act was passed (we read in Mr. Feurtado's ' Oilicial and 
other Personages of Jamaica,' 1S96) for the sale of certain lands in Liguanea 
belonging to Henry Archbould, late of the said ])arish, deceased, for payment of 
£8000 with interest, devised by the will of the said Henry Archbould to his 
daughter, Sarah Elizabeth Archbould, and for other purposes. 

"In 1765 Constant Sjjring estate, with some mountain land adjoining, called 
Snow Hill, was (the writer is informed by Mr. G. E. Judah) sold by Henry 
Archbould to Daniel Moore, etc."

"About the year IGGG, the Bridge-Town was burnt; and all the chief Records 
lost by a Hurricane, which happen'd the same year." (" Memoirs of the Eirst 
Settlement of Barbados," Appendix I.) 

In 1GG7 a commission collected all the Acts, "the Original Rolls being lost 
either in the Hurricane or Eire." The earliest of these Acts was dated 1648. 
By No. 5 Act, dated 13 March 1648, styled "An Act for the Transcription and 
safe keeping of the Records," it was enacted that the Secretary .•^hould draw a list 
of the books of records, and send them to some able person or Chief Oiiicer, who 
was to cause them to be transcribed. (-'Tlie Laws of Barbados," printed by 
John Baskett, fo. p. 5.) This officer was, I think, subsequently styled the Register 
or Registrar. By Act No. 41, passed in IGGl, the Pees of the Secretary's Office 
were settled, and the following papers are mentioned, viz. : Heed, bill of sale, 
bond, ticket, de])osition, liceiice for marriage, will, administration, inventory, etc. 
{IbiiL, p. 40.) Of the subsequent history of the Record Office I know little. 
Will some local authority give our readers an account of the present contents, 
with dates ?

The earlier portion of the pccliG;ree has been taken by Miss Nembhard from 
one drawn up by lawyers about 1807, endors^ed " Sketch of Descent of F. G. Smyth 
Es-^ from Geo."lJrooks sen. Geo. Brooks, Will Enf" 2P' Nov' 1750. Lib. 28, 
folio 19. Papers relative to Mrs. Witter. Xot e.xamined." George Brooks. s:reat- 
grandaon of testator, was Claimant under the will as Right Heir of Mrs. Witter, 
the surviving Uau. of the three. P. G. Smyth of Goshen was Claimant as sur- 
viving Heir of one of the Daus., being son of Era. Geo. Smyth, deceased, and 
grandson of Cath. Brooks and E. Smyth. The latter portion has been taken from 
the pedigree drawn up by her father, the late Major-Geneial jS'embhard (1S"_*7 — 
1905), founded on facts partly derived from his mother (ISOb — 187-1). The 

j pedigree requires proof from wills, deeds, and parish registers, but it is probably 

i fairly accurate. 

} A bookplate of John Brooks has been preserved ; it is in the Chippendale style, 

I with the Brooks arms so incorrectly engraved as to be useless for illustration. 

< It however shews on an escutcheon of pretence ; Gules, 07i a chevron Or three 

I pellets, a coat of some heiress which has not been identified. [Editor.] 



I This estate is iu the parish of St. Elizabeth, some tw'o miles from the village 

J of Santa Cruz. About a mile from the residence known as "Pear Tree Valley" 

i are the ruins of an old house with its large overgrown flower garden still traceable. 

I To the east, on a slight eminence four or Hvc chnins off, is the old family burial- 

I place, about 20 feet square, enclosed by a low stone wall. Within this is a stone 

^ tomb, surmounted by a massive black marble slab, with the following arms and 

j inscription : — 

' AuMS. — . . . . A cross enqrailed per pale .... (no tinctures). Ceest. — A ladder 

passant above an esquire's helmet. 

" Here lies the body of George Brooks, Esq"" the Elder, who departed this 
life May y*^ 0"', 1750, aged 62 years, who was an indulgent father, a loving 
husband, and a good friend." 

In his will (entered in the Record Office in Libro 28, fo. IS), dated 3 March 
1748 and proved 21 November 1750, he names his wife Eliz., six sons, Samuel, 

I John, George, Christopher, Thomas, and Francis, also four daus., Anna, Elizabeth, 

Bonella, and Catherine. 

I AVithout the enclosure, on the north, south, and east sides, are three more 

! tombs, of which the north side one has no inscription. The tomb on the south 

\ side has the following inscription on a limestone slab : — 

j " Here lieth the body of M" Elizabeth Chambers, who departed this life on 

I the 16 day of IMarch, 1772, aged 52^ years 3 months and eleven days. She was 

an indulgent parent and a good woman." 

The tomb to the east is inscribed as follows, also on a limestone slab : — 

" Here lieth the body of Boxella Cha.mbers who departed this life on Sunday 
the 6"' September 1772 aged 31 years and four mouths. She was a fond 
affectionate wife, a dutiful child, and a benevolent woman." 

\ The whole of the above information lias been derived from an article iu 

'i "The Gleaner" of Jamaica, 1S9S, by Leslie Alexander, a clerk in the Record 

I OfEce of Kingston.

The second John is thought to have been a natural son of George Brooks, Esq., 
because in 17(39 and 1775 privnte acts were passed to authorize tiie latter to 
dispose of his estate, without regard to the Law- of Disabilities, and to intitle his 
reputed children bv i\[arr Powell to the same rights as English ^jubjects (Feurtado). 

Dr. George Brooks inherited a moiety of the Chester estate Trehiwney and 
Mr. Kenyon the other from the widow of James Virgo Dunn, his great-uncle, 
but sold'this to Mr. Kenyon in 1844. He also sold outlying portions of Burnt 
Ground, and uegros were allowed to squat on the remainder.

Proved o February 1718 (22, Browning). 

"Col. Brooks" was named in the list of his officers drawn up by YenablcH. 
See Bridges' " Annals of Jamaica," 1827, i., p. 19S. Bridges has added a note 
that he settled in the parish of St. Eliz. 


P.C.C. FROM 1655 TO 1810. 

The following list of testators has been gradually made during a search, 
extending over many years, through the volumes of wills at Somerset House. 
1 do not think uuuiy names have been omitted, though some refereuces are sure lo 
have been overlooked. 

In 1656 a list was drawn up of officers au.l soldiers engaged in the Amencau 
EKpcdition who applied for arrears of pav, or on whose account chtims were made hy 
their widows, etc. (185 names, •' Colonial Cal."). On 18 April 1656 Sn.<ann;i. rohci; 
of Edward AVinslowe, Esq., and Josiah, bis son and cx'or. rL'])resented ttiat her 
husband was appointed on 12 Uecember 1651 one of the commissioners in the 
Expedition to the W.I., with a salarv of .CLOOO per annum, but died on the 
voyage 8 May 1655 {Ibid., p. 439). Capt. George Butler, and Mary, widow of 

♦ Their first sou Wiis Clns. Fred. (1810— I'JOo), A>sistant Bishop of J. 1SS3-1904, con- 
secrated ill Wustuiiiisler Abbey 30 Noveiubor 188S. 


Major-General Eichard Fortescue, are also among those named. See also her 
Petition of August LG61 (Ibid., p. o2). Considering that the death roll, at the 
abortive attack at Hispaniola alone, amounted to 1700, there are surprisingly few 
wills on record — less than 2 per cent. During the tirst six or seven years these 
relate mostly to soldiers and sailors, are very short, and of little interest, except 
when the ship is named, so I have not given a complete list of them. Instead of 
the familiar " H.M.S." the letters '' S.S." for " States Ship " were used during the 
Cromwellian usurpation.

No stone can be found of any earlier date. There may have been one in the 
church to Colonel Tho. Butler of ITU, but the building was completely destroyed 
by fire some sixty years ago. 

The first-named ^Ir. James Butler may have been the brother of Colonel Thos. 
Butler, but if he was the son he was buried 7 February 1770, aged 4S, at Okeford 
Fitzpaine, Dorset. I could not find any burial of that date in the parish register 
of Camberwell. 

The Hon. James Symonds, President of Nevis, by his will, dated 21 July 1758, 
wrote, " I forgive M'' Judith Butler, widow, now in England (sister to my late 
wife), all sums owino;," and settled all his estates on his only surviving child 
Judith, wife of Stapleton Dunbar of Nevis. Proved 7 September 176'J (P.C.C, 
398, St. Eloy). I cannot identify this Judith Butler, widow. Testator had 
married, 10 July 1718, at St. George, Nevis, Mary Butler, who owned the Moun- 
tain plantation in her own right. 

The following were extracted by me on 10 August 1909, btit a complete

On my visit to the church on 28 April 1909 this floor-stone could not be 
found, and as the chancel has been paved with modern tiles, it was probably 
destroyed during the so-called restoration of the church, or covered over by the

upwards of 30 years rector of that parish, and of ITannington, in the county of 

Wilts, and also of North Barrow, in Somersetshire. 

His life was devoted to the practice of virtue, and the duties of his holy callinix, 

yet his active mind found leisure for the pursuits of science and the useful 

mechanical arts. 
i He was afilicted with a dropsy combined with a liver complaint, the progress 

of which pointed out the approach of death, which he viewed undismayed, nnd 
h- being passionately fond of music, he took a solemn farewell of his organ a few 

!' days before his dissolution. 

His known skill in mechanics occasioned professional artists of eminence, 

especially opticians, to consult him, to whom he fully communicated many 
\ inventions of great value. AVith these talents and aci|uirements, he was uii-

There is a small mural tablet on the south wall of the church, bearintr the 
following inscription : — " 

In memory 

th§ EeV William Sutler, L.L.B. 

Vicar of Framptoii, 

who departed thi:^ life 

August 13, 1S13, 

aged SI. 

Hutchius (iv., 344) states that he was instituted Yicar of Sturminster Newton 
21 November 1791, but resigned in ISOO, and (ii., 302) that he was of Wadhara 
College, Oxford, B.C.L., and was instituted Eector of Frampton 1 February ISOO. 
A notice follows about his foxhunting taste. 

For a further account of '• Billy Butler the Hunting Parson " see " Notes and

In the Frome pedigree {Ihid., 184) she is entered as dau. of the Eev. Duke 
Butler, Eector of Okeford Fitzpaine. 

Her husband was LL.B. of Vadham College, instituted Eector 9 June 1777, 
and was also Eector of Minterue Magna and of Goathill, Somerset. 

)InljaI)itant$ of ^t I\itts in 1678. 

Sir "William Stapleton, that most energetic Governor of the Leeward Islands, 
sent home in 1G78 complete lists of the inhnbitants of Antigua, St. Kitts, Nevis, 
and Montserrat, but only the totals for the Virgin Islands. These are the earliest 
known and of great interest. Those of Antigua having been already printed in 
my "History" of that Colony, I now give tlie list for St. Kitts, which 1 have 
copied exactly, only substituting S for the long "1"" and F for " ff ," as being 
more convenient to the reader. Some of the luimes arc difficult to decipher, the 
Irish ones being worse (to me, at aiiy rate) than the French. In the same 
volume ore lists of tiic .Members of the Council and Assembly, but these may be 
seen in the official Colonial Calendar. 

I cannot account for the large inimber of Irish in this Island, unless they 
were imported to work on the estates. Later, during the war with the French, 
they sided with their country's enemies. I^aws against Papists were then 
enforced, and 1 believe most of them were removed or went to Montserrat, which 
was almost wholU populated by Irish. 



Many of the French, when persecuted by tlieir own countrymenj who owned 
the two ends of tlie Island, fled across the borders to the English quarter. Tlie 
Huguenots were especially welcome, aud intermarried with some of the best 
families. In the earlier period the Dutcli had all the plantation business and 
carrying trade. Only one Scotchman and one Welshman appear in the list !

1780, Sat. Feb. 12. Saturday morning died in St. James's-square, in the 76th 
year of his age, Henry Cruger, Esq ; (father of Henry Cruger, Esq ; one of our 
Kepresentatives in Parliament), Having been some years in a rerj' ill state 
of health, he left New-York, the place of his nativity and residence, where he 
had sustained a most respectable private character, and filled the various offices 
of Member of the Assembly, Member of the Council, and Chief jNIagistrate, with 
the highest reputatiou. The cheerfulness of his disposition, and the nft'ability of 
his manners, had endeared him to all those who had the pleasure of his acquaint- 
ance in this country. His remains were interred on Tues-iay morning in the 
Cathedral of this cily. {'' F.B.J.") 

He had large interests in the AYest Indies, as appears by his will, wherein he 
describes himself as Henry Cruger, Sen'', late of New York, now at Bristol. 
Estates in Jamaica and St. Croix ; proved 1780 (125, Collins). 

In St. James's Chapel, llampstead Poad, is a tablet to Lieut. -Col. John 
Harris Cruger, late of Eussell Place, Fitzroy Square, who died 3 June 1807, aged 
69. He formerly resided in New York, and greatly distinguished himself as 
a Loyalist officer, etc. (Cansick's "Epitaphs," i., 225.) 

The following is from Sabine's " American Loyalists," 234 : — 

" Cruger, John. Of New York. In 1775 he was Speaker of the House of 
Assembly, and during the recess that year, with thirteen other members of the 
ministeiial party, addressed a letter to General Gage on the alarming state of 
public affairs. This communication is dated JNIay 5th, on which dny two niembers 
of the Council of New York sailed for England. AVheii, in 17G9, he was elected 
to the assembly, the success of his party was deemed a victory of the Episcopalians 
over the Presbyterians." 

1822, May 16. At Chelsea, 78, Anne, relict of Col. Cruger, and dau. of late 
Brig.-gen. De Lnncey. (" G.M.," 572.)

Bristol, and its representative in Parliament, Anth Mr. Burke, from 1774 to 1780. 
In 1784 Mr. Cruger was again returned to the House of Commons, and on that 
occasion was represented on the hustings by his brother. Col. Cruger, being 
himself absent in America. lie finally left this country for the United States 
in 1789, where he has since constantly resided ; and it may be gratifying to his 
old friends (if aiiy survive) to know, that no man ever lived more highly respected, 
or died more sincerely lamented. {Ibid., 94.)

were only three men, two woemen, and 2 children the Lidians left the rest of 
I their companions at the seaside or in bushes it is reported they wore 300 men I 

' judge 2-iO in six periagocs. As they came to the house they spyed one of y" 

''. people splitting of wood whom they stuck with arrowes and left him for dead, to 

those in the house (they pretended as it is their custom most treateherous) they 
came in friendship, and demanded drinke which was given them thorogh a 
window, and one of those within told them If you come in friendship goe and 
expell the poyson of them arrows you have shott at j" man without and cure 
him: butt iusteed of applyeiiig y*^ Juce of y^ indian arrow root to him one of 
them who spoke good Euglish (called cap' peeter who lived formerly at Barbados 
with CoH JMoris) staved his braines out with his owne ax sayeing hang y'= dog he 
is not to be cured upon which they discontinued their parly and y*^ christian 
within fired and shot this peeter in y'^ hand and he shot y'= christian in one of his 
fingers upon this act they parlyed again promisseing each other to fire noe more : 
butt those treacherous villaines killed 3 boyes that were without the house 
knocking their heades against a tree. In fine they gott to y'^ house all y'^ partie 
they had hid and forced in one of the roomes, y*' people within not being able to 
deffend round all y'^ roomes, y'= eomander of y^ place one cap' francis Malhaui 
comeing to y'= deffense ot y*^ house being abroad with some men was shot by y"^ 
Indians with a brace of Bullets thorogh the hart they^ killed & in all his wife y*^ 
two children and a ser' woeinan escaped by y*^ assistance of one of y*^ men whilst 
y^ Indians were driiikeing kill devill or Hum (this country spiritt) aud pillageiiig

of as it is their practice if they can and left cap' peeter dead behind. 

I begg your Lordships pardon If I am tedious and doe pray your honours to 
represent to his Majestic y"^ necessitie of destroyeiug those caribie Indians and y'

I have omitted from the following interesting letter a lengtby M.I. to John 
Hawksley, Esq., froi') a tombstone at the west end of a small broken and empty 
vault, situated on the pasture land to the soutii-east of Bodkins sugar works. 
The M.I. i.s practically a duplicate of the one on the tablet in iSt. Paul's Church 
(" Antigua," ii., 87), which latter records that the burial was at Bodkins.

Dickie Hill. I see in Bakei''s Map of 1746 — S the residence of Richard 
Oliver is shewn on what is now known as " Dickie Hill." There are a number of 
tombstones on this hill, but most of the inscriptions are illegible and the stones 
badly broken. The most legible are the following : — 

1. " Here lies the body of ^lary Cameron, who departed this life July 2'"' 

1802, aged 8 years, 2 months, 21 days." 

2. '■ Sacred to the memory of Henrietta Horsford who departed this life

3. " Here lies the body of Mary Darby who depaited this life June [rest 


Standing up in the pasture about ].jO yards from the little graveyard in v.hich 
the above stones, and perlui]is six or eiglit more, stand or lie, is one stone marked : 
" My Elizabeth dep. IMay 12"' 1S05." The inscription is quite clear. The stone 
faces the north-east, so that it may not have been the grave of a human being, 
but that of a slave, or possibly of au animal.

WILLIAMS (I., 192). 

As regards the AVillianis of AViJliams Earm, the W. "NV. on the old mill was 
AVilliam Williams, son of Josepii "Williams. This family sprung from the Old 
Road AVilliams family, but was coloured and illegitimate. AVilliam "Williams" 
brother was a manager here, and his daughter married a black man, who is well 
known here to-day in business circles — ^Mr. S. L. Athill. The last of them left 
the island years ago and the above lady is dead. The flint-.stone windmill was 
built from money obtained under the "Eartluiuake Loan" of the fortifs, but 
apparently did not remain long in operation. This is why this mill does not 
appear in either Baker's or Lulfman's maps.

A Tho. Goldwin was M. of A. for Clarendon in 1787 (Fcurtado). Ho. appears 
to have retired to England, where be purchased an estate called Vicars Hill in 
Boldre, Hampshire. Here his wife Elizabeth was buried 27 December 1808, aged 
47, and he on 23 October 1809, aged (JO, s.p. His will was made 23 January and 
])roved 10 November lb09 (822. Loveday), and in it he names his sister Lucy 
Breton aud her tcu children, niece Maria Hardy, niece Eliza Aim Burrard, 


sister-in-law Susanna Coppell, cousin Louisa Aldridgc, nieces Caroline and Eliz. 
t- Shickle, ar.d refers to a conveyance by Eliz. Martha Pickeriiisr, late of Kickmans- 

1 worth and formerly of Jamaica, dated 2 April 1787, to him of Go slaves. The 

I late Goldwin Smith's mother, Eliz. Breton, was a dau2;hter of the above Lucy

pareutagc of Tho. Goldwin of Jamaica known? Further information is desired 
about the above families. 


i In pursuance of this subject it may be noted that in IGGl this Island was 

I reinforced by Governor Sir Tho. Modyford with 1,000 Biirbadiaus. The army 

l ■ during the first few years of occupation had mostly died off from intemperance, 

[ had neglected planting, and the military government had ceased in IGoO. 

L On 27 February the King's Instructions were drawn up for Col. Edw. jNlorgan 

i as Deputy-Governor of Jamaica to embark in the Ifesferi/afe for Barbados, to 

f hand over there a " black box " containing Commissions and Instructions and a 

I ' purse of £3,000 to Colonel Sir Tho. Modyford, the new Governor of Jamaica. 

I Lord AVilloughbj' was also ordered to pay over £1,000 in sugars and give all 

I possible assistance. 

'I The Westergate arrived on 21 April, a " malign distemper " having carried off 

i thirty of her passengers. Colonel Morgan was instructed on 2 May to sail at 

once with several scores of planters for Jamaica. 

Sir Thomas followed a few days later, arriving about 1 June with 987 persons, 
in the Weslergate, Captain Stokes, Marmadiike, and Swallow. It would be very 
interesting to learn the names of the above settlers from Barbados. Unfortu- 
natel}^ the State Papers don't give them, but the Book of Patents at Jamaica 
should record the names of all those who took out grants of land. 

Is this book still preserved, and what is the earliest dated patent it contains ?

The years of that period in which the seventh of July fell on Tlmrsday were 
1743 and 174S according to the Old Style calendar, and 1757 according to the 
KeM' St_\le, but it stems imrossible to fix the year of the festivities described with 

As to the authorship of the quaint and fascinating verses, it has been suggested 
that the initials AV. S. were those of William Shirley, the well-known ^lassa- 
chusotfs Bay governor of the time, but they might equally well have been those 
of his nephew Washington Shirley, of His Majesty's iS'avy. Indeed, imich more 
likely is it that the naval officer would have been attending social festivities at 
Antigua than that the New England governor wonld have done so. AVhileitis 
true that the initial letters fit tliese Jiames, it is unlikely that the real name of 
the author is divulged by them. The authorship of the poem has been ascribed 
in all seriousness to Eev. Charles Chaurcy of Boston ; but it is unfair to suppose 
a sedate, jjious and ortb.odox minister of iS'ew England to have been guilty of 
such rac}' and amorous verses " after seeing the Assembly " of dancers in Antigua 
and Boston.

A short liistory of this family has just been published, which makes a very 
welcome addition to our scant West Indian j;eiiealo<:;ies. Tlie first portion com- 
prises the notes made by General Eol)crt Ilaynes (17G9 — 1S51). These consist 
of memoranda relating to his family, interspersed with bits of local history, and 
are very interesting and valnable. TIk- second portion contains a genealogy sent 
by an American gentleman, but this is so full of incorrect dates and other errors 
as to be quite unreliable. 

The pedigree of the family can be ])roved from Eichard Ilaynes of Newcastle 
in St. Joint's Parish, who was tliere married to Elvy Thorne on oU July 171S. 
A certain John Haynes, Constable of that parish in ICJGl and Surveyor of Eoads 
1671, is supposed to be identical with one of those names, formerly of Barbados, 
then of New Torlc, merchant, born Iti:}!). who died 9 December l(jSl). and in his 
■will, dated 24- August 16b9, named his wife Eliz , his son John, then at Barbados, 
and his son Andrew, also his brother Robert Ilaynes in Barbados. This Eobert 
was presumably identical with the man of those names who was sidesn^an of 
St. John's 16S;i-l, Surveyor of Eoads IGSi — S, and of the Vestry in 1G95. The 
above-mentioned Eichard was probably descended from one of these two brothers 
John and Eobert, but search will be necessary to establish this. 

The parish register of St. John's commences — Marriages from 16 August 
1G57, Burials from 10 August 16o7, and several entries are given from these, but 
no Baptisms. Let us hope that when further data have been secured, and 
abstracts of wills and indentures made from the l^egistrar's Office at Bridgetown, 
a revised and fuller edition, with a tabular pedigree, may be published.

Ralph Payne was tlic eldest son and heir of Ralph Payne, Chief Justice of 
St. Kitts, by his first wife Alice, only daughter and eventual heiress of Colonel 
Francis Carlile of Antigua. He is stated ("'D.X.B.") to have been born at 
St. George's, Basseterre, St. Kitts, on 19 ]March 1737-8 or 173S-9. In 1753, 
being then under age, he joined with his father in the settlement of cerhiin 
plantations. After being educated in England (he was not at O.vford) he 
returned to St. Kitts, when he was elected a ^Member of tlie Assembly and chosen 
Speaker. In 17G2 he returned to England and made the tour of Europe, and 
about December of this year or January 17(38 his father died. On 1 September 
17G7 he married, at St. George's. Hanover Scjuare, Francoise Lambertine, daughter 
of the late Frederick ^Maximilian (the •'D.N.B.' calls him Henry) J3aron Kolbcl 
of Saxonv, a General iu the Imperial Service. She had come over in the house- 
hold of the Princess Poniatowski, si.^tor to the King of Poland. In 17GS he was 
residing in Queen .Anne Street, Cavendish Square, and was return.ed to P.irliament 
for Shaftesburv, sitting until 1771. On IS February 1771 he was createtl a 
K.B., and in May liis commission was issued as (lOvcrnor-Genera! of tlie Leeward 
Islands, a post worth some £ 1,0()U sterling a year. He arrived at Antigua on 
1 February 1772. Ou 23 March 177-3 the Legislature voted £I()0() c. for a 
voii. II. u 


sword for presentation to him. TTe retired to England before July of tliis year, 
and on 17 Pebruary 1770 wrote t'roin liis liousic in Charles Street resigning his 
office of Governor-General. He was Clerk of the Eoard of Green-Cloth 1777 — 
17S2, and re-entered Parliament, sitting as member for Camelt'drd November 
1776 — 17S0, and Plympton 17^50 — I7SJ-. He was a Whig and supporter of Pox, 
and entertained lavishly at his house in Grafton Street. In 17SS he went for a 
lengthy tour on the Continent. In 1793 he joined Pitt's party. On 1 October 
1795 he was created Earon Lavington of Ireland. Prom 21 October 1795 to 
1799 he sat for 'W'oodstock. In Pebruary 1799 he was re-appointed Governor- 
General of the Leeward Islands, and on 30 October made a Privy Councillor. 
He arrived at Antigua 12 Pebruary ISOl and resided there until his death on 
3 August 1S07, aged 6S. He was buried on 4 August in his garden on his 
plantation " Carliles." A magnificent marble monument was erected to his 
memory by the Legislature in St. Juhn's Church at a cost of 1,000 guineas, which 
was thrown down by the earthquake in 1S43, only the portion with the M.I. 
remaining. Lady Lavington was voted £300 a year for her life, and died in 
Hampton Court Palace on 2 May 1S30. (See "D.IS'.B." and "Antigua," 
vols. i. and iii.)

"The Lynch family -was possessed of a small estate called Grove, in the parish 
of Staple in the county of Kent. They were of some antiquity, for arms were 
confirmed to them in 1572. Theop'nilus Lynch, bnpt. 1G03, appears tu have 
married the dau. and h. of ... . Kixton of Kixton Hail, in the village of Great 
Sankey in the parish of Prescot in Lancashire, whose pedigree was entered in the 
Herald's Visitation of that county. ' Hall Wliittlc,' an ancient building supposed 
to have been the seat of the family of Sankey, was subsequently occupied by the 
Rixtons of Sankey, who were seated here in the sixteenth century, and is now 
the property of Lord Lilford." (Baiues's " Lancashire," edited by Croston, 
v., 83.) 

No entries relating to the family of Thcophilus Lynch could he found in the 
Prescot parish register; hut from Warrington (the nearest cliurch to Sankey) 
the parish clerk sent me the three following, though he could not discover 
the marriage: —

1664, July 21. Sir Tho. Modyford writes of " Col. Lynch the Provost-Marshal 
a pretty understanding gentleman and very useful here ; he has an estate, and 
would be very well beloved were he sheriff instead of marshal." 224. 

1664, Oct. Sir Chas. Lyttelton writes that he left the Government in the 
Council, who chose Col. Lynch President, whom he also appointed commander of 
the forces and judge of the courts. 23S. 

1665, Feb. 12. Lt.-Col. Tho. Lynch writes that the Governor has discharged 
him from his Council and oflice of Chief Justice. It only constrains Lynch's 
return and prevents the resolution he had to marry, send for his relations, and 
make this his England. Starts to-morrow towards New England. Intends in 
Spain to obtain permission to buy cattle in Cuba. Thougli 10 years of sufferings 
and hazards have endeared the Island (of J.) to him, yet resolves never to

for cattle at the South Keys of Cuba, and Col. Lynch, in a youthful bravery, 
intends to apply for a licence at Madrid to purchase 2,000 or 3,000, 281. 

1665, Oct. i3. He writes to Lord Alington from Bristol. 324. 

From 1665 to 1670 Col. Tho. Lynch apparently resided in England, and 
Le Neve thus records his knighthood : — 

"Lane. S'' Thomas Ltxch of Rixton hall in Great Soukey Governor of 
Jamaica knighted at Whitehall 3 December 1670." (Le Neve's " Knights," 243.) 

A week or so later followed his marriage with Vere, daughter of Lady Herbert 
of Weybridge in Surrey and of the late Sir Edward Herbert (miscalled " George "' 
in the " D.N.B. "), who had been Attoruey-Geueral in the reign of Charles I., 
and died in 1657. 

1670-1, Jan. 5. Having been this day commissioned by the King as Lieut. - 
Governor lie returned to .Jamaica with his wife and family, arriving on .June 2'>. 

1671, Nov. 20. Sir Thomas wrote " that his wife was brought to bed of a 
son (Charles) five weeks ago." (-'America and W.I.," 277.) 

In Blome's " History of Jamaica" is a map oi: the Island engraved in Uwl, 
with a shield of " S"' Thomas Lynch knight, present Governour of y^ Isle," bcavir.g 
these arms: Quarterly. 1 and 4, three h/nxcs rampant (for Lynch) ; 2 and 'S, on 
a bend three covered cups (for his mother, an heiress of Kixton of Jli.ctoi. Ki-il). 
Sir Thomas was recalled by the King's letter of 20 xVovember 1674, Lord ^ r.uglii.u 
having been appointed Governor and Capt.-Geueral by pateat of tho previous 
April 3rd. • r ■ ' . 

102 Cahibbeana. 

1675. On March 7 he handed over the government to Sir Henry Morgan 
lately constituted Lieut.-Gov., Lord Vauglian taking over siipre tie command on 
hia landing on the 13th. (•' America and \\^.I.," 1S2 — 4.) 

After settling all his acconuta he left in May for England, where he took up his 
residence at his house in Leicester Fields. He was for the next year often called 
before the Lords of Trade and Plantations to give information about the Colony. 

In 1U79-SO he purchased tlie manor of Esher, a few miles from Lady Herbert's 
home at AVeybridge. 

1681. His commission as Capt. -General, Vice-Admiral, & Governor-in-Chief 
was drawn up on Ang. 6, & he sailed about the end of the year. After being over 
16 weeks windbound he quitted ^Madeira on 6 April lUSli, leaving his wife behind 
at that place in a dying condition, and arrived at his seat of government on 
June 14. (" America and W.I.," 09, 21G.) 

Lady Lynch probably' returned from Madeira to Esher, as she was buried there 
on Sept. 30. 

Sir Thomas shortly afterwards married (evidently in Jamaica) Mary, dau. and 
coh. of Tho. Temple of Eraukton in Warwickshire (Le Neve's " Knights," 213), 
whose sister Anne had married in 16GG Sir Clias. Lyttelton of Jamaica. 

On 25 Peb. IGSl Major Peter Eeckford was described as Sir Tho. Lynch's 
nephew. (" America and W.I.," 590.) 

1684. Col. Hender Molcsworth wrote home on Aug. 30 : " Sir Thomas Lynch 
died on the 24"' instant." (Ibid., OSl.) 

He was buried under a black marble slab in St. Catharine's Church,* one of 
seven slabs lying on the flour of the chancel within the communion rails, on which 
were his arms, three li/nxes rampant., and crest, a lynx statant, and this 
inscription : — 

" Here lyes Sir Lrxcn in Peace, at Ease, & Blest 
Would you know more, the World will speak ye liest." 

(Eoby, 17 ; Archer, 58.) 

He was an able upright Governor and endeavoured to suppress piracy and 
privateering, which in their various forms were much encouraged by certain 
persons, who derived large profits from the sale of captures at Port Koyal. That 
he was honest is proved by his dying so short of ready money, that his widow was 
compelled to borrow £50>3 for the expcuces of his funeral. (" America and W.I.," 


The charges of embezzlement his enemies brought against him after his death 
were apparently groundless or trivial. 

Lady Lvnch, who was but eighteen at the death of Sir Thomas, retired to 
England, where she remarried, 12 Feb. lGSS-9, Col. lleuder ^lolesworth, her late 
husband's great frieud, for whom Sir Thomas had obtained the ollice uf Lieut. - 
Governor, and who as such carried on the government after his death. (See 
pedigree of ]Molesworth in A'iviau's '• Visitation of Cornwall," i.,327, and CoUins's

There were in 16G() only four Quaker families in Antigua, of whom were 
Jonas Langford, who contributed to Besse's "Sufferings of the (Quakers" the 
Antiguan section, and Capt. Sam. Winthrop. One of these two may have sent 
the paper to London. They were, however, both highly educated, and the spelling 
throughout is execrable, but Mr. G. Eothergill h:is had it copied verbatim and 
without alteration. Portions of the record are also illegible or destroyed.

Equity of Redemption and by an Act of J. ] asstd in 1731 for the prevention of 

fraudulent mortgages the offenders are liable to punishment according to the laws 

of England and forfeit the right of redemption and the said estates became vested

proved the first bond J. I. Bernal as of Nov. Grand Court 1777 caused an action 

in Ejectment to be brought and obtained possession of the estates and on 12 Nov.

MAY V. BERNAL, 1783. 

Jamaica. In Chancery. The Hon. Rose Herring IMay of the Parish of 
S"' Dorothy Esq. and 3Iary Trelawny his wife Complainants and Jacob Israel 
Bernal and Robert Fiulay adm'or of Abraham Biggs Defendants. 

The Bill filed 10 ]\Iai'ch 1783 set.s forth that Comjjiainant having become 
indebted to AVm. Gray of the Parish of Kingston J. Esq. in the sum of £19,G81 
sterling or £27,553 c. repayable by installir.ents s])read over 12 years secured by 
12 bonds dated 20 !!\rarch 1775 with Interest at G per cent., etc., and being seized 
iu fee simple of those two plantations of Gymbalis and Cherry Garden in tlie 
Parish of S' Dorotliy containinij together 520 a. and slaves as a collateral security 
by a Mortgage of 20 iNfarch 1775 conveyed them to AVm. Gray [here follow the 
names of all the slaves] and on Cherry Garden 44 steers and IG mules and on 
Gymbalis 32 steers 13 cows 5 calves and 10 mules and "W"' Gray assi£;iied his 
interest to J. I. Bernal on 20 Ap. 1775 by an Ind're of Transfer of Mortgage 
tripartite between Gray, May, and Bernal. Complainant being in Bath the 
following Oct. and considering the mortgage was not above one third the value 
of the estates 'borrowed £G000 of jMessrs. Tho. Pennington and Ab. Biggs of 
Bristol Merchants and by lud'res of lease and release dated 23 and 24 Oct. 1775 
he granted to them the said two estates by way of mortcage. That the 1^' bond 
was paid off but by reason of the great drought preceding the crop of 1777 the 
proceeds were reduced from 247 hhds. of sugar to one hhd. and 8 tierces and he 
could not meet the 2'^ boiul so by the Common law the est. of Bernal became 
absolute but suliject in equity to be redeemed pro tanto and Bernal at Nov. 
Grand Court 1777 brouirht an action in Ivjectinent and Replevin and Compl' 
came to an agreement witli him on 9 Dec 1777 [recited in full] by which he was 
to retain the nianagcment of the estates M'' Bernal was to ship the produce and 
the whole debt was to bo paid off in 7 years but Bernal withheld the necessary 
supplies so on G March 1778 he gave up possession but to retain tie managenu'ut 
and cultivation. Ever since the management lias been refused him aiul no 
balance has been paid over and Bernal on 12 Nov. 177!) filed his Bill against

referred to a Master of this Court and the estate*! sold and Compl' put In his 
Answer about 29 Dec. 17^0. Bornal sailed in May i)ast for Groat Britain 
and has delayed the suits and has received o\er and above what was due to him 
having sold 084 hhd.s, and 340 puncheons of rum worth £34,000 c. Compl' 
onglit to be reinstated and accounts submitted. The non reciting of the first 
mortgage on the 2^' one was due to his inadvertence. The £0000 ^was not half 
the value of the equity of redemption. Pennington and Biizgs not being repre- 
sented in this I. one Roh<- Finlay of the parish of «' Catharine gent, was granted 
letters of adm'on to defend this suit. Prays that the Agreement may be

barrister of Lincoln's Inn in 1810. He then inherited a large property in the

was educated at Charterhouse, and uiatriculated from Trinity Coll., Cambridge, Oct. 
1829; entered the Army, and then sat in Parliament from ISil to 1874. On 
20 August 1S44 he married, at St. George's, Hanover Square, Catherine Isabella, 
only child and heir of Sir Thomas Osborne, 9tli Bart., whose surname he assumed. 
She died at his seat Newtown Anner near Clonmell 21 June 18S0. He died at 
Bestw-ood Ledge 4 January 1882, and was there buried on 10 January. They 
had issue two daughters, of whom the elder, Edith, married, 7 February 1874, 
Sir Henry Arthur Blake, G-.C.M.G-., Governor of the Bahamas and .lamaica ; and

Answer of Defd' J. I. Bernal p' Att>-, 17St. 

Jamaica. In Chancery. At II. E. the Chancellor's House on Thiirsclaj 
15 April 1781. 

The Petition of Jacob I^;racl TJcrnal ^Merchant of Kingston but now absent 
from this I. being read it was ordered that 1)0 put in his answer by .Aaron Nunes 
Henriques of Kingston ^lerchant his Atl">. 

Annexed is a letter dated 14 April 177S written br Bernal to I?. H. ^Nlay, 
saying that "Since my receiving possession of GAiriballs and Cherry Garden 
Estates .... it has been discovered that there is another ^Mortgage upon liecord 
from you to Pennington and Biggs of Bristol," ' and the writer e.xjjresses liis 
astonishment that his Mortgage was not mentioned in the second one and states 
that all right of redemption had been forfeited and was now vested in the second 
mortgagees and refuses to have any further business transactions.' 

This Defendant admits that if H. 3Iay became bound by 12 bonds to W"' 
Gray and was seized in fee simple of Gymballs and Cherry Garden and certain 
slaves and Gray transferred them to him for £10,(381 sterling the amount due, 
and soon after the Complainants left for Great Britain and said they would in 
Oct. be in Bath and he has no doubt May borrowed the £0000 from Pennington 
and Big<2;s. £1!),()S1 was greater than the sum ]\I;>y paid for the estates. 

There xvas a very great Drought preceding the cro]) of 1777 and only 1 hhd. 
xvas made. In 177o the yield was lO'J lihds. and 132 tierces (equal to 8S hlids.) 
or a total of 197 hhds. and 72 ])uncheons of rum and in 1770 !)0 hluls. 70 tierces 
and 5G pun. and in 1775 there were worked 180 slaves. ?»lay neglected the shaves 
and the reason the 2'^ bond was not paid off was owing to his extravagance and 
great losses in gaming at Bath and elsewhere — that by insufficient supplies and 
overwork the slaves in 1777 were reduced by death from ISO in 1775 to 111 
and the cattle from 115 to 73, there were no mules left, and ^lay had used his 
chariot horses to turn the mill and Defd' obtained possession to save the estate 
from ruin. — He never knew of the 2'' mortgage when he met iNfay and signed an 
aKreement on 9 Dec. 1777. Yerilv believes Mav intended to defraud his 
creditors .... has received the following crops

interred at Christ Church on Tuesday. She was stated to have died of

up in a counterpane, an eye was knocked out, several contusions about the 
head and other parts of the body, one arm and 3 or 4 ribs broken, and the 
body altogether dreadfully disfigured. An inquest was held. Verdict of

Original letter on a half-sheet of paper, fob, in the Editor's possession. 
The will of a Tho. AVm. Burlcy Ifall. ordnance store-keeper of the Bahamas, 
Esq., was proved in 179S (542, AValpole). 


In an article contributed to "The Tablet" of 2S Jan. last, Mr. Porcival Lucas 
gives conclusive evidence proving that the late Cardinal Manning was born in the 
year ISOS, and not in 1S07, as stated by Purcell iu his " Biograidiy." 


Francis Brooks, the sixth son of George Brooks, did not die s.p. Tie left at 
least two children, a son AVilliam and a daughter Frances. The daughter mar- 
ried in August 1791 John S pence Brodbclt (St. Doiothy I^egistcr, vol. i.. p. 30), 
and marriage notice in the "St. Jago Gazette" of 4th August 1791 : "Married. 
On Monday evening John S. Brodbelt, Esquire, to iVIiss Frances Brooks, tlie 
daughter of Francis Brooks, Esq., deceased." The Brodbelts had a large family, 
of whom the youngest daughter, .luiian Cardonal (ISOG — 1842), married, 
1 January 1829, my grandfather AVilliam Livingston (1S05— 1SG3). 

The son AA'^illiam Brooks married a sister of the above John Spence Brodbelt, 
namely, Frances Virgo Brodbclt, a few days after his sister's marriage. The 
following is the notice from the "St. Jago Gazette" for 11th August 1791: 
" Married. On Sunday evening last in this Town AVilliam Brooks, Esq., to Miss 
Frances A'^irgo Brodbelt, daughter of John Brodbelt, Esquire." There was issue 
of this marriage two daughters. 

This Mrs. Brooks was a great friend of Michael Scott, the author of " Tom 
Cringle's Log."

I find that there is iu the Record OtEcc of this Island an exemplification of 
the will of John Spooner of St. George, Bloomsbury, co. Middlesex, which will 
was proved in the P.C.C. 17 January 1758. 

By the Records of Deeds in the same Oilicc I find tliat J. Spooner acquired by 
purchase from .lolm Cossley and others " Eolus Valley " plantation in the parish 
of St. David in this Island, and adjoining lands, in July 1744, also " Cambriilge " 
plantation antl lands in the same pari.sli. Tliey were very extensive properties. 

By a deed of assignment and release he and another obtained from Joseph 
Hiscox and others certain bonds rtdating to property in the parish above named 
in July 174U. And he ohtained other lands iu St. David from John Brook iu 
July 1752. 

By the recitals in this deed of assignment and release it appears that he was 
a merchant, as his lather John Spooner. also of Bloomsbury, was, and both were 


connected in business with Mr. Hiscox — his father with the elder Hiscox, and he 
with the }'oini<:;cr. 

By the records there appear also administrations in Jamaica of the personal 
estate of Jane Isahelhi Spooner of Great Britain, widow, 9 April lb02, and of 
Hungerford Spooner of Great Britain, Esq., 15 October 1S28. 


The records of the Patents of Lands granted to the old settlers of Jamaica 
are all intact. But they are indexed alphabetically in the names of the grantees, 
80 that to get at the dates one has to go through the entire index.

I do not think that Thos. Goldwin had any ancestors in Jamaica, and as there 
is no will of his recorded here I can make no reference to it in order to obtain 
information. The ilrst mention of the name of '" Goldwin " in anv of the records 
of Jamaica is in a deed of sale of eleven slaves from George Moufton of f<t. Doro- 
thy, Merchant, to Thomas Goldwin of the same place, ^Merchant, dated 2-1 July 
1773. He thus evidently uuist have arrived in the Island with some moans, for 
in 1777 he married Elizabeth, daughter of Jolm Shickle of Clarendon, a large , 

landed proprietor and owner (infer alia) of "Banks" or "New Savoy" Sugar \ 

Estate and " Shieklc's Pastures " in Clarendon. M'hen Shickle died he left 
Goldwin and AVilliam Coppell (who had, before Goldwin's marriage, married 
another daughter) two of his executors. His personal estate, including slaves 
(£G000), amounted to nearly £GO,000 current money of Jamaica (£*3U,U00 ster- 
ling). He died in 17S2. By the marriage settlement on his daughter's marriage ,,., . 
with Goldwin he settled £5000 on her, Goldwin settling also a like amount, in . '. .- 
the marriage settlement Goldwin is described as of Clarendon, Merchant. In - 
1779 Shickle conveyed to ^Irs. Goldwin fourteen slaves as a Deed of Gift. 

The second and third Deeds of Pecords to Goldwin describe him as also of 
St. Dorothy, Merchant. They are dated respectively 177S and 1779, and are 
conveyances to him of 200 acres in Clarendon, and of MuUctt Hall, GIO acres, also 
in Clarendon. Following are four deeds (1779). The ilrst is from Shickle of an 
estate called Monnsons of 1S5 acres in Yere. The second and third arc supple- 
mental deeds of " ^luUett Hall," and the fourth a conveyance to him of Chapman's 
Hall, 300 acres, in Clarendon. In these he is described as of Clarendon, 
Merchant. I may mention that in 177G, in a deed of conveyance to him of 
"Long's Wharf" in Clarendon from Beeston Long, he is described as of 
St. Dorothy, Merchant, but this deed was not recorded until 178-1. After this 
latter date he acquired properties for himself individually and in conjunction with 
"Wm. Coppell, both of them having become partners and trading in Kingston as 
merchants, and in all these deeds he is described as of Kingston, Merchant. The 
partnership between hin\ and Coppell must have commenced in about 17S1-5, for 
in the latter year Mullett Hall was conveyed in trust to the firm, the property 
having been cleared of the several mortoaffcs on it, which fell into Goldwiu's 
hands. He retired to Great Britain in 179G, for his powers of attorney to Coppell 
and others are dated in June of that year. 

Peter Breton of Kingston married Lucv, sister of Thomas Goldwin, in about 

Mrs. Elizabeth Israel Pickering was evidently the mother of Mrs. Coppell 
and Mrs. Goldwin and of their brother John Hayle Shickle, for John Shickle in 
his will mentions them as children of Elizabeth Montin or Elizabeth .Montin 
Israel. She must have married after the death of John Shickle.

The late Mrs. Arthur Shand wrote me 27 May 1909 : " I got Canon Shepherds 
young daughter to go with me to the churchyard, and by scraping off moss, etc., 
managed to get at the inscriptions. Several of the fine old very large slate slabs 
are broken up and lying in different parts of the churchyard, and some few grave- 
stones have been used for building purposes. I have been inquiring about 
private burial-grounds, but there appear to be none here." 

There are eight tablets in this Church, of which the tirst four are on the walls 
of the chancel and the remaining four elsewhere. There are also six floor-stones, 
making, with ten stones in the churchyard, a total of twenty-four memorials.

The Brodbelts or Broadbelts of Xevis are all descended from Lawrence B. 
of that Island, whose will was proved 9 April 1G60 (P.C.C, 13(5, May). They 
resided in St. John's P;irisli, and it is hoped that their pedigree may appear later. 

In St. Catherine's Cathedral, Jamaica (Koby, 31), is a tablet with arms to 
Francis l^igby Brodbclt, M.D. (born 9 October 174G, -died 9 December 179 J), 
but his parentage is not giA-en. 

There is another tablet in the same church to Mrs. Anna Maria Eldred, wife 
of Mr. Edward Eldred, surgeon. She died 21 December 17C1, aged 19, and was 
dau. of Daniel Brodbelt, Esq., by Anna ^laria his wife. Slie may have been 
sister to Dr. V. H. Brodbclt. 

Lawrence Brodbelt of Nevis, at his death about 1727, left a son Daniel Brod- 
belt, and the latter may be identical with Daniel Brodbclt of Jamaica.

AYilliam AVoodley of Nevis in 1G7S had 

two children then liviiHj;. One of these was, 

I believe, A\^illiam AVoodley of St. Kitts, 

who was aged 32 in 1707 (which would give 

his birth about 1G75), and the other was 

probably the John AVoodley who was of 

St. Paul's, Nevis. A pedigree of the 

St. Kitts branch of the family appeared in 

"Antigua," iii., 25G. The arms used were: 

SalJc, a chevron between three owls Arijent. 

Ceest. — An owl. 

A AVilliam AA^nidley matriculated from Queen's Coll., Oxon., 21 April 173S, 

aged 16, as son of John of Nevis, esq. (Foster). His father was Member of 

Assembly 171S, 1724, and 1730-1. AVilliam appears to have married. 25 January 

1749, Lucretia, dau. of Mrs. Anne Newth of llunsdon, co. Herts, widow, deceased. 

(" G.M.") Lucretia was named 1743 in the will of her uncle Tobias AVall, 

formerly of Nevis and St. Kitts, then of Southampton. She died in childbed 

11 :May 1750, aged 28. (See A^ol. I., 1S2.) AVilliam was residing at liougham 

Hall, near Biirv St. Edmunds, Suffolk, in 1756. He was afterwards named as of 

Eccles, CO. Norfolk, in wills of 17G7, 1771, 17S1. and 1792, and his natural son 

John was named in 1767. His cousin William, the M.P. and Governor, was also 

residing in Norfidk, and some confusion between the two men has arisen on 

account of their Christian names being the same.

An e.xcellent tabular pedigree of eleven generations of this family has just 
been privately jfrinted. Martin Mndan f^etrled in ^N'evi.s about 1G87, and married 
Penelope, third dau. and coheiivss of Col. >Sir Jame« Eusscll, the Lieut. -Cxovcrnor. 
It has now been proved th;it ^Martin's "reat-grandt'ather was Richard, the Mayor 
of Waterford in 1.309. One of .Martin's grandsons was Spencer Madan, the well- 
known Bishop of Peterborough, and his descendants are now numerous. 


Benjamin Lucas (circa 1750 — 1S22) was President of Dominica, and Nathaniel 
Lucas, his contemporary (Charles Kingslcy's grandfather), Judge of Barbadoes. 
They were related (perhaps brothers) and belonged to the well-known family of 
St. John's, Colchester. 

Can anyone help me to connect them either with the Lucases of Antigua or 
those of Mount Lucas, Phillipstown, King's County, Ireland? Nathaniel Lucas, 
who died at St. John's, Antigua, 1753, may possibly have been their father.

Authorities from which tliis Pedigree is conipilcd are as follows: "Notices 
Genealogiques de Geneve par Galliffc" in British ]Museuiii ; a grant of arms to 
J. P. Bertrand alias J. P. D'Anpleberne, 1S20. Heralds' College, London ; 
information from W. W.- Bertrand, Esq., of Woj Cove, West Falkland Islands, 
and the Registrar of Dominica ; also a small pedigree supplied by IMr. J. Platel 
of Newcastle, which completes the identity of the Charles Bertrand of Galliffe 
with the Charles Bertrand of Dominica and father of Harriott D'Angleberne 

The Bertrand family, originally from Montpellier, emigrated to Genera. 
Antoine Bertrand with his two sons becoming burghers in 170-1, and the cause of 
their emigration being presumably the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, 1G^5. | 

The family appear to have been considered " Noble," and tliey intermarried with 
the best Genevan families. Pierre Bertrand, the first of the line, miut have been 
born about 1G20. The Bertrand arms are probably of Prcnch origin, as they bear 
a great similarity to several other Prench coats, notably that of Eomilly. They 
are : Argent, on a field Vert a hull Salle, collared and helled Cr, vpon a chief 
Azure a crescent heticcen two estoiles of the first. Ceest. — A crescent super- 
imposed upon three plvmes argent. 

Antoine Bertrand, fourth of the liiie, acquired about 1770 large estates in 
Dominica, which were chiefly in the parishes of St. Patrick and St. David, and 
adjoining the Eiver "VVayauery. One of these estates was called " Geneva." 

He appears to liave had a brother Charles, who, when his own sons Charles 
and Antoine (?) died without issue, adopted John Peter D'Angleberne, a refugee 
Prench officer from Martinique, who married his daughter Harriet and assumed 
the name of Bertrand (1S20). The story goes that he had to fly from Martinique, 
having killed a soldier who had insulted his wife. He possessed or inherited the 
estates Taberie, Carse o'Gowry, and Pelicitce Hall. 

Edmund Kufus Bertraud, his son. married an English lady of good family, and 
had a large family, most of whom, however, died s.p. The estates were iiually 
inherited by jNIr. William "Wickham Bertrand, who had acquired estates in the 
Falkland Islands. On inheriting and finding that the estates were not only 
heavily encumbered, but that the family mansion had been burnt in a hurricane, 
which had also much damaged the estate, he allowed it to be sold, under tlio 
Encumbered Estates Act, to Henri St. Hilaire, and they are now o\\ued by a 
family of the name of Potter. In the English grant of arms, either by accident 
or design, the btill is changed to a ram, and the lielmet surmounting the 
escutcheon is that of a baron, i.e., full faced with golden bars. Any information 
as to the places named or to the family in general other than the above will be 
most acceptable, more especially — 

(1) Any details as to the life and antecedents of J. P. D'Angleberne. 

(2) Any dates of births and deaths not given in pedigree. 

(3) Existence of any direct or collateral descendants of any of the persons

Although no connection has yet been established between the Washingtons 
of Barbados and the Washingtons of Virginia, it may be well to place on record 
such information as is attainable respecting the Barbadian family, who held a good 
position in that Island. 

In the October Number of the "Register of the New England Historic 
Genealogical Society " (Boston, Mass) was printed a letter from Theodore Pargltor 
of London, dated 2 August 1651, in which tlie writer refers to Jolin AVashington 
of Barbados as his cousin. This John Washington has not, so far as one knows, 
been properly identiliel, and Mr. AVaters makes scant reference to his existence 
on p. 32, and in a footnote thereto, in the " Ancestr)' of Washington," published 
at Boston, U.S.A., in 1889. At the same time it is to be noted th;it at the date 
of John Washington's presence in Barbaio.-^, families mentioned in the " Ancestry" 
as connections of the Virginia family were living in the l.slaiid and doing business 
with it from London. There were Pargtters (pp. 25, 31, 32, 43), Rumballs (32, 
33), and Tyrrells (42). The notable family of Codringtou conno.-ted with 
the Washingtons, through the Guises of the Baronetage. The tirst Virginian 
settler married a Pope, and there was a family of Pop3 in Barbados, lu each 

• C!oinmunicated by Mr. N. Darnoll Davis. 



case the Popes were of Bristol. In 1633 a Pliilippata Curtis died in Guiana, 
who was probably of the family of Philip Curtis of Islip, near Banbury, wliose 
daughter married Sir John "Waihin^ton (t^ce Cominission, 9 Dec. 1G33, to Kogcr 
North, a Creditor of Philip Curtis, late in Amazonia, in parts, deceajed, at 
Somerset House). 

It may have been from a traditional interest of their family in Barbados that 
Lawrence and George Washington visited the I.-^hiud in November and ])ecember 
1751, rather than Jamaica or some other Island of the Caribbeans, when they 
sought a change of climate for the elder brother, then a dying man. Lawrence, 
it must be remembered, had also served in the West Indies as a British Naval 
OfEcer, under Admiral Vernon, in whose honour he had named his grant of land 
Mount Vernon. 

Subjoined are some extracts from the Records of Barbados, made by 
Mr. Sinckler and another, to whom access has been readily granted by Mr. Lindsay 
Haynes, the Registrar of the Colony, in whose keeping the old documents have 
loving care.

Capt. Samuel Payne uas living at St. Kitts in or before 1656. (Egerton MS. 
2395, Brit. IMuseum") 

Capt. Philip Payne signed a petition of the planters of St. Kitts in January 
1659. In 16G9 he was one of the Commissioners appointed to receive back the 
English quarter of the Island. In 1673 it was reported that liis estate and that 
of Capt. Sam. Payne had been devastated by the French since the declaration of 
peace. In 16S3 and IGSG Lieut. Abraham Pavne was a Member of the Assembly. 
In 1707-8 Stephen Payne, Esq., aged 47, was entered in the census, and in 1711 
styled " Colonel,'' and of the parish of St. Thomas. This Stephen's parentage is 
unknown, but he was probably son or grandson of either the above Philip or 
Samuel. His wife's name is also unknown, but he had several sons, of whom the 
second, Charles, was created a baronet in 1737. The Paynes are supposed to have 
come from Lavington in AVilts, Dorset, or Jersey. (Sec vol. iii. of "Antigua.")

The arms on this, as noted in 1S79 by Mr. N. D. Davis, were: .... iper

Lambert was appoiiited in 1707 Lieut. -Governor of St. Kitts. His will was 
dated 1 March 1723 and recorded in the Island. He owned several estates, which 
apparently passed to his widow Priscilla, who was livins; in 1753, when she 
owned three plantations in St. Thomas, Middle Island. He also possessed the 
"New Invention" of 106 acres in the French quarter and the "College" of 
200 acres. He left no sons, but three daughters and coheiresses : — 

I. Susannah, married first Major Kich. Holmes, ^Tember of Council of 
St. Kitts, who died in London in 1725 (will proved 13 October),* by whom she 
had Rich., Priscilla, and ^Eartha. She married secondly John Douglas, Esq., of 
St. Kitts, whose will was proved 171S (359, Strahan), and had an eldest son and 
heir, John St. Leger Douglas. She died at Eickmansworlh, Herts. Will dated 
1750 (323, Greenly). 

II. Margaret, married Col. James "Weatherill of Antigua, and had two sons, 
Lambert AVeatherill and Clius. Pym Weatherill, besides others. (See pedigree in 
" Antigua," vol. iii.) 

III. Frances, the youngest, married Col. Chas. Pym of St. Kitts, ]Member of 
Council. "Will proved 17-11 (132, Spurway). They had Priscilla, only dau. and 
heiress, who married, S June 1712, luibert, 2nd Lord l\omney. Lady liomney's will 
was dated 174G and proved 1771 (12G, Trevor), and she died 2G "February 1771. 
In 1753 Lord Komney owned " Pym's Bay " estate in St. George's, Easseterre, 
and his wife had one-third of a plantation in St. Thomas, Middle Island, formerly 
that of her grandfather Michael Lambert. 

Here lyeth the bodies of Colonel Stephen Payne, who departed this life the 
10"* day of September 1711, in the 51^' year of his age. 

And also of his sons Stei'IIEX and Samuel Payne, who departed this life in 
the 7'^ and 10"' years of their age. 

Here lyeth interr'd the body of Joiix Hei.den, son of John Helden of this 
island, E3q% who departed this life the 7''' of June 1722, aged 2 years, 2 mouths, 
and 19 days. 

• My note says P.C.C, but I have not yet found the will.— Editob. 

The following inscriptions were copied in 1879 by Mr. N. Darnell Davis. 
The Pector writes, 8 June 1911: ''A\''e can find nothing of the stones to John 
Helden, Mrs. Susanna Phipps, Archibald Esdaile, or Col. Stephen Payne. The 
stones to Capt. Sam. .Jefferson and Dr. Johu Hutchinson are in good condition. 
There is an estate called Hutchinsous in the parish." I wonder who was 
responsible for the destruction of the above memorials to the dead ? 

Here lieth the body of Cap' Sajiuel Jeffeesox, who deceased the 12"" day of 
December Anno Dom. 1G49. 

I think this must be the second oldest tomb in the Island. Sir Tho. Warner's 
being dated IGIS. John Jeaft'ri'son, a ^Lister Manner from Pettistrce in Suffolk, 
arrived at St. Kitts iu 1G21 in the ship " Hopewell," which he commanded. In 
1G25, when A\''arner obtained the King's commission, Jeaffresou's name was 
inserted as iiis Lieutenant. Capt. Samuel Jeaffresou, a brother of John, settled 
the "Red House Plantation," and left, with other issue, a son Samuel, who 
removed about 1GG9 to Antigua, and whose son, also Samuel, was in 1G7S Member 
of Council for St. Kitts. Very little is known of this branch. (" Antigua," ii., 
lOG.) John's descendants or heirs were seated at Dullingham House, Cam- 

M" Sl'sanxa Piiipps, 1GS6. See Vol. I., p. 75, for this. 


In Egliam Churchyard, Surrey, is a stone (without dates) to his parents, 
whose dau. and sole heiress ^Nlary married Tho. Toster of Jamaica, M.P. Joliu 
Helden had been a Member of Council and Collector of the Customs, and died

Susannah Mathew Pliipps, dau. of Erancis Phipps, married after 1762 .... 
Esdaile, and was living a widow in LS07. 

Dr. Ealph Adve of St. Kitts married a Miss Esdaile, and in his letter of 
4 September 1799 alludes to the death of his wife's brother, the Comptroller of 
the Customs there, who died on the 1st iust.

CONFISCATED IN 1651—1654. 
[EuERTON MS. 2395, Fo. 54.] 

Pursuant to the Act of Parliament of 1650,* confiscating the i)ropcrty of all 
aliens trading or residing in the W.I., Sir George Ayscue, on his arrival with the 
fleet at Barbados in 1051-2, seized all tlie Dutch shipping there trading without 

Later, in 105 1-, the Prize Commissioners, who arrived with the fleet under 
Peiin and Yenables, appear to have taken possession of all storehouses belonging 
to Dutch merchants, as well as of their goods, book debts, and other assets. 

• J have a copy of this Act, black letter, seven small folios. [Editor.] 


Mr. Edward "Wi'dsIow wrote to Secreta'-y TLurloe from Barl)ado9 10 INfarch 
1654 : " Toil told us of a great parcell of sugar Avas ready for our use, which was 
due upon the prizes taken by sir Geo. Ascue, we found not a penny in readyness, 
but abroade in such hands, as were not well affected for nothing ; having had the 
use of large sums for these three veares, and upon tliat foundation raised fine 
estates." (Thurloe's " State Papers!") 

The following prize accounts relating to tliese transactions are bound up in 
a large Tolume of Colonial IState Papers, which formerly belonged to Thomas 
Povey, purchased by the trustees of the British Museum at Sotheby's in 1S75 
(now Egerton MS. 2395). 

The lists are invaluable, as they give the names of most of the more important 
settlers during a period when so few similar records exist. The first census of 
the Leeward Islands was not made until 1G78, some twenty-five years later.

During a recent visit to Bath tliis year (1911), the opportunity arose of 
makinp; a more careful study of the inscriptions in the Abbey Church. It ap])oar8 
that when Sir Gilbert Scott restored tlie biiildinfi;, bet-\veen 18(10 and 1S70, all the 
monuments were taken down and rearranged : all superfluous portions removed, 
only the coats of arms and inscriptions being retained : and the tablets were then 
refixed. The old pews were subsequently removed and the flooring taken up, 
thus exposing mauy slabs previously lost to sight. In the year 1872 the then 
clerk, Charles P. Eusscll, carefully copied the S4-7 floor inscriptions and tricked 
the coats of arms. IMost of these were again hidden when the new pews were 
fixed, but the list of them is carefully preserved, and from it I have copied several 
additional inscriptions. 

When the floor-slabs give no additional information, other than that on the 
wall tablets, I have omitted such inscriptions. The numbers refer to the Abbey 
List. " B.C." is for " Bath Chronicle." 

North aisle, north -wall, opposite the fourth bay : — 

Sacred to the Memory of 

ELIZABETH, relict of the above 


AVho, after a life spent in

who in the bloom of youth 

after a long illuels 

which she bore without a murmur,

The M.I. to Mathew Munro has been already given (I., 7G). His tablet, now 
in the south aisle, was no doubt separated from the above during the restoration. 
In the floor of nave is a slab with all three names on it, which gives the daughter's, 
age as 18.

Each Parish has its own Records of Births, Marriages, and Deaths, ancient 
and modern. Under the registration system introduced in the last century, 
transcripts of the modern registers are regularly sent to the Registration Ollice. 

Besides the old registers kept in each parish there are books iu the Regis- 
tration Office, Bridgetown, containing copies of the entries in the old registers of 
the parishes. At what period this was carried out I cannot say, but I am under 
the impression that it was done before some of the parish registers perislied. 
Even as it is, there are gaps in most of these entries, in some cases for consider- 
able periods. 

The following are the years from which the earliest entries date, iu the 
registers preserved iu the Registration Office at Bridgetown : —

(Extract from an article on the Milwards of Old Swinford, co. Worcester.) 
A prandson of the Tho. Milward of the Civil AVar time, a John Milward, D.D., 
of Oxford, obtained the livino; of St. Thomas, Middle Island, and a sugar estate 
called " Godwins," to which Island he emigrated with Mr. Harry Freeman, 
a Creole (Freeman of Farley Court, Bucks), whose sister he married ("• Herald 
and Genealogist," i.). He matriculated from Pembroke Hall, Oxford, 24 March 
1G70-1, aged IG, as son of Tlio. Milward of Wolleseote, co. Wore. (Foster.) 

1G77, Nov. 1. The Bishop of L. has selected G priests who are embarking. 
Mr. Milward. (Col. Cal., 174.) 

1678, Jan. 24. Gov. Stapleton writes that he has presented Mr. Milward to 
St. Chr. (Col. Cal., 212). He married a dau. of Col. Wm. Freeman of 
St. Christopher, one of the very early settlers. He was buried in the east 
cloister of Westminster Abbev 14 April 1703. AVill dated 3 April and proved 
29 April 1703 (Chester). 

George Milward inherited an estate in St. Christopher in 1707. 

There is a letter from Wni. Freeman at St. Ivitts, dated 19 Jan. 1GS2-3, saying 
that his younger brother Henry had lately come from France, and there is 
a petition of the latter stating he was now of age. It is probable that John 
Milward had been his tutor, as Heury was only 17 in 1G78, the year they arrived 
at St. Kitts. 

1 Eev. John Merac went out 16 Feb. 1727-S (Fothergill). He was LL.B. 
Cant., and wrote, 13 Feb. 1730-31, from St. Christopher: " Three years ago I was 
presented to the rectory of St. Thii., Middle Island, and now have a parish in the 
French grounds " (Fulliam Palace Records). 

- Rev. Robert Pemberton. On referring to Vol. I., 268, it will be noticed 
that he was Rector of St. James', Nevis, 1787 — 95, then of St. George, St. Kitts, 
1795, till his death 1812. 

3 Rev. John Audain. See ante, I., 223, for a letter of his, dated 16 Oct. 1S02 
at Roseau, Dominica, he being then Rector of Roseau and St. George's and 
senior J. P. 

1825, Oct. 1. At St. Eustatius, the Eev. John Audain. (St. Chr. .\lmanac.) 

* Rev. Joseph Warner. Perhaps identical with the son of Daniel Warner, 
Treasurer of Antigua, baptized 23 Nov. 1758 at St. John's and living 1788, 
who died a bachelor. 

• The Rector writes 20 June 1910: "Wo have no printed Reeisters, and the old ones we 
have are in a b:iJ st.-ite. I ;iin pottinir thoin tnin.scribcd into another book. I am scndincr a \'\<\. 
of the Rectors since 1700, beim: tbo only list I know of."' The Kditor lias inserted the name of 
John Milward and added tlie notes. This lint should have appeared on p. 208, but w;is mislaid. 


5 Edward Brazier, son of Edward Brazier of St. Christoplicr's, AV.T., Esq., 
matriculated from AVadham College, Oxford, 22 Mav 1792, ajred 18 ; B.A. 179U, 
M.A. 1800. (Foster.) 

* Joseph Plura Bartruni, son of Thomas Bartrum of Exeter, Devon, gent., 
matriculated from St. Edmund Hall, Oxford, 20 May ISKi, aged 35. (Foster.) 

7 A Henry A\'arneford was Minister of Aii-^uilla" (Cler;,'y List of 1S7().) 

^ Rev. Henry Jeremiah Dyson, second son of the lU-v. Francis Dvson of 
Tedworth, Hants, matriculated from Alerton Collciie, Oxford, 3 March 1842, 
aged 18, B.A. 18-l.j ; Fellow of All Souls' College 1847—52, M.A. 1850, Vicar of 
Barking, Essex, 1851 until his death 27 IMarch 1854. (Foster.) I think he must 
have gone out to St. Kitts on account of his health. 

1854, ]\Iarch 27. At St. Kitts. the Kev. Henrv Jeremiah Dvson, Vicar of 
Barking, Essex (1851). He ^vas of All Souls' College, Oxford, B'.A. 1845, M.A. 
185.0. His wife Matilda died on the preceding day. (" G.M.," 6G3.) 

^ Rev. Darius Davey. In Clifton Churchyard is a M.I. to the family of 
Darius Davey and Eliza his wife of Antigua. These were no douht the parents 
of the above. He was also Curate of St. John's, Antigua, 1844-5, and Rector of 
St. Philip's 18G5-6. I don't know where he was 1845 — 55.

Notes by Mks. E. J. Eam, April 1876. 

My fjreat-grandfather Stephen Adyc married Chira Payne, who was cousin to 
Kalph AVillett. They had S cliildren— Stephen Tayne, John AVillett, Abraham, 
Ealph, Clara, Polly, Patty (died in London 1^20), and ? ^Liry. 

Abraham had one dan. Eliza Adye. who was educated at Blackheath and being 
sent out passed her Parents on the voyage. I think he was a Physician and 
Ealph Attorney-General at Grenada.* 

Uncle Willett married Brouucker. Besides tiieir 2 sons they had a 
daughter who died early. I think her name was Anna. He afterwards married 
a Miss AVilsou. 

The other Miss Brouncker married the Hon. Capt. Finch of the Navy. She 
was the particular friend of Auut Vivion, and lived at Broom Hall, Shooters Hill. 

S' Christophers, July 30"', 1795. 

My Dear Brother, 

I wrote to you in May last in consequence of the very melancholy event 
which you had announced to my mother .... our late worthy and respected 
kinsman and benefactor, " you who liave been the child of his adoption from 
your infancy." Our poor sister's death. Our debts of £800 .... the legacy 
left my mother .... the additional allowance you make her .... your donation 
for mourning. 

I am encamped out of Town with the Militia. We have been for upwards of 
twelve months past under great Apprehension of being attacked by the French, 
and our fears have been much encrcased since the Enemy has been in ])ossession 
of S* Eustatius, which is devided from the Island only by a narrow Channel of 
about three leagues breadth, across which they may easily invade us in Boats. 
In consequence of this, Detachments of the Militia are encamped near the Coast, 
opposite to S' Eustatius and in other Places ; A Corps of Negroes has been 
embodied and are training to Arin^, and every precaution taken to prevent them 
landing, for if .they once affect that an inconceivable Deal of Miscliief must ensue; 
and the Colony be ruined alihough they n)ay not acquire the Sovereignty of it. 
AVe have very few regular Troops here, not enough to defend even the fortress of 
Brimstone Hill without the Aid of some Militia. This last Body therefore have 
and still continue to undergo very fatiguing Duty, and as it consists of overy 
Male Inhabitant of the island, Occupations of all Kinds are practically suspended, 
and every man's Iiiterest must of course be much impaired. It has been 
productive of miu-h expence and Inconvenience to me as well as others; however, 
the necessity of the Case must be submitted to; and if we are finally successful! 
in preserving the Island our privaie sufferings will sit lightly upon us. 

Our new General! arrived here a few days ago. and seems determined to use 
every exertion for the Defence of the Island, and we j)lace great Contidenco in the 
Fame of his professional Abilities, a military governor in times like this is certainly 
preferable to any other, let liis Character be high as can be in other Kespects.

call upon you — T owe you alass more than 1 can ever hope to repay, but if you 
allow me that Liberty 1 should wish to appropriate it to the discharge of some 
Debts in England, which though they may be of too longstanding to be recoverable 
by law, have for that reason a stronger claim upon my feelings. 1 have however 
taken the liberty of enclosing you a memorandum of a few professional Books 
which will engross but a small part of" it, and if when conxenient you will take 
the trouble of ordering them out to me I shall be infinately obliged. Hooks 
I cannot do without, and I have long lamented my Inability to send regularly 
for them. 

You have said nothing in your letter of our ])oor Brother Stephen's! family, 
if any of them are near you pray be kind enough to say everything Affectionate 
to them for all here. I should be Happy to have some Account of them. Adieu

My dear Stephen, 

I know I deserve to be thought a very idle fellow for not having written 
to you before, but will now try and make amends for my long neglect. 

I shall tell you first of my own aifairs and my father's. You know when you 
left England he was about to put his affairs in the hands of trustees, which has 
been done, and he is living upon a £10U0 a year till all the debts are paid. Poor 
Merly looks very miserable — the pictures and books are all gone, the former did 
not sell owing to the great scarcity of ready money at that time, indeed we bought 
in many of them, so tliat the amount of what were sold came to little more 
than £7000. 

The Books sold remarkably well — the whole of them came to £13,-jS0 — some 
of the specimens of early print such as Caxton's Bible and the other books of that 
date went, some of them, for two and three hundred guineas each, yet with 
all these sales I am afraid it will be a long time before the debt to the Trust, 
which is very large, will be paid off. 

My father, I am happy to say, has hitherto kept his health and spirits as well 
as could be expected under such an accumulation of misfortunes. With regard 
to myself, I am living as economically as I can and am studying the Law. 
I intend putting on the gown and wig in about two months and go the western 

[The above is from a copy in the late Sir John Adye's notebook. The back of 
the letter with the address was missing. The writer was probably Henry Ealph 
VVillett, born 1786, M.A. Oxford and of Lincoln's Inn, 2nd sou of John Willett 
Adye (later Willett), the then owner of Merly. " Stephen" was Stephen Payne 
Gallwey, a first-cousin. I do not know what misfortunes had overtaken the 
family apart from the depreciation of W.I. property. The sale of Kalph Willett's 
library, etc., occupied seventeen days in December 1818, so the above letter was 
probably written early in 18 ii. The father did not long sui'vive, but died in 
1815 at Bath. — Editoe.]

Dear Henry, 

I am sure you will be much concerned to receive bad news of my poor 
brother John; he was seized with an apoplectic fit on Monday last in the Street 
at Fareham and expired shortly after. 

His Brother in law Colonel Bradley wrote to Vivian and mentioned that the 
presence of any of our family would be extremely acceptable. 

The funeral is to take place Saturday, as it cannot be deferred longer. I have 
taken my place for Fareham, and shall set out to-morrow morning. 

AVe have heard from Stephen in his own handwriting ; he, however, mends 
but slowly.

To the ahove interesting article by Miss Nembhard the Editor adds the ^ j 

following supplementary notes :— ",* 

The said five English Eegiments were subsequently raised in the W.I. to 
about 1000 men each. A sixth regiment of Barbadians was commanded by Col. 
Edward Doyley, a seventh of Leeward Islands men by Col. Eiciiard Iloldip, and 
an eighth under Col. John Huinfrey arrived from England the end of 1G55 as a » 

reinforcement. The seventh regiment was soon after disbanded. 

In a petition of 1(500 Capt. Gregory Butler, one of the Commissioners under 
Venables, stated that he lost his brother the Adjutant- General and six servants, 
and disbursed £1200 (Thurloe, vii., 912). 

Col. John Humfrey's Eegiment. 

1655, Sept. C. Major-General Eobert Sedgwick writes from Barbados that he i 

sailed from Plymouth on 11 July with a regiment of SOO men drawn out of the . 

old regiments in England, with eight ships of war, and arrived at Barbados on • 

27 Aug. Capt. H. Maddison on board the Gift was sent on 7 Sept. to S' Chris- | 

topher to get recruits with Joshua Wilson on board the Mar ma duke (W.I. | 

Cal., 96, 97). I 

Ou 14 Nov. he wrote that he arrived on 1 Oct. at Jamaica. Thirty men died '^ 

of the flux, including Capt. Eenn of the Wildeman and Capt. ^Maddison of the I 

Oift, who died at Barbados. Major-General Portescue died about 20 Oct. and 1 

many ofhcers are dead. There had been 700 deaths, also 50 of the new soldiers. \ 

Encloses list of men, women, and children in the Generals, Major-GeneraJs, Col. \ 

Carters, Col. Bullers, Col. Doyles, Col. Holdippes, and Col. Humpheres regiments, \ 

219-1 well, 2316 sick, 172 women and children {lb., p. 105). Col. Portescue's 1 

regiment is not referred to. Doyley had reduced each regiment bv two com- J 

panics and disbanded the Leeward Islands one (Bridge, i., 217). " "W'ith Sedge- | 

wick went Col. Humfrevs, the Son of him who carry'd the Sword before I 

President Bradshaw at the King's Trial." He returned to England (Oldmixon's | 

"British Empire in America," ii., 271, 273). Col. H. was named 11 Mav 1658 ' 
(W.I. Cat, p. 472). He returned to England and fought in Flanders (Thurloe). 
See ante, p. 54, for the will of Gilbert Bury, soldier in Capt. Sedgwick's company 
in the above regiment.

The Parlcer family in four freiierations supplied no less than fire admirals, all 
noted men. Christopher died a in 17G5, very aged. His sou Peter, 
an "Irishman," was a Captain in 1747, aiid in 17-37, in command of the 
""Woolwich," went out lo the ^V.I. with Commodore John Moore,* Commander- 
in-Chief at the Leeward islands. 

In 1759 he took part in the abortive attack on Martinique and reduction of 
Guadaloupc,t returning in 17G0 to England. 

He married about 1759 ^Margaret, daughter of AValter Xugent, Esq., of 
"Nugents" in xVntigua, who had died the previous year, leaving her a portion of 
£2000. Parker was knighted in 1772, and served as Commander-in-Chief at 
Jamaica 1777 — S2, receiving on his return a baronetcy. He eventually became 
Admiral of the Fleet in 1799, and died in Weymouth Street 21 Decem.ber 1811 
at the advanced age of 90. His portrait by Abbot is at Greenwich. 

His two daughters both married AVest India]\s (only one is mentioned in the 
"D.N.E."). Anne, born 3 May 1773, married, 10 September l&OO, George 
Ellis of Jamaica, M.P., and died in 1S62 in her 90th year. Antoinette married 
1795 John Ellis, cousin of George, and died in 1S29. 

Sir Peter Parker, 2nd Bart, (grandson of tiie 1st Bart), in 1814 sold Nugents 
plantation to Chr. Codrington, after repayment of £SU00 his grandfather had 
lent on mortgage. ;|: He was killed in action at Baltimore the same year, aged 28, 
being then a Post Captain. 

He was evidently first buried at Bermuda, as appears by the following entry 
from the parish register of St. George :§ " 1815, April 2. Memorandum. This 
day the body of Sir Peter Parker was taken ui^ at the request of Captain Edmund 
Palmer, E.N., one of his Executors, to be conveyed to England in the Hebrus 
frigate." The reinterment took place in St. Margaret's, Westminster. The 
baronetcy became extinct in 18G9.

Robert Barwicke of the Town and County of Southampton, yeoman, but at 
present resident in the ship The Plough of London, bound for England, 23 Sept. 
4 Charles, 162S. To my wife Margaret, living in Southampton, the 30' I left 
with her, the 30' due as her fortune from her mother .... Cheason, a widow, 
living in the said town, and 30' when my goods are sold. If she have a son 200', 
if a dau. 100'. If either die then the legacy to be divided, and 1 give f to my 
brother William B. and my sister Jane B., and \ to my brother Daniell 15. 40' 
out of the 200' " to be laid out in provisions to be sent to my brother Daniell B. 
and my manservant at Saint Christophers." To the poor of Newport, I. of W., 
5' and of All Hallows, Southampton, 40s. My father Emanuell B. 10'. My 
mother Joyce B. 10'. To the three children of my sister Barnell Puckford 15'. 

" Item forasmuch as the worshippfuU my verie loving blaster Captaine Thomas 
AVarner hath been verie kind and loving unto me and hath benne the cause b\' 
whom I have gotten my estate in testimonie therefore of my thankfullness 
although I am not able to requite him, 1 do give and bequeath unto him one 
Beaver hatt of the best kind which I humbiie intrcat hiin to weare for my sake to 
be given unto him within one moneth next after iiis arrival in England." 

To my kind mistress M''^ Pcbccca Warner, wief to the said Capt. Tho. W., one 
beaver hat of 5' after her arrival in England. To my well beloved friend iNP John 
ffeatle}'. Minister and Preacher, now aboard the good shipp Plough, 5' after his 
arrival. My friend Chr. Havers 50s. John Underwood oUs. \Vm. Snellgrove, 
chirurgcon, of tiie Plough, 40 lbs. of tobacco. To my Ex'or 50' to be deducted 
from the profit of t)ie labour of my servant liaph lieade, living upon the Isle of 
St. Christopher in the W. I. with my brother Daniell B., and the rest to b^ 



divided into equal parts, i to any child and ^ to my Ex'or and sister Jane B. 
My brother A\''m. B., living in the Burrough of Southworke by Loudon, shoo- 
maker, sole Ex'or. "Witnessed by John ifeatley, ffrancis Jeffrey, Kich. Burghes. 
Proved 26 Nov. 1G2S by W. B. (102, Barrington). 

In Egerton MS. 2395 is a copy of the Articles of Peace, dated 5 Sept. 
and 8 Nov. 1G28, which were signed on 8 Nov. by Capt. Edward "Warner, 
Governor of St. Christopher, and by George Molle and Godfrey Havercharepe, 
Esquires (the Commissioners appointed by the Earl of Carlile), and by Capt. 
Anthony Hylton, President of Mevis. Capt. Thos. "Warner apparently had \ 

deputed his son Edward to act as Governor in his place during his absence. | 

From Robert Barwicke's will it seems that Capt. Thos. Warner was still out in | 

the "W. I., possibly at some other island than St. Christopher. The " Plough " I 

of London was evidently returning to that port with several planters and a cargo -^ 

of tobacco. On p. 8 under the Featley Memoir nothing is said about the llev. j 

John Eeatley's return from St. Christopher in the " Plough," but there is a gap 
between 1625 and 1630. 

Communicated by Lieut.-Colouel H. "\V. Pook. 


Some ten years ago the Editor found among the ecclesiastical correspondence 
preserved in the muniment-room in Eulhaui Palace a transcript of a few years of 
the parish register of St. George's, Nevis. He made at the time a few extracts, I 

■which were printed in the " Histoi-y of Antigua," vol. iii. As the records for the 
North American and West Indian Colonies were unsorted and in great confusion 
no further search was then made by him. Major-General E. Pemberton, liowever, 
examined these same papers about 1903, and then found them all })roj)erly 
arranged, and fortunately made a copy of the transcript. The Editor last Octobei* 
went carefully twice through the box of papers relating to the Leeward Islands, 
but could discover no trace of any parish registers. How or why the paper has 
been removed it is impossible to say, and the Bishop of London's Secretary could 
throw no light on the loss. 

The Editor at once wrote to General Pemberton, with the gratifying result 
that the following copy of the transcript is now printed. The original parish 
register for the first quarter of the eighteenth century is no longer in existence, 
80 that the transcript is unique. 

All the entries were copied, but those relating to Pemberton were abstracted 
and placed separately. As these have been already printed in this Magazine, 
they have not been reinstated. 


In reply to your inquiry I do not find that we have any Transcripts from the 
Islands of St. Christopher and Nevis. The Registrar General has some Registers 
from St. Lucia 1S9S to 1905, Barbados and the "Windward and Leeward Islands 
ISOi to 1906.

The monument here to Sir James llussell, Knt., of Nevis has been fixed 
(probably during some so-called restoration) very high up above the first arch of 
the chancel facing the north aisle. 

With the help of a ladder I eiideavoured to decipher the inscription iu 1909, 
but owing to the insuHicieut length of the ladder, the dirty encrusted surlace of 
the stone, and bad light, was unsuccessful. 

The photograph was taken for me by flashlight, and gives one a good idea of 
the condition of the tablet. 

The inscription has been preserved in " Bristol Past and Present," ii., 44. 
In that book, however, it is not properly set out, so I have spaced the lines from 
the photograph as accurately as possible.

On the east wall of the chancel was formerly a tablet to Edward Buncombe of 
Montserrat, who died 11 Sep. 1712, aged 53. This was probably destroyed at the 
rebuilding of the church at the end of the eighteenth century. 

He had been Speaker of the Assembly. His son-in-law Col. John Molineux 
matriculated from Trinity College, Oxford, 20 Feb. 1700-1, aged IG, and was 
alive in 1727, and his eldest son John Davis Molineiix was also Speaker. The 
Molineux-]Montgomerie family is now of Garboldisham Manor in Norfolk.

In the Crypt I saw some twenty years ago several memorial ledger stones, but 
at the recent restoration these disapp,eared, and at my last visit in 1909 the iloor 
consisted of modern tiling. I noted a ledger here to 3Iungo Forbes of Jamaica, 
who died in 1S07, aged Gl. The Vicar writes, 22 ■May 1909, that when the crypt 
was restored there appears to have been no inscription to him remaining, but 
a careful record of all existing inscriptions was made.

This -work, now in the British Museum (Sloan :MS. 391S), consists of 140 
small folio pap;es. The contents did not !i|,pear to me to contain much original 
matter. On the first paqc is the following hcadin"-: — 

" A most Correct, and partieii|;ir Account of th . . . .* 
Island of Jamaica, Prom the Time of th . . . .* 
Spaniards first discovering .nul settlin"- . . . .* 
it. Together AVitli a full and succinct Account of the present 
Government of it ; as also, of all the Generals, 
and Governours in Chief thai have been appoin 
ted to preside over the said Inland, and all the other 
Territories thereon dependinjr, \n America, &c. 
Wrote bv Hen. Barham Sen'' F.E.S." 

The history is carried down to the year 172'' 

Dr. Barham died soon after in 


This volume, now in the British ]Museum (Add. MS. 27,96S), contains various 
letters, pedigrees, and extracts from parish re^^isters and wills relating to Jamaican 
families. The correspondence was mostly addressed to Charles Edward Long, 
a well-known AVest-Indian genealogist. The collection then apparently passed 
into the hands of Captain J. H. Lawrence Archer, author of "AV.I. iNlonumental 
Inscriptions," and the [Museum Trustees purdiased ii from him on 13 Feb. 1869. 

Most of the numerous extracts from parish registers were made about 
1830—35 by the late John Eoby, author of |],e rare Histories of the i)arishes of 
St. Catherine and St. Jauies (see ante I., 335), and were sent to C. E Long, then 
in Londou. Among the families noted are tlio following : —

This officer was second son of Col. Alexander Cosby, Lieut. -Governor of 
Nova Scotia, where he died 2G Dec. 1743, by Anne, dau. of Alexander Winnard 
of Annapolis. Alexander's yonnge!' brother, Col. William Cosby, was Governor 
of New York from 1732 till his death 10 March 173G. They were sons of 
Alexander Cosby of Stradbally in Queen's County, who died in 1C9-1'. The 
Admiral married in August 1792 Eliza, dau. of William Gunthorpe of .\ntigua, 
by whom he left no is.suo. He succeeded to the Stradbally estate on the deatli of 
his coub^in Lord Sydney (Burke's "Landed Gentry"). The " G.M.," p. 92, 
records his death : "1S08, Jan. 10. In Alfred-street, Bath, aged SO, Philip Ccsby, 
esq. Admiral of the l^ed. lie was at the Rooms the preceding evening and 
played at Whist." On his tablet in the south transept of the Abbey his age is 
given as 77 ("Antigua," ii., 2-13). The Burial Ivcgister.has : " ISOS, Jan. IG. 
Admiral Phili]) Cosby" (" Genealogist," vi., 181). His aunt Elizabeth married 
Lieut. -General Eichard Phillips, Governor of Nova Scotia, probably his godfather.

This letter evidently relates to " Guntlu)r])os " and "Payntcrs," tv\ o adjoining 
estates in Antiijna, owned by William Gunthorpe, who was at the time; resident 
in London ("Antigua," ii., 89). The n])])raiscment on entering upon a lease, 
and roapprnisement on giving it up, any losses being paid by the tenant and any 
improvements by the landlord, was a very equitable arrangement. 

De la Court "Walsh, the letter writer, had been a Captain in the SSth Eegimenr, 
and married two ^Yivcs in Antigua, dying in 17S1 at Ivichmond, Surrey. In l;is 
will he names no family, but mentions Eobert De La Court, Sen., Esq., of Ireland, 
and .Eobert's eldest son Walsh De La Court. (Ibid., ii., 5.) 

Edward AVarncr and liis brother-in-law John Johnson were merchants and 
partners in London, both holding much ])ro]ierty in Antigua. James Scott, Esq., 
left the Island in 17G0-L There was a firm of Ledwell aud Scott about 17S0. 

Antigua IS"' Sep^ 1772. 

Dear Sir 

The 31'' of last month we had the most violent Hurricane ever knov.n ; 
very few Estates, if any, but what have felt the efftcts of it, many of them quite 
destroyed, several white people kill'd ct a number of Xegroes. The King's Ships 
in English Harbor dismasted, & many A'clsels lost. AVo are in sad distrefs for 
want of Xegro provision, what little Corn we have sells at 15/- a bushel. 
S' Christophers has suffer'd as much if not more, & the other Islands, very 

AA'"e lost part of our Dwelling house, our defining house blown down & twenty 
Hhds. of Sugar destroyed, however we shall recover part of it. which must be 
manufactured anew, our Rum house down, & the South side of the Curing 
house. Boiling house strip'd. Sick house i.t Coopers Shop down. Trash house, Stock 
house, Coach house A Stables down, a large new Dove house quite gone, & our 
Store house strip'd. The house in Town which was compleatcd with glals sashes 
new painted & a handsom stone wall, very much shatter'd & the wall down — 
little or no Lumber to be had. Brovision extreme dear. &, little of that. Our 
Canes v,hi])'d to shreds & a great part of them broke short off ; we have not 
suffer'd much that way, A 1 hope, if we have good weather, to make a tolerable 
Crop. The new stone building, containint,' the Olliccs, stood it very well it was 
of great service. AVe lost only one Ncl;io. Af Otto had four kill'd upon the 
spot. The Jiarrncks & JL)s])ital terribly shatter'd it the Gallery down. The 
streiigth of the Winds is incredible, they seemed to contend ..t battle together. 



Thank God we are all well. Sc join in love &. compliment to you and our 
Friends; all the Family are here at prosent. and talk of cooing home next year. 
If I find niy.'^clf well. I will endeavour to jiut it cff a vf ur Ioniser. 

I fear we shall have bloody work at .S' Vincents. Six Companies of our 
Regiment arc gone thither. 

I wish you health and am truly Dear Sir 

Your most obedient humble servant

Governor Sir Ealph Payne sent home a long letter describing the effects of 
this hurricane. The Court House was blown in, the Hospital at English Harbour 
levelled, the flagship and two frigates driven ashore, and the Govei'uor's new 
study and papers blown away. Montserriit suffered £G0,000 damage, but 
St. Kitts much less. The King gave a donation of £2000 to Antigua towards 
the fund for repairing losses. The GSth Ku^iraent was to return to Europe the 
end of 1772. (" Antigua," i., cxxi.) Thos. Oliver was my great-great-grandfather 
and Michael Lovell was his first-cousin and partner; their counting-house was in

This Samtiell was the son of Bryan Firebraee, Merchant Tailor, of the City of 
London. His father went to Constantinople about lU-10, leaving his wife with 
two children, Samuel ar.d John, in London in poor circumstances. He died there 
intestate, administration being granted in London in May 1043 to Eobert 
Cheeringe, a creditor. Her son Samuel was baptized 9 March 1G31-5 at St. ■Mar- 
garet's, AVestmiiistcr. He died in Jamaica, unmarried, and administration of his 
effects was granted to his mother Jane Arpe (who appears to have married again) 
10 June 1057. He is therein described as " late at Jamaica in the States Service 
beyond sea, Batcheior." 

I have been trying for many years to ascertain iiow and when my ancestor 
John Firebrace, uncle of the above Samitel, reached Barbados. It is possible he 
went out in the s;nne expedition. He became a merchant and died in 1093. 
His will is in the Barbados Eecord OiBce.

These notes were taken by myself in Barbados in 190L Mehetabel Christian ^ 

Collier was my great-grandmother, and I am anxious to find out their earlier 
history, and whether they belonged to the Dorsetshire famil}-, as their arms 
lead one to suppose. The inscription was difhcult to read, and it may be that 
Jane Miller, whose register entry docs not tally with the tombstone, may have 
been daughter of Josepli and Elizabeth ALiUer, and not Collier. William and 
Ja7ie Collier of the tombstone seem to have been living at the same time as 
William and Mary Collier of the register. It is rather puzzling.

for three years in liarhuiia tliat the cislle was an ancient buccaneers' fori and that it was in 
need of reiiairs. I cainiot cnnlirm that, liicaiise there is no history of the Island, but it was 
evidently used by the ('mlrini,'tons, the leaseholders, as a place of defence, and its destruction is 
to be deidored — a vandalism on which strong comments were r.iado at the time in the W. Indian 
Committee Circular.

In Burke's " General Armoury " these arms are ascribed to Collyer of Dorset-
