The surplus population of St. Kitts spread over the adjacent islands of St. 
Croix and St. Bustatius or Si alia., and it is probable that these Plartmans of 
St. Croix were a branch of the. Llardtmans of St. Kitts, though the exact proof 
lias not been discovered. The family was undoubtedly of Huguenot origin. 
St. Croix being now American, the Editor wrote to the Registrar for information 
about the local records, but no reply has been received.

Islands on account of purchase of lands and slaves, charged his debts on his

He devised his Lower pi. (which he had power to devise) to a younger s. John, 
and gave Margt. another legacy of £500 c. at 17 out of his Lower pi., named his 
eldest s. Sam the Elder, Ex'or, and died in or before 1700 Sam. the Elder never

his father's creditors, but took tho Upper pi" under his grandfather* a intail, ami

This marble slab covers a stone vault in the old familj burial ground at 
Upper Freeman's plantation in the parish of St. Peter, Parham. 

The armorial work is of fine quality, very sharp and distinct, in spite of 
its age oE nigh 200 years. The wife's coat is not given, probably because she 
was not entitled to one. 

Such stones were sent out from England, and usually ordered from the 
same merchants who supplied the estates with stores. 

They are fairly numerous in the islands, both on the floors of the churches 
ami in the churchyards. In the former the naked feet of the blacks did not 
wear away their surface, and in the latter there was no frost In Hake them.

The following pedigree lias been drawn up from family papers at Cowesfield 
House, which the Editor was invited to examine in July 1913. He then cheeked 
it with the late Cant. Lawrence Archer's papers in the British Museum (Add. 
MS. 31,228) wherein (fo. 27) is this note :— 

"This Lawrence of .Jamaica pedigree I have most carefully constructed from 
original sources, public records, private relics of the family and early corre- 
spondence, etc. 1 have however omitted as unnecessary the names of estates and 
the rank in the local militia held by many of these persons. In short this is simply 
a pedigree of blood and not of ' honours and rewards.' J. II. Lawr. Archer." 

John Lawrence the first settler is given in Hoare's " S. Wilts," v., 7-i, as a son 
of Henry Lawrence, M.P., the President of the Council under Cromwell. John's 
will, which I have perused, gives no evidence in support of such claim, and the 
present head of the family, Mr. W. F. Lawrence of Cowesfield, does not wish to 
put forward any statement which cannot be proved.. He agrees that we do not 
at present know John's parentage. The family tradition is that he left England 
with James Bradshaw* and landed in Barbados, whence lie removed to Jamaica, 
arriving at Lucea in 167C>, abode there in the house of the widow Dunn, situated 
at Dunshole, a bay in St. James, and married her shortly after. There was a 
family of L., resident in Winterborne Whitchurch, Dorset, in the 17"' cent, with 
arms obliterated, but crest the usual fish's tail. Of whom John s. of John was 
bapt. in 1(> 10 and John buried in 1GGG and 1091. (Hutchins, i., 201.)

" There was an intimate connection between certain Jamaica and 
American families of Lawrence, and I have pedigree of Pennsylvanian Lawrences 
who had estates in Jamaica and eventually settled in the latter island. 

<: Some of these Lawrences were connected by marriage with Sir Philip Francis 
(Junius ?) and with the family of Win. Penu the Founder of Pennsylvania. 
There was also a double connection through the families of Allen and Masters. 
John Lawrence (will 1G0O) is said to have been a son of Henry L. Cromwell's 
President of Council and his descendant James of Fairfield is given his arms in 
Burke's General Armory. (Fairfield in .St. James, Jamaica.) 

Lawrence L. is supposed to have been the last of the family of Ivor in Bucks. 
He was born in the 17th cent. His daughters lived to a very advanced age and 
that (? the will — Ed.) of the eldest surviving (Mrs. Catli. Franklyn is recorded 
1831*) at Doctors Commons. 

There was also a branch of an Irish family of Lawrence at Portland, Jamaica. 
Mr. Eoby's " History of the Parish of St. James " is found on a comparison with 
Lawrence wills to be inaccurate in several instances."

In the year 1S30 a petition from the Coloured Inhabitants of Antigua against 
certain alleged legal disabilities, was presented to the House of Commons, and 
this was printed in Antigua I., cli. It came into my possession about the year 
1893, by purchase from Mr. Jas. Coleman, the dealer. After an interval of 17 
years, the papers marked Nos. 2, 3, 4, and 5, together with three original letters 
have just come to me from Mr. Coleman's successor. No. 3 lacks the signatures 
of the 10G whites. No. -1, which 1 now give, is endorsed : — 

"A concise view of the rise and progress of the White Servants Act, and of 
the method resorted to at this time to defeat its provisions." 

By certain laws of the Colony passed as early as the year 171 G Proprietors of 
Slaves are compelled under a heavy annual penalty of £53 . (! . 8 to have in their 
service one White Man for every forty Slaves in possession and this Amount 
of Penalty is incurred for each deficiency of a AVhite Man to that number of 
Slaves; to enforce which a return is made on Oath every Year to the Treasurer 
who levies the Penalty on every deficiency and this Law is termed. " The White 
Servants' Act." 

In order to make the cause and nature of this enactment more clear it is 
necessary to refer to the circumstances which rendered it at that time both proper 
and politic. The original Grantees of Lands were composed of Gentlemen to 
whom the Colony was given by His Majesty Xing Charles the first, and these 
were followed by other persons of fortune who emigrated during the rebellion 
which took place in that reign. To begin the cultivation it was necessary to 
import White Labourers from the Mother Country, who became indented 
servants, and their influx was so considerable that they formed not only a 
respectable Militia for the defence of their own Settlement; but were sufficient 
to assist in repelling the attacks of the French upon other Hritish Possessions in 
the West Indies, and this was the case as late as the Reign of Queen Anne. In 
process of time the original culture of Pimento, Indigo Cotton, and the trade in 
hard and dyed AVood being exchanged for that of the Sugar Cane, the Process of 
tillage and its manufacture was found to be laborious and destructive to European 
constitutions and it became expedient to import a number of negroes from Africa. 
The introduction of the cane and manufacture of Sugar with the consequent 
importation of thousands of Africans as absolute Slaves made a change not only 
in the Policy but in the original Population of the Colony and the White Man 
finding his manual exertions superseded by those of the Slave, became enervated, 
and abandoned himself to indolence and luxury, which assisted by the fatality 
of a tropical climate, swept off the majority of that class of persons. 

The continued influx of the Blacks by importation, contrasted with the 
reduction of the White Servants (with whose introduction into the colony no care 
was taken to mingle AVhite Women) gave considerable alarm to the Ruling 
Authorities, particularly as plots of insurrection had been discovered, and as the 
Proprietors seemed disposed to avail themselves of the Utility of the Negroes in 
other capacities besides the tillage of the Land, by which a great number of 
AVhite Mechanics and Artisans were put out of employment. 

In order to provide a timely remedy by which the Population might be more 
properly balanced, the then Legislature, calculating that one armed and disciplined 
European was equal to forty unarmed and ignorant Slaves, judg'd it. expedient to 
pass the first " AVhite Servants' Act " to compel every Proprietor to have on his 
Plantation one of the former to forty of the latter. 

Notwithstanding this interference of the Legislature, the Planter finding it his 
Interest, as the danger of insurrection became less in proportion, to the advance- 
ment of the Slaves in moral and civilized habits, to avoid the expense of 
employing AVhite Men, and no European for half a century past submitting to be 


indented beyond the term of ordinary Apprenticeship, the White Population 
continued to decrease so much, that in aid of the act alluded to, the Legislature 
had recourse to Bounties on their importation : but this scheme also falling short 
of the desired effect, and the Planters becoming more and more burdened with l he 
deficiency tax, the Legislature at length relaxed the law in their favour, by 
allowing their Wives and Children, as well as other white females and children, to 
be given in at the Annual returns as Free Tenants in lieu of White Adult Male 
Servants, and thus the original intention of the Law has been rendered futile and 
ineffectual, or only tended to augment the revenue in those cases, where the 
Planter was unable to procure these substitutes for Adult Male Servants; and at 
this period those Planters who have White Domestic Servants, or can procure a 
small Tenement (called a Free Tenancy) in one of the Towns, or in any pari of 
the Island, and induce White Females (from the age of Childhood to that of 
extreme decrepitude) to reside there free of rent are not absolutely compelled to 
employ any White Man whatsoever on his Estate, Those Substitutes being 
returned as their Servants and Tenents when they actually have no connexion 
with the Plantation and this plan serves to keep up appearances and to support 
an unjust and absurd policv whilst many of His Majesty's free coloured subjects 
in the Towns, are entirely destitute of employment. 

Letter from Ralph B. Cleohoen* to Z.vcuary Macaulay. 

Private. S l Kitts, 29 June 1833. 

My Dear Siu, — 

I thank you for your very kind note oT the G' 1 ' May just received. I had pre- 
viously received Mr. Pringle's letter with the pamphlet of Betto Douglass's Case and earnestly 
hope it may produce some eirect on Lord Komney. We are in possession of the plan of 
Emancipation suggested by the Colonial Minister — it does not meet either the expectation or 
wish I had formed upon this question. If however immediate and unconditional freedom 
cannot be obtained for the Slaves, the plan now under consideration (modified and elucidated) is 
perhaps the best approximation yet proposed. It seems to me to embrace these great benefits 
to the .Slave — Compulsory manumission — Admission of his Evidence in ami case — an enforce- 
ment of the due serving out of food & clothing according to the Amelioration Act, (which has 
never yet been done) — it gives him a greater proportion of time and removes from the power of 
the Master the awarding of punishment and thank God at last abolishes thc/togging of females. 
1 do not while I hail these benefits approve of any law which shall compel a man (slave or free) 
to work for a person to whom he may have many, or any objections — or to purchase that which 
was always his own — his freedom. Yet I confess my decided opinion is, that the Slaves will not 
easily be brought to agree to any plan which shall preclude their unrestricted admission to entire 
Emancipation, especially the emancipation of the will — enabling them to select their own 
employers. Who can serve a hard master ? It is the cause of God because its effects comprehend 
the spread or suppression of His holy religion, lie will therefore take it in hand and will I have 
no doubt suggest ere long (perhaps has already done so) some safe and satisfactory plan to 
abolish the horrid system. The dissentions and revengeful feelings which the agitation of this 
question has given rise to even in this small community is hardly credible. The persecutions 
that have awaited the advocates of Abolition have been and are most inveterate — 'tis indeed 
these that have driven me to the absolute necessity of putting myself entirely on the kindness of 
my friends to interest themselves in obtaining for me an employment from the Colonial govern- 
ment. It may seem strange to your mind that in consequence of my having espoused the negro 
cause positive combinations have been formed against my pecuniary prospects. Clerks of tin- 
white population, (planters) who are of course the only buyers have been desired not to purchase 
a single article at my Establishment, and so pertinaciously adhered to, has this system been, that 
1 am now endeavouring to make arrangements with a person who is to assume my concerns. I 
say endeavouring because even he is apprehensive that he may, by his association with it, intail 
upon himself part of my unpopularity. .Should this prevent any final arrangement as proposed 
between us my intention is to bring everything to the hammer, where for the sako of getting 
bari/aius the liberals will I dare say sacrifice their revengeful feelings. 1 do most earnestly 
entreat you to use your endeavours for me. My earlier life, education and habits, all have been

:i'hpted more to the discharge of public duties. The unforeseen and uaprovided-for death i I 
late Father threw everything into confusion and compelled iae to av .1 myst E of ti i m • 
eligible thing that offered, and that seemed to he the opening a store in this Col my. M_\ , litii - 
and irresistible feeling against the system of Slavery and Colonial policy generally bave 
eventfully proved that this sort of business is not my place. At first in 1820 I did will and 
acquired an income of from £1100 to £1300 C a year— but as my principles became known no 
in the same proportion did my popularity grow on the decline, 1 freed my own Slaves (never 
desiring to own one — but I acquired some by marriage and some by bequest iu all 14 or 15). 
I induced my wife's only sister to manumit hers 4 or 6 in number. I undertook the Cause u£ 
the Colored people, I became the avowed enemy of Slavery, and as a consequence a victim to the 
displeasure of the Planters and the others of the White Population. Of my sincerity in the cause 
I feel that you will not entertain a doubt or I would direct your attention to the great risk that 
I have ventured to run in poor Beta Douglass's Case in which if the fact of her being enabled by 
pecuniary assistance to evade the grasp of her persecutor could be traced andfu-ed on me, I should 
incur under an act of this it/and a liability to pay her owners an amount which in her case would 
be most enormous she having been in concealment about 8 years. It is true that 1 have only 
known her case within the hat four. The Act to which I allude provides that persons who shall 
be in any [way] instrumental in keeping slaves from their owners shall be liable to pay such 
owners not less than 12s. Currency per day for every day of such absence of said slave. Up lo 
this date I have fortunately avoided this penalty, although general suspicion attaches to me the 
blame iu many cases of which I am innocent. The last "reporter," with Beta's case in it, 1 
am quite alarmed about. I wish Pringle had left out that passage in my letter to him, iu which 
I acquaint him, of my having re-opened the letter in consequence of having seen Beta on the 
previous evening. AVe had by insinuations almost persuaded the people that Beta was oil' the 
island, and by this means had lessened both her risk and mine. 

My recommendations to the Government I proudly submit have been both strongand respect- 
able. Three successive Governors — The Attorney and Solicit or- General and The Chief Justice 
of this Colony and the Rural Bean of this diocese — all of these gentlemen are Anti-slavery in 
ti eir professions, and all have a knowledge of my principles in a greater or less degree. To tin 
Governors and the Attorney General I have been most communicative because from them 1 had 
a right to expect most support. But the new plan seems to require that persons should be 
selected to fill offices in these colonies who are unconnected with the Colonies and liberal in their 
views. It is an unenviable task to speak of one's self, hut in the present case I am as I said 
before absolutely driven to this by necessity. Inasmuch as I venture to hope for the protection 
and support of the Colonial .Minister through your kind interference 1 ought not to omit to put 
you in possession of all the facts connected with myself to enable you to meet (if any should 
arise) such objections as may be taken to my claims. 

Of my opinions and sincerity with reference to the slaves I apprehend you know enough. 
With reference to my connexion in the or with the Colonies I have to stale that although 1 was 
born here, I left it w h my Father for education in England at the age of five years and did not 
return until 1823. I remained here and married in June 1824, directly after which my Father's 
death (which took place at Sea on his passage to England) required that I should proceed lo 
London, whither I went and remained until the end of 1825 and returned to this place as a 
Merchant through the kindness of a friend who advanced me merchandize on the faith of in y 
previous good name and my expectancies under my Father's will. Iu 1829 1 was elected from 
among the free colored people to be their Delegate, and proceeded in the early part of that year 
to England in that capacity (at this time I had the happiness and honor to be known to you), 
and came hack to St. Kitts in Dec' 1830. So that you perceive my whole residence in the West 
Indies has never exceeded at any one time three years. And I can most conscientiously declare, 
that I never (and I trust I never shall) imbibed any other feeling, upon the subject of Wesl 
Indian manners and policy than that of disgust and opposition, which is only strengthened and 
increased as I know more of them. My education was liberal and although perhaps ill-dovop' 1 
has at least been English — English are my ideas and my feelings arc English. — Thank Gud 
for it. 

I have not a single relation in the West Indies but my wife, and her only sister is the only 
inmate of my house. Though Creole women they are blessed with English notions, having 
breathed the air of liberty in England. My circle of friends is necessarily very limitted, so few 
agreeing with my politics. The Attorney General of this Colony is my most intimate friend- 
there exists between us on politics a congeniality of feeling which renders us agreeable to each 
other. Between him and the Governors who have preceded the present one, my unenviable 
situation as to social intercourse was looked kindly upon and between them my time has been 
principally divided. The L' Governor now presiding over us is not what 1 considered those to 
have been who bave preceded him. A previous residence of I understand 30 years in the 
West Indies, is a disadvantage to His Excellency — his ago too, and ill-health combine to unfit 
him in my opinion to govern a West Indian colony to the benefit of the slaves or the colored 
people at this crisis particularly. 

I presume the wish of the Government would be that the gentlemon, whom they may appoint 
to carry the new system into execution, should have sonic local knowledge and experience, as 
well as being free from prejudice, and unconnected in tho colonics, in one individual from 


England all these requisites cannot be blended. And being possessed of the former and I venture 
to assert divested of the latter too, and having suffered in my pecuniary prospects from having 
devoted myself to the Cause which has occasioned this projected new order of things, I respect- 
fully submit that mine is a case for the countenance and support of the Government. An 
absence from the scene of action, and ut a distance of 4,000 miles aro disadvantages to mo which 
can only bo remedied by the vigilant assistance of my friends in London. By which I would 
not be understood to mean that, except yourself, Dr. Lushington and those gentlemen who may 
through your influence give me their support, I have any friends who can serve me in this way. 
Upon you, my dear sir, I confidently rely. The great uncertainty as to the time at which llie 
appointments will he made, and my desire to avoid an expense by travelling which my injured 
circumstances are not equal to but upon the most unavoidable necessity prevent my personal 
application to you. And although I am firmly impressed with the belief that your charh able 
consideration for me, will not allow this to operate to my prejudice, yet if you think it advisable 
and 1 lie time will admit of it, 1 will immediately take passage for London after such communica- 
tion from you. Dr. Lushington was good enough to promise me his support whenever 1 
preferred a claim for employment, and at that time there was some probability of the Patentee 
of the Provost Marshal's ollice either resigning or compounding with ELM. Government, f now 
learn that this is more likely than ever. I merely mention this to convey to you that I find it 
my imperative duty to accept anything with which I may be favored. The income derivable 
from the P. Marshal's office is about .(J 1 ,-J 00 Currency p* annum. I cannot but confess lliat my 
wish is, in case of a preference being allowed me to be employed in some way whereby 1 might 
he more beneficial to a class of people whose interests I have espoused even to my own prejudice. 
But it is nevertheless due to my circumstances and my family however small, that I put no 
obstacle in the way of procuring an immediate means of repairing my pecuniary prospects. 
The general opinion here seems to be that Commissioners or Receivers will bo appointed, or 
Stipendary Magistrates. You are aware that I have been put in the Commission of the Peace 
already and am so far eligible to such an appointment, but I fear that these will hardly be so 
well paid as other offices in consequence of the number that will be necessarily created. My 
dear sir I find I have grown into a greater length than I contemplated, and fear I shall have 
tired your patience for which 1 beg to be excused. The immense importance of this communi- 
cation to my future prospects must plead for me with you. The Officer who last administered 
this Government has just left us for England, his name and address Col' Nickle, L'."> Princes 
Street, Haymarket. lie can confirm what I have stated for he knew the facts respecting the 
sot that has been made at me in consequence of my politics. My intention was to have copied 
this letter fairly, hut the vessel I find will sail to-day and not to-morrow as was expected, I must 
therefore apologize to you for its roughness and disconnectedness of style. I leave my cases my 
dear sir entirely in your hands and most earnestly entreat your kind interference for me. As 
so favorable an opportunity has offered I have thought it my duty to write a few lines to 
D r Lushington. The letter is left open for your perusal with the request that you will be so 
good alter having read it to seal and cause it to be forwarded. 1 offer the following summary 
as a brief sketch of the situation in which I stand. 

Recommendations and Testimonials from persons in the service of the Crown and its repre- 
sentatives. A total freedom from prejudice in favor of any AVest Indian constitution or policy. 
Possessed of local knowledge and experience, and having suffered very much from devoting 
myself to the cause of the slaves. These with your interest give me sanguine hopes of success. 
Accept, my dear sir, my best wishes in which I am joined by M r " Cleghorn for the health and 
happiness of yourself and family, and believe me 

Your much obliged and very faithful scrv.

My Deak Lushington,— 

In this remote part of the world it is wholly impossible for me to [do] anything effectual 
to aid Cleghorn Whose letter I enclose. He speaks in it of having inclosed one for you, hut it 
has not made its uppearattce here and I presume is already in your possession. I certainly feel 
extremely anxious if possible to do something for Cleghorn. His conduct has been highly 
meritorious and uncompromising, and we ought not to spare a little personal trouble to mark 
our sense of his worth. 1 will write to other friends on his behalf, but 1 have little hope from 
any but you and Buxton, who has already promised to do what he can for him. I will uli»o

achieve. Would it had been more complete. Hut considering how far we have advanced
