MidSllantatouw papers

THE completion of this Second Volume affords me the opportunity of
again thanking contributors for their continued interest in the Work.
I wish especially to acknowledge my indebtedness to the Rev. Dr. THOMAS
for his transcription of the Parish Register of St. John's, Nevis; to
their articles on Jamaica; to Major PHIPPS and Lieut.-Colonel POOK for
papers relating to St. Kitts; to Mr. N. DARNELL DAVIS and Mr. E. G.
SINCKLER for papers relating to Barbados; and to Mr. A. ASPINALL for
notes about the West Indies in general. The publication of lists of
testators and of early settlers in this present Volume will, I hope,
encourage and facilitate personal research.

For the next Volume I have prepared a descriptive list of West Indian
book-plates, which will appear as a Supplement.

Mr. H. FARNHAM BURKE, Norroy King of Arms, has kindly offered to
have abstracts made of the wills in the P.C.C. relating to St. Vincent and
Dominica, and Mr. REGINALD GLENCROSS is already engaged on those
of Nevis.

Mr. LOTHROP WITHINGTON is endeavouring to obtain from the Colonial
Office a Report on all the Local Records.

A complete list of wills on record in Barbados has been promised by
the Registrar. I wish also to point out to subscribers that the West
India Committee is collecting together what will some day be a fine
Library of books, MSS., and engravings relating to the West Indies.

Eib &Etttlmtnt of tebis.
The two following Chancery Suits from the P.R.O. (the references to which
were sent me on 25 October 1899 by the late Mrs. V. T. C. Smith) give very
valuable authentic information about the early 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 London
merchant that whereas about Sept. 1627 he and one Roger Glover citizen and
vintner of London agreed to send into Turkey an adventure of goods costing
16001 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 9001 and 3161 for tobacco and about the
month of January 1627 your orator did fit forth a ship called theffaith to take
her voyage to the Island of St Christoferst and thence to Newfoundland and the
Straights of which Glover was to have a quarter share but by reason of tempestuous
and contrarie winds and a great mortalitie amongst the men of the ship wherein
the cheife commanders were lost and all the victualls spent the voyage to New-
foundland+ and the Straights was lost to the damage of your orator in 6001 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 ships 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 2501 and they were
bound to several persons for the freight and Glover and Francis Goare for their
friends desired your orator to acknowledge a recognizance in the high court of
chancery of 15001 unto Glover which your orator did on the 6 May last and
Glover has paid 10001 in part payment and the adventure to Turkey is not paid
and Glover hath prosecuted your orator in the 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 prays for a
subpoena 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.]

It was agreed that complainant was to become free of the Turkey Company
before the goods arrived at Leaghorne. 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 Faith for 6S 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 St Christophers and staid
so long at St Christophers 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 1618 [sic] three ships were
consigned to one of the Caribbee Islands and defendant adventured 2501 and they
# Communicated by the Editor.
t St. Christophers had been settled on 28 January 1623-4 by Captain Thomas Warner, the
ship having been fitted out by Ralph Merifield of London, merchant.
+ Newfoundland, the oldest British colony. The salted fish trade was mostly controlled by
Pool, Weymouth, and the Western Ports, and the fish was taken to Spain and Portugal for
consumption by the Roman Catholics,


were both bound for goods to several persons [all named] to the amount of 8651
also bonds to Henry Gardner and George Griffith for 30001, to the mariners of
the faith 10001 for wages, to the Guyana Company 8001, to the owners of the
ship called the faith 8001, to the owners of the London Merchant 10001, to the
owners of the Hopewell 6001. Prays action may be dismissed and asks for his
costs. [One skin.]

xxix April 1631. Your orator Thomas Litleton of London merchant for him-
self and company complaineth that in 1628 he did furnish three ships with meal
bread victualls municon apparrell and other necessarie furniture to the value of
5000' bearing the sole charge and cost and did consign them for Nevis ais
Dulcina in the West Indies whither they safely arrived and appointed John
Procter his agent and factor in Nevis to sell the goods and at the request of Cap-
taine Anthonie Hilton then governor of the said Isle under the Rt. Hon. James
Earl of Carlile after agreed prices sold him certain victualls wine arms and other
goods fit for the use of the planters there to the amount of 1067' and sold to
these planters following goods for these sums Mr Gilbert Cole 3431,* Mr Edward

Hilton and the other persons who refuse to pay and intend to defraud your
orator who hath made so great an adventure for the settlement of a plantacon in
the said Island and the planters had not been able to sustain themselves if your
orator had not victualled them and the goods cost 50001 and witnesses being in
remote parts beyond the seas and it being difficult to prove the delivery of the
goods hopeth that all the above persons will upon their oaths answer this bill.
[One skin.]
Sworn 3 May 1631. The Answer of Rowland Bullock, one of the Defendants.
It is true he bought goods for 161 and is willing to pay. [One skin.]
To save space I have omitted the shillings and pence from the sums.
t At the latter part of the suit he is called Robert.
$ Sic, but it might be meant for Singar or Seagar.


Including the Governor there are eighty names of planters in the above suit,
and as probably every man in the island got something out of the ships the number
of settlers did not much exceed eighty. The ship Hopewell is probably the same
vessel which was fitted out by Ralph Merifield of London, merchant, commanded
by Captain John Jeaffreson, and arrived on 18 March 1624 at St. Christophers.
Captain Tho. Warner returned in her to England, and obtained on 13 September
1625 a royal commission reciting his discovery of St. Christophers, Mevis, etc.,
and appointing him Governor. On 3 May 1626 Ralph Merrifield 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
1627 James Earl of Carlisle obtained a grant of all the Caribbees. On 26 October
1627 the lIopewell, under Captain William Smith, with stores from the Earl of
Carlile, arrived at St. Christophers. Captain John Smith,* writing in 1629, said:
" In this little Ile of Mevis, more than twenty years agoe, I have remained a good
time together, to wod, and water and refresh my men." This proves that the
island was used by navigators before 1609, though no permanent settlement was
effected. He then says: "The last year, 1628, Master Littleton, with some
others got a Pattent of the Earle of Carlile, to plant the Ile called the Barbados,
thirty leagues Northward of Saint Christophers; which .... they called Dulcina,
but when they came there, they found it such a barren rock, they left it ....
At last .... they came to Mevis, a little Ile 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 Saint Christophers, especially Master Anthony Hinton [sic],
and Master Edward Thompson."
Capt. Smith's narrative is probably accurate. The island Barbados is an error
for Barbudos 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 Barbuda. If Littleton's three ships sailed for Nevis in May 1628, and
on arrival found Governor Hilton and over 80 planters there, how did the latter
go out?
In the British Museum [Egerton MS. 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 Bishoprick 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 in
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 20d per lb.t they were sent
by Mr Littleton merchant, who had a commission from the Earl of Carlile, to
settle Barbados (Barbuda), but not liking it, nor Antegoa nor Mountserrat, came
down to Nevis ye 22 of July 1628, where they settled.
John Hilton said that Jacob Lake "came over with us at ye first settling."
This (late of 22 July 1628 would be about the time of arrival of the three ships
Littleton despatched according to the Chancery Suit in the previous May; but
the two accounts do not agree, and further evidence is desired. On 8 Nov. 1628
Hilton was one of those who signed another French Treaty. On 7 Sept. 1629
both St. Christopher and Nevis were plundered by the Spaniards, who took away
as hostages for Nevis, Capt. John Coolie of London, Capt. John Husbands, a
Yorkshireman, Robert Merreton of London, and John Hilton, brother of Capt.
Anthony Hilton and author of the narrative.
The Travels of Captain John Smith," vol. ii.
t Capt. John Smith stated that the freight was 3d. and the customs 9d.


Capt. Anthony Hilton, who had left for England in Aug. 1629, returned with
more men and resettled the island. During his absence the people had elected
Mr. James Russell as their temporary governor. Mr. Tho. Littleton then went
over with the object of 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,
where he met Governor Tho. Littleton, Mr. Procter the factor, Mr. Luke Stoakes,
and Capt. Sparrowe. Governor L. afterwards followed John Hilton to Tartodus
and died on the voyage. The list of Governors as given by John Hilton is as
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. Win. Vallett, his Deputy during Hilton's absence in England. He
fled in Sept. 1629.
3. James Russell, chosen by the people pro ten.
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 1638-9. Governor of Barbados 1640.
Capt. Jenings These three not named in the Colonial Calendar, so
9. Jenkin Lloyde
10. Parson Jon Meakem they were probably appointed locally.
1 Capt. John Kettleby, put in by Sir Tho. Warner about 1642.
12. Capt. Jacob Lake. In 1639 fought the Spaniards [d. Oct. 1619. See
ante, I., 190.]
13. Luke Stoakes 1649 [? same as No. 5]; removed to Jamaica in 1656 with
1200 persons.
14. Col. James Russell 1659-1671 [same as No. 3]; d. 15 Nor. 1674 at Bristol.
15. Col. Randall Russell 1671-1678, brother of James; d. before 29 June 1678.
Thos. Littleton's pedigree was recorded in the Visitation of Surrey of 1662-8.
He was the son of Sir Edward Littleton of Henley, co. Salop, Kt., by Mary, dau.
of Sir Eiward Lloyd, and is entered as "Thomas Littleton of ye Citty of London,
Governor of Mevis, Ar.," and by his wife Eliz., dau. of John Abeels of London,
merchant, left an only son and heir, James.
Petition of Capt. Wm. Digby 1 July 1652, reciting that ten years since Sir
Tho. Warner assigned to him a plantation in Nevis formerly confirmed to Warner
by Capt. Kettleby then Governor of Nevis," the present Governor, Capt.
Luke Stoakes, has taken away about 280 acres. The patent, dated 11 Dec. 164S,

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 the Commonwealth; and Major
Russell, t.e present Governor, is very fit for his present employment and beloved
amongst his neighbours." His brother Mr. Lake, a minister, arrived in the
Carlile on 7 Sept. 1629 at the s:nme 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 first Council of Jamaica.
In conclusion, it appears probable that settlers from St. Christopher passed

Capt. Anthony Hilton was appointed their first Governor by him or Thomas
Warner. At that time men were pouring into St. Christopher, and the surplus
population would naturally overflow to the neighboring islands. Capt. John Smith
said that in 1628 there had been 30 sail of English, French, and Dutch ships at
St. Christophers. Littleton's adventure was a purely commercial undertaking.
There is a good map of Nevis in Bellin's Description geographique des Isles
Antilles," p. 117, pub. in 1758. A small one inset in the map of St. Kitts
appeared in Edwards' W.I. of 1818. A small one included in the map of St. Kitts
was published by Norie in 1819, which is now reproduced as a plate.

The following genealogy has been copied from a small book 4', by 2-z inches,
containing 796 closely written pages, mostly on devotional subjects, but of which
the genealogy or Vita Auctors occupies pp. 159 to 174. The whole Book of
Psalms, pp. 101, printed in 1654, is also bound in between pp. 764 and 765.
In the "D.N.B." are a long notice of Dr. Daniel Featley and a short one of

phrey, president of Magdalen College, Oxford) by his wife Marian Thrift, and
after taking his degrees at Oxford became successively Rector of Lambeth,
1618-19, and Acton, 1626-7. He was a noted controversialist, preacher, and
voluminous writer, and died at Chelsea College 17 April 1645.
John, his nephew, was son of John Fairclough, the elder brother of Daniel.
His early life to 1656 is described in his MS. book. After the Restoration he

Langar, and later Vicar of Edwinstowe, co. Notts; created, 7 June, D.D. Oxon.;

tion or any part of the information we are in pursuit of. Certainly there must be
in Jamaicat who can give an Account of the connections, either from memory or
tradition, of most of the families of Rank in Jamaica, & those of a Lieutt
Governor most assuredly will not remain a blank in such chronological memories.
If you had obtained anything relative to the Will of the Lieutt Governor you

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 (Baremoodians) had little help of the provision of store
which was spent in the fruitless work of Warwick Fort. Thus many have
endured great hardness. The island is full of hills and not so fertile as was
reported. At New Westminster, and where Captn. Axe lives, the ground has this
year twice failed in corn. This 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 worms 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.]
1646, May 9. [Somers Island, Bermuda.] William Rener 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 Rudyerd.
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. Copeland,
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 (Willoughby) 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 this colony wonder-
fully prosper by reason of the decline of Barbados, whence we daily expect sixty
passengers and planters by the Guiana.
Communicated by the Editor,


All things are excessively dear, and the sugar so bad that it will hardly be
received. Money is as fluent there as in England, and taverns take nothing else
-no goods, which must occasion a decay of their old trade. The Spaniards we
understand have bought 500 negroes from the island for ready money at high
rates. Our colony is daily improving. Seven ships have already gone hence
laden with sugar, specklewood, and other commodities.
Major Noel has a windmill up, and ours will be the next to be made. Every
one is striving for the good of the public. Our sugar is far better, and of greater
price than that of Barbados. Our noble Governor may justly bear the honour,
having won every one not only to himself but also to industry. Some debauched
persons have lately tried to make the world believe that he intended to poison
Lieut.-Col. [Robert] Sanford. It was a plot of Sanford's. Particulars given.

1667, December 15. Barbados. Lord Willoughby to Sir Charles Pym.
"I am going to Leeward to settle things there, and I may chance try my skill
in Indian-hunting. Their late barbarities have been such that they deserve no
law." Heraldic seal.
1668, November 8. Antigua. William Byamn to Sir Charles Pymn at Hlatton
House, London.
I have deserted our unfortunate colony of Surinam, war and pestilence having
almost consumed it. As it is to revert to the Dutch, I have with great loss
removed to Antigua, where 1'am hewing a new fortune out of the wild woods.
Resettling is hard, the island being ruined by the French and the Indians. The
titles of our lands are established to the satisfaction of all, and the inhabitants are
more now than ever before. Heraldic seal. [p. 96.]
The writer was a prominent Royalist refugee officer at Barbados in 1650, but
removed to Surinam after Sir G. Ayscue's reduction of the island to the Common-
wealth. He published An Exact Relation of the most execrable attempts of
John Allen, committed on the person of His Excellency Francis, Lord Willoughby
of Parham, Captain General of the Continent of Guiana and of all the Caribby
Islands, and our Lord Proprietor." Sm. 4to. London, 1665.

This family of Williams had branches settled from very early times in Antigua,
St. Kitts, and Nevis. Their pedigree is rather complicated and confusing, and
any information about them is desired.

Pemberton.-John Butler Pemberton (the first) was Clerk of Assembly in 1730.
Williams.-By a deed of 10th December 1755, John Williams, late of Nevis,
then of Great Windsor, Berks, for his daughters Frances and Sarah Williams
conveyed to Henry Herbert and Thomas Mills all his plantations in St Kitts and
Nevis on trust. John Williams' wife was Sarah .... A John Williams, junr.,
was of Wimpole Street. In 1760 was a deed between John Williams, senr., of
Lower Brook Street and Sarah his wife of 1st part, and John Williams, junr., of
Wilton, co. Middlesex.
Butler.-In Nevis, 1748, Duke Butler was described as of Swinden, 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 William Peterson and a brother John were sons of
Anthony (Book of Records, 1737, fo. 398). John was Deputy Provost Marshal.
William Peterson had three other sons, James, Charles, and Robert, and three
daughters, Elizabeth, Ann, and Eleanor. He owned the Spring" plantation
in Nevis.
Isabella Garnett, coloured, aged 78, daughter of Fanny Browne, both belonging
to Parson Robert Pemberton, stated (in a personal interview with me), that Parson
Robert Pemberton gave up North Wales estate at Nevis, and went to live at
St 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, Robert Hughes, and Sholto, 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

On a tablet in the church:-

born | on the 10th of September, 1787 I and died I on the 19th of September, 1870 |
having been Rector of this Parish I nearly 60 years. I This tablet I was erected
by his affectionate parishioners.

Copied on the spot during a visit to Nevis in 1902.
NOTE.-Of the above, No. 1 was the son of Wm. and Margaret P. [see Vol. I., p. 307]. In the
Almanac of -evis for 1826 his name is entered as a barrister. No. 2 has not been identified,
but she may be the "Fanny," daughter of the Rev. Joseph Herbert P., who was baptized in
1834 and died single [see Vol. I., p. 308]. Nos. 3, 4, and 5 were sons of Walter Maynard P. of
Spring Hill, Nevis, who was drowned at the wreck of the Clarendon off the Isle of Wight on
11 October 1836. No. 6 has the following obituary in the G.M.," p. 382: 1828 Feb. 1.
At Round Hill, Nevis, W.I. in his 67th year, Thos. John Cottle, esq. This gentleman was for
upwards of 30 years a member of his Majesty's council; and for the greater part of that long
period President of this Island." No. 7, Miss Julia Huggins was residing on her estate
" Mountravers" in April of last year.



During a portion of the period during which the families whose pedigrees
are given in some detail above were settled in Nevis and St. Christopher, there
were also members of another family of the name in the last-mentioned island.
These were descended from Thomas Pemberton of Gough House, Chelsea, who
was employed in the Transfer Department of the India Office for some years
before his death in 1801 (" G.M.," 1153). No connection has as yet been traced
between this family and the other Pembertons in the West 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 Sigerist, and went there as a planter. lie was born on 9 November
1770 and baptized at S. Mary Abbott's, Kensington, on 10 Decenber following.
The date of his emigration has not been ascertained, but on 12 July 1798 he
married at St. John's, Capisterre, St. Kitts, Frances Ashington Seaton, daughter
of Captain William Seaton of that island.
A younger brother of this Thomas, John Busick Manning Pemberton, died at
St. Kitts at the age of 22, and all others of the family there 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 from St. Christopher
registers immediately preceding this note. Their names, in order of seniority,
were Thomas Seaton, Frances Maria, William Augustus Sadler, Charlotte
Hardtman, Busick Richards, Julia, Henry Seaton, Edward, Charles Davis, and
Harriet Amelia Mary.
Thomas Seaton married in 1833, at St. James', Nevis, Adriana, laughter of
Colonel James Daniell, President of that island, and he appears to have left
St. Kitts soon after that, as his children were all born in London. His eldest
son Mordaunt belonged to the Nevis bar in 1864 and became a Q.C. in 1879.
He died unmarried in England in 1887.
No other member of the next generation appears to have settled in the West
Indies-the only one of the six brothers who had a family being the youngest,
Charles Davis, and he left St. Kitts at a comparatively early age, having been
married at Broadstairs in 1846 (" G.M.," 1846, p. 420), and all his large
family were born in England. He practised as a solicitor in London from
the year 1846 to the year 1888, being senior partner in the well-known firm of
Lee & Pemberton's of 44 Lincoln's Inni Fields.
His three eldest sons, Charles Seaton, Busick Edmonds, and Cyril Warner
Lee became solicitors, and the second of the three is now senior partner of the
same firm of Lee & Pemberton's. The fourth son, Seymour Blaushard, was in a
West India Regiment and died at Barbados in 1881. One son, Ernest St. Clair,
served in the Royal Engineers, and retired as a Colonel in 1908. Two sons,
Seaton Blanshard and Willoughby Arthur (the youngest), are on the London
Stock Exchange; and another, Horace Claude, has settled in the Argentine
Republic. Three married daughters are also living.
Charles Davis Pemberton, the father of all these, who was born at St. Kitts a
few months before the Battle of Waterloo, died at Brighton on 6 September 1899.

gence of the death of Brigadier-General Hughes in that Colony on the
27th ult.

See his death in 1811. He was father, I think, of William Walrond Jackson, born 9 January
1811 in Barbados, was educated at Codrington College, became Priest 1835, served in several
parishes, and was Bishop of Antigua 1860-79, when he retired, and died 25 November 1895 at
Ealing. [ED.]

of the Forces in this country, and of Lord Ducie, Provost-Marshal-General

Oct. 22 The late Captain Younghusbands. This very meritorious Officer, to
whom the Insurance offices of this Town some time ago voted 200 guineas
for the purchase of a Piece of Plate, having died before the application of
the money, his mother has appropriated that sum to a purpose which at once
honours her own maternal sensibility, and the Manes of her gallant son.
"A very elegant rural marble monument," say some of the London prints,

AGENT IN 1782.
Mr. Noel B. Livingston of Kingston, Jamaica, copied the following original
unrecorded Power of Attorney from the Records of the old Court of Vice-
Admiralty. It was torn in three or four places:-

SSealed and delivered in the presence of
A. N. Yates.

A considerable number of the early settlers in Jamaica did not emigrate there
direct from Great Britain, but were drawn from the older colonies. This point is
of much interest, and should be taken into consideration by readers when
inquiring into the origin of the first inhabitants.
Capt. Gregory Butler, who was recruiting for the Expedition, in his letter to
the Protector in 1655 [Thurloe's State Papers, iii., 574], wrote that Antegoe was
molested by Indians and had but 1200 men, so he would not enlist any. At
Montserrat he raised 80, at Nevis 300, and at St. Kitts 800 or 900, in spite of
the French owning one half the colony. "This island is almost worne out by
reason of the multitude that live upon it .. The fleet appearing we shipped our
men to the number of twelve hundred and departed." Penn and Venables
anchored off St. Kitts on 6 April 1655, and including the above 1200, they had on
board 5000 West Indian settlers, besides women and children, the majority from


Barbados. The survivors took possession of Jamaica next month. Vice-Admiral
Win. Gocdson wrote on 24 June 1656: "Upon notice given from Governor
Stokes of himself ard the people of Nevis their intention to transplant themselves
hitter, dispatched three ships for their transport, ard 411 June a vessel arrived
from the Governor with three gentlemen to treat with us concerning shipping
and to view the country. Afterwards fitted out a small vessel to carry back our
resolutions of sending ships for about 1000 people besides women, children and
servants" [America and W.I. Calendar for 1675-6, Addenda 1574-1674, p. 110].
Capt. Godfrey writes on 30 June 1656: "Is going with some ships to Nevis and
St Christopher's to fetch the Governor, his lady, and such planters as will come
to Jamaica." [Ibid., p. 112.]
Vice-Admiral Goodson writes again in Oct. 1656: "that they arrived at
Nevis road on 9th Oct. and have been embarking about 1400 men, women
and children, with their goods and servants and intend sailing 21st inst."
[Ibid., p. 114.]
Cornelius Burough writes on 28 Nov. 1658: "In Gen. Brayne's time about
1,0001. in provisions was lent to Nevis planters settled on Port Morant, they
being in great want." [Ibid., 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 1666, Du Tertre says some of
the English inhabitants were sent to Jamaica, etc.
In 1670 the Somer Islands were so crowded that many of its people removed
to Jamaica. In 1675 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 Vestry Books.
There is, however, no complete list.
Below is a list of the Parishes in my Diocese:-
8. Michael. S. Philip. S. James. S. Lucy.
Christ Church. S. John. S. Peter. S. Andrew.
S. George. S. Thomas. S. Joseph.

Allusion was made in Vol. I., p. 287, 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 on 17 June 1910 sent in its Report, of which
On the 10-11 Aug. of that year a most destructive hurricane occurred. Owing to the
liability of the West Indies to earthquakes, hurricanes, and fires, it seems desirable that an Act
should be passed, providing for the transcription of the parish registers, and for the deposit with
the Bishop each year of certified copies of all entries. Such an Act was at one time in force even
in England, and in these islands it is still more necessary. [ED.]


a printed copy has been forwarded to me by Mr. E. G. Sinckler, the Hon.
Secretary. This list comprises all the old forts and batteries; tombs on plantations;
and ancient Great houses," of which Fontabelle, Drax Hall, and Nicholas Abbey
were apparently all erected in the Cromwellian period. The M.I. noted relate
more especially to the following families, viz.:-
Ayshford, Collins, Culpeper, Forte, Greaves, Holder, Holloway, Hooke, Lear,
Lillington, Morris, Rice, Rider, Rouse, Scott, Simmons, Skeete, Thorpe, Tyler,
Walton, Wilkinson, Williams, and Worrell. As the vaults on the plantations
are more liable to destruction than those in the churchyards, 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 Thorne of Barbados copied all the M.I. of St. Michael's,
and perhaps of other parishes, and his collection should certainly be printed.
Major Lawrence Archer's well-known work relates chiefly to Janmaica, and he
stated that his stay at Barbados was so short that he only noted Inscriptions
down to 1750.

In the West India Committee Circular for 6 December 1910, under Historic
Sites and Monuments," appeared Mr. 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 1661. He married in 1668 (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 1680 to 1688,
was elected Member of the Assembly for St. Andrew in 1701-2.
"His wife Joanna Wilhelmina 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 1709, and was buried in
Halfway-Tree Church. The first Colonel Archbould's second son, Major William
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 'Official and
other Personages of Jamaica,' 1896) for the sale of certain lands in Liguanea
belonging to Henry Archbould, late of the said parish, 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 Spring estate, with some mountain land adjoining, called
Snow Hill, was (the writer is informed by Mr. G. F. Judah) sold by Henry
Archbould to Daniel Moore, etc."

He came over with General Venables in 1654, being then a Captain, and became later Lieut.-
Colonel of Carter's Regiment. (" Narrative of General Venables' Expedition," by Firth, p. 117.)



Colonel Edward Morgan went out as Lieut.-Governor in 1664, and died in
St. Eustatius July 1665 during the attack of that Island. By his wife, a dau. of
Baron Pollnitz, he had:-
I. Anne Petronella, married Colonel Robert Byndlos. He died 16 June 1687,
aged 49. Will recorded. Slab at St. Catherine's with his arms, impaling
.... a chevron between three bucks' heads cabossedfor Morgan (Archer,
34). They had issue:-
1. Charles, heir 1688 to his uncle by marriage, Sir Henry Morgan,
whose surname he was to take. A Tho. Byndlos of Jamaica
graduated at Leyden 23 August 1742.
2. A dau., married Tho. B., grandson of Colonel Peter Beckford.
lie matriculated from Merton College, Oxford, 10 November
1699, aged 17.
II. Mary Elizabeth. second dau. and fourth child, married soon after 1665
her first-cousin, Sir Henry Morgan (eldest son of Robert Morgan of
Llanrhvmny, Glamorganshire, brother of the above Colonel Edward
Morgan). He was born about 1635. Lieut.-Governor of Jamaica
1674. Buried at St. Cath. 26 August 1688. Will dated 17 June
and sworn 14 September 1688. She was buried at the same place
3 March 1696, s.p. Archer gives no M.I. See article on Sir Henry
Morgan in the D.N.B."
III. Joanna Wilhelmina, married at St. Catherine 30 November 1671 (I., 14),
Colonel Henry Archbould.


"About the year 1666, the Bridge-Town was burnt; and all the chief Records
lost by a Hurricane, which happened the same year." (" Memoirs of the First
Settlement of Barbados," Appendix I.)
In 1667 a commission collected all the Acts, "the Original Rolls being lost
either in the Hurricane or Fire." 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 should draw a list
of the books of records, and send them to some able person or Chief Officer, who
was to cause them to be transcribed. ("The 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 1661, the Fees of the Secretary's Office
were settled, and the following papers are mentioned, viz.: Deed, bill of sale,
bond, ticket, deposition, licence for marriage, will, administration, inventory, etc.
(Ibid., 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?

Brooks of St. Cliabett, amnaita.*
The earlier portion of the pedigree has been taken by Miss Nembhard from
one drawn up by lawyers about 1807, endorsed Sketch of Descent of F. G. Smyth
Ese from Geo. Brooks sen. Geo. Brooks, Will Entd 219t Novr 1750. Lib. 28,
folio 19. Papers relative to Mrs. Witter. Not examined." George Brooks, great-
grandson of testator, was Claimant under the will as Right Heir of Mrs. Witter,
the surviving Dau. of the three. F. G. Smyth of Goshen was Claimant as sur-
viving Heir of one of the Daus., being son of Fra. Geo. Smyth, deceased, and
grandson of Cath. Brooks and F. Smyth. The latter portion has been taken from
the pedigree drawn up by her father, the late Major-General Nembhard (1827--
1905), founded on facts partly derived from his mother (1808-1874). The
pedigree requires proof from wills, deeds, and parish registers, but it is probably
fairly accurate.
A bookplate of John Brooks has been preserved; it is in the Chippendale style,
with the Brooks arms so incorrectly engraved as to be useless for illustration.
It however shews on an escutcheon of pretence : Gules, on a chevron Or three
pellets, a coat of some heiress which has not been identified. [EDITOR.]

This estate is in the parish of St. Elizabeth, some two miles from the village
of Santa Cruz. About a mile from the residence known as "Pear Tree Valley"
are the ruins of an old house with its large overgrown flower garden still traceable.
To the east, on a slight eminence four or five chains off, is the old family burial-
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
ARMs.-.... A cross engrailed per pale .... (no tinctures). CREST.-A badger
passant above an esquire's helmet.
"Here lies the body of GEORGE BROOKS, Esqr the Elder, who departed this
life May ye 9th, 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. 18), dated 3 March
1748 and proved 21 November 1750, he names his wife Eliz., six sons, Samuel,
John, George, Christopher, Thomas, and Francis, also four daus., Anna, Elizabeth,
Bonella, and Catherine.
Without 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:-
"Here lieth the body of Mrs ELIZABETH CIIAMBERS, who departed this life on
the 16 day of March, 1772, aged 521 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 BONELLA CHAMBERS who departed this life on Sunday
the 6th September 1772 aged 31 years and four months. She was a fond
affectionate wife, a dutiful child, and a benevolent woman."
The whole of the above information has been derived from an article in
"The Gleaner" of Jamaica, 1898, by Leslie Alexander, a clerk in the Record
Office of Kingston.
Contributed by Miss Mabel Nembhard of 27 Gilbert Street, W.
t Formerly known as Burnt Ground."
1 I think this 52 must be an error for 32, as she would hardly be 21 years older than her
sister Bonella.

The second John is thought to have been a natural son of George Brooks, Esq.,
because in 1769 and 1775 private acts were passed to authorize the latter to
dispose of his estate, without regard to the Law of Disabilities, and to intitle his
reputed children by Mary Powell to the same rights as English subjects (Feurtado).
Dr. George Brooks inherited a moiety of the Chester estate Trelawney 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 negros were allowed to squat on the remainder.
His son, the Rev. George Bvgrave Brooks, sold 300 acres of the Blenheim
estate, which had formerly brought in 10,000 a year, to a Rev. Mr. Hildebrand,

Chichester, co. Sussex, chirurgeon, overseers in trust, to whom I give a guinea

Witnesses: Wi. Ayling, Rich. Norris, Wm. Godfrey.
Proved 5 February 1718 (22, Browning).
"Col. Brooks" was named in the list of his officers drawn up by Venables.
See Bridges' "Annals of Jamaica," 1827, i., p. 198. 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 lHouse.
I do not think many names have been omitted, though some references are sure to
have been overlooked.
In 1656 a list was drawn up of officers and soldiers engaged in the American
Expedition who applied for arrears of pay, or on whose account claims were made by
their widows, etc. (185 names, Colonial Cal."). On 18 April 1656 Susanna, relict
of Edward Winslowe, Esq., and Josiah, his son and ex'or, represented that her
husband was appointed on 12 December 1651 one of the commissioners in the
Expedition to the W.I., with a salary of 1000 per annum, but died on the
voyage 8 May 1655 (Ibid., p. 439). Capt. George Butler, and Mary, widow of
Their first son was Chas. Fred. (1840-1905), Assistant Bishop of J. 1888-1904, con-
secrated in Westminster Abbey 30 November 1888.



Major-General Richard Fortescue, are also among those named. See also her
Petition of August 1661 (Ibid., p. 52). 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 first 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.

By a deed dated 7 August 1787 recorded at Nevis it appears that by an

wich, co. Kent, spinsters, granted to Robert Pemberton of the Middle Temple,
but then of Nevis, certain lands in the parish of St. George, Nevis, and four
negroes in return for an annuity of 210. Robert Pemberton died intestate

agreed to transfer the land to them, the annuity not having been paid. (General

No stone can be found of any earlier date. There may have been one in the
church to Colonel Tho. Butler of 1744, but the building was completely destroyed
by fire some sixty years ago.
The first-named Mr. James Butler may have been the brother of Colonel Thos.
Butler, but if he was the son he was buried 7 February 1770, aged 48, 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 Mrs Judith Butler, widow, now in England (sister to my late
wife), all sums owing," and settled all his estates on his only surviving child
Judith, wife of Stapleton Dunbar of Nevis. Proved 7 September 1762 (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, but a complete
search was not made owing to the fees. A search from 1700-1800 would have
cost 50s.

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

South aisle, on a handsome marble tablet, which according to Hutchins was
in his time on the north wall, but it is now on the south wall:-

" D: Butler Rectr" first appears, and for the last time in 1778.
Rev. Thomas Butler, his son, LL.B., of Queen's College, Oxford, was instituted
11 February 1780; first signs in 1779, and last in 1809.
Rev. William Butler, brother of Thomas, as curate performed marriages on

3 September 1815 and 1 April and 15 May 1816.
1811, Thursday, April 19. On Monday the 1st instant died, at Okeford Fitz-

upwards of 30 years rector of that parish, and of Hannington, 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 calling,
yet his active mind found leisure for the pursuits of science and the useful -
mechanical arts.
He was afflicted with a dropsy combined with a liver complaint, the progress
of which pointed out the approach of death, which he viewed undismayed, and
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. With these talents and acquirements, he was un-
assuming among his friends, and affectionate to his parishioners and dependants:
he was therefore respected and beloved by rich and poor, and long will his loss be
regretted, and his memory revered. (" Dorchester and Sherborne Journal.")

There is a small mural tablet on the south wall of the church, bearing the
following inscription:-

Vicar of Frampton,
who departed this life
August 13, 1843,

Hutchins (iv., 344) states that he was instituted Vicar of Sturminster Newton
21 November 1791, but resigned in 1800, and (ii., 302) that he was of Wadham

Sir William Stapleton, that most energetic Governor of the Leeward Islands,
sent home in 1678 complete lists of the inhabitants 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 the list for St. Kitts, which I have
copied exactly, only substituting S for the long "f" and F for "ff," as being
more convenient to the reader. Some of the names are difficult to decipher, the
Irish ones being worse (to me, at any rate) than the French. In the same
volume are lists of the Members of the Council and Assembly, but these may be
seen in the official Colonial Calendar.
I cannot account for the large number 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. Laws against Papists were then
enforced, and I believe most of them were removed or went to Montserrat, which
was almost wholly populated by Irish.

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

Efqr. Ob. 3 Feb. 1780

1780, Feb. 8. Henry Cruger esqr was buried by Mr Haynes M.C. (Cathedral
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
Representatives in Parliament), Having been some years in a very 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 Magistrate, with
the highest reputation. The cheerfulness of his disposition, and the affability 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 Tuesday morning in the
Cathedral of this city. (" F.B.J.")
He had large interests in the West Indies, as appears by his will, wherein he
describes himself as Henry Cruger, Senr, late of New York, now at Bristol.
Estates in Jamaica and St. Croix; proved 1780 (125, Collins).
In St. James's Chapel, Hampstead Road, is a tablet to Lieut.-Col. John
Harris Cruger, late of Russell 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:-
CRUGF., 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
ministerial party, addressed a letter to General Gage on the alarming state of
public affairs. This communication is dated May 5th, on which day two members
of the Council of New York sailed for England. When, in 1769, 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 Lancey. (" G.M.," 572.)
1827, April 24. At New York, aged 88, Henry Cruger, esq. formerly of
Bristol, and its representative in Parliament, with 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. He 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 any survive) to know, that no man ever lived more highly respected,
or died more sincerely lamented. (Ibid., 94.)

Cloisters, north wall. A large marble monument* with a cherub above,
resting its right arm on a headstone. To the right is an urn with shield bearing:-
CREST.-A dexter arm erect, couped, holding .... [broken], a coronet encircling
the forearm. AnMs.-Gules, a lion rampant Or.

When the Rev. John Woodward wrote in 1867 this monument was on the west wall of the
transept, and the arms were : Paly of six Sable and Ermine, a lion rampant Argent.
In vol. iv. of "The Herald and Genealogist," published in 1867, there is a valuable article
by him on the Heraldry of Bristol Cathedral. During the restoration, when he wrote, much
destruction of ancient monuments was taking place, and several M.I. and heraldry which he
recorded are now (1909) no longer in existence.


On the small headstone is the following:-
