Nix (Nicks) - Barbados

I am seeking information on John Nix (Nicks) who emigrated from England to Barbados in 1634 and owned a plantation there. He lived in Barbados until his death in 1685. I am also interested in any information available on his sons - James and Richard Nix. I will be traveling to Barbados in about three weeks and would like to locate John's gravesite and/or the location of his plantation. Any archival information would be greatly appreciated. I have considerable information on the family line after they left Barbados, but nothing during their tenure there.

Wrong year for you, but from Mary Gleadall's Caribbean Family History. The new URL is http://www.caribbeanfamilyhistory.org/

Barbados, Westbury Cemetery

Name . . . Date . . . Age . Birth Place
Nix,John . 1887-3-8 . 28 . St. Michael

Abode: . . . General Hospital
Minister: . . Durant, J N
Reference: 85/87

There are no other tombstone/burial records there for any NIX, and the site plantations.bb is not working.

If you wish, a competent researcher in Barbados I recommend who knows intimately all of the resources available is Dr. Patricia Stafford, B.A., PhD, phone 1-246-428-2103, or by email through the contact form here...
