From 1654 Jews were forced to leave Brazil by Portugal.

Aaron Navarro's mention of his business interests in Brazil suggests his family may have opted to stay on after 1654 but ultimately were forced to leave.

Found this link.

Perhaps the Valverde's were in the same boat.

Extract from article --- "A book of records that survived provides evidence of all of the services provided by the community, and outlines the customs and regulations by which it functioned. For example, the synagogue had assigned seats, which no one was permitted to change, and on Shabbat Nahamu, the first Sabbath after Tisha Be’Av, funds were collected for the Jewish community in the Land of Israel. This “minute book” lists signatures of 171 members, providing a valuable source of the names of some of the Jewish residents of Brazil. Many of the families involved in the founding of the Shearith Israel Sephardi synagogue in New York could trace their roots back to Recife by way of the minute book."

On the children of William Armstrong Ashby: I may be missing something, but the Millicent Ashbys I located don't seem to tie back to William. Do you have dates?

"The Valverdes an extraordinarily prolific family, and in later years the numerous descendents of Abraham and Jael Valverde were to puzzle the genealogist by reason of the recurring duplication of names." A Review of the Jewish Colonists in Barbados in the Year 1680. Wilfred S. Samuel, May 19, 1924.

I cannot remember where I got Millicent's name from but I have her marrying a Burke and producing two children, Gordon and Dorothy.

I think it must have been from my Aunt who is now deceased.

I see the problem, Millicent can't be found in the on-line databases as the daughter of William Armstrong Ashby.

Best I can do is next time I am the archives see if William Armstrong Ashby left a will and named his children.

As far as the Valverde's go, there is a burial in the Jewish Records of an Abraham Valverde who is listed as a Free Mulatto.

Date 20th Oct 1739, age 26.

Thanks. William Armstrong's will might also give a clue as to a death date for Estelle.

I reckon so too.

I remember my aunt telling me Millicent married a Burke and her daughter a Dewhurst.

Result was a test cricketer.

I suspect the cricketer could be George Alric Dewhurst of Trinidad but he never played test cricket.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Dewhurst_(cricketer)

Maybe Millicent was a cousin.

Well, agree that the Julia Eliza Ashby/Alice Keeling Burke/George Dewhurst chain seems to fit the family lore.

William Armstrong Ashby's will was proved shortly after his burial in 1866. His oldest child was about 14. There is no mention of his children. He left everything to his wife, Rebecca Keiling Ashby.

I am not finding my response in my Outbox or Sent Messages when I respond to private messages so it looks as though I need to figure out how this system works.

I think the asterisk in the Will Summaries may indicate there is more in the actual will on the particular person than what has been extracted.

William Ashby for sure was a Quaker.

He spent Christmas Day 1676 in stocks because he practiced his trade, stone mason, in a Quaker Burying Place. Two other Quakers with him were also put in stocks.

Source is Besse ... Suffering of the Quakers.

George Ashby his father also appears in the book.

Most Bajans were Quakers in that early period and that's why there are so many roadblocks in genealogy research.

The records of the Quaker Meetings are not available ... at least up until now!!

Hello JohnK
I don't think we have corresponded before, if so - forgive me.

Have you seen my website www.linleyfh.com ? I have been researching the Ashby family since the 70s, but not added anything for ages.

By the most amazing co-incidence I met a descendant of the mixed Ashby family while visiting the Barbados many years ago, but lost contact with him.

I have the book 'Sugar in the blood' and found she had used the same sources as I had many years previously, but I am always wary of stories that discuss the weather and some-one's thoughts on a given day!

I feel confident that we all have the same ancestors - George & Deborah, but their origins remain elusive.

Living in Australia, it is hard to check original records, and I still recall my visit to the Barbados archives and watching fragments of documents flying out the 'windows'. I do hope conditions have improved, but unfortunately much has been lost.

Linley Hooper (wife of the 8th gt grandson of George & Deborah).
