DEW - Barbados

Postby Nic » Fri Jun 04, 2010 6:35 pm

I'm searching for Barbados information on the surname variously spelled Dew, Dews, Dewes, Doo, or Due. One Thomas Dew was in Barbados in the 1670s-1680s, and may have been the father of one Robert Dews (died in Charleston, South Carolina, 1722). The Dew family may have intermarried with the Middleton family that also emigrated to South Carolina in the 1680s. Can anyone confirm that Robert Dews was born in Barbados ca. 1687?

Thanks,
Nic

Using the International Genealogical Index (the IGI - created, owned and operated by the Mormons)
http://www.familysearch.org/eng/Search/ ... ch_IGI.asp

I come across a record - a christening - for just one Dew. Of course, his father and mother are listed, if you "drill down" by clicking on his name...

IGI Individual Record FamilySearch™ International
AITMAN DEW
Event(s):
Christening: 30 AUG 1776 Saint Michael, Barbados, Caribbean
Parents:
Father: WILLIAM DEW
Mother: JANE
Source Information:
Batch No.: Dates: Source Call No.:
C513953 1771 - 1815 1157925

Using the Batch number to reduce the number of returned records, I thaen searched with just the surname Middleton and came up with the following...

1. EDWARD MIDDLETON
Gender: Male Christening: 09 SEP 1804 Saint Michael, Barbados, Caribbean
2. JOHN MORRISON HUME MIDDLETON
Gender: Male Christening: 08 OCT 1786 Saint Michael, Barbados, Caribbean
3. JOHN WILLIAM MIDDLETON
Gender: Male Christening: 23 AUG 1796 Saint Michael, Barbados, Caribbean
4. SARAH MIDDLETON
Gender: Female Christening: 08 OCT 1786 Saint Michael, Barbados, Caribbean
5. SARAH MIDDLETON
Gender: Female Christening: 09 SEP 1804 Saint Michael, Barbados, Caribbean
6. WILLIAM LEWIS MIDDLETON
Gender: Male Christening: 24 SEP 1802 Saint Michael, Barbados, Caribbean
7. MARIA MIDDLETON

13. CHRISTIAN ANN MIDDLETON

14. ESTHER MIDDLETON
Gender: Female Christening: 27 JUL 1781 Saint Michael, Barbados, Caribbean
15. HESTER MIDDLETON
Gender: Female Christening: 31 MAY 1783 Saint Michael, Barbados, Caribbean
16. GUNNING MIDDLETON
Gender: Male Christening: 14 DEC 1813 Saint Michael, Barbados, Caribbean
17. JOSEPH MIDDLETON
Gender: Male Christening: 09 SEP 1804 Saint Michael, Barbados, Caribbean
18. RICHARD MIDDLETON
Gender: Male Christening: 30 JAN 1773 Saint Michael, Barbados, Caribbean

Each name is a link, so if you go and follow what I have done (to "drill down" in the records) you may find out more.

Please note: While this is a free service and is in the main reliable (a veritable pot of gold, many will tell you!!), the IGI does accept unverified uploads of family trees from users and is therefore considered unreliable (due to "wishful thinking" and the efforts of some people to discard accuracy in their efforts to connect with royalty or fame. Any reliable researcher will tell you to VERIFY any information you manage to find in the IGI.

HTH,
Jim
