Caribbean Surname Index

Postby Kilpeck » Mon Feb 13, 2012 1:27 am

If anyone has in their possession the book Caribbean Surname Index by Joann Sanders would you be willing to do a look up for me.

I'm searching for anyone living/working/visiting in Barbados during the years of the American Revolution 1776-1783 by the name of PYE. Please also check out the names that are spelled Pie and PY.

I am specifically looking for anyone by the name of Pye with ties to the colonies of Virginia and Maryland.
William Pye, born about 1765, is said to have been in Barbados living with relatives. He was impressed off the docks by Ameri8can seamen, held prisoner until the end of the war (possibly held by the British) and released in Newfoundland.

I would appreciate any little bit of information which might solve this family mystery.

I am not aware that Joanne Macree Sanders ever wrote a book by the name "Caribbean Surname Index".

Her most famous work was the series of books named "Barbados Records", which incorporated detailed and indexed lists of Baptisms, Marriages, and Wills & Administrations, about six volumes in all, and enough work to occupy anyone continuously for at least a couple of decades.
