1780 Hurricane in Barbados

Postby Kilpeck » Sat Dec 08, 2012 7:50 pm

Does anyone have information about this hurricane that devastated the island of Barbados? I am looking for anything to do with rebuilding plantations, specifically plantations owned by the Drax (Drake) and Pye families.

And what British and American ships were in the area?

Any hints of where I might locate information about the time frame 1778-1783?

Thanks for any assistance.

Three quick links...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Hurricane_of_1780
http://www.cdera.org/cunews/news/saint_ ... e_1314.php
http://books.google.ca/books?id=UziWDGd ... utput=html

There is quite a bit more from Google if you put into that search engine's textbox the following words:
1780 Hurricane Barbados +Drax
(...including the plus sign).
