CARRINGTON, Barbados to Trinidad and Tobago

Postby Candice Francois » Sun Apr 17, 2011 11:11 pm

I am looking for information about Carrington brothers who left Barbados in the late 1800s/early 1900s and migrated to Trinidad and Tobago. Somehow all Carringtons in Trinidad and Tobago are supposedly descendants of these siblings. I have not been able to pinpoint the exact story and was wondering if anyone could help. I have heard the following variations of the story from different members of my family:

Version 1:
3 Carrington brothers came from Barbados to Trinidad and Tobago: James, Wesley and Gustavus. They settled in Tobago and had several children. Their father's name was Seddra Carrington.

Version 2:
6 Carrington brothers and 1 sister came from Barbados to Trinidad and Tobago. The sister's name was Bebe Carrington. The brothers' names were:
- Wesley Carrington a.k.a. James Wesley Carrington
- Shadrach Carrington
- William Carrington
- Prophet Carrington
- No one knows the other 2 boys' names for sure, but one may be called Henry Carrington. (Someone from Princes Town, Trinidad is looking for information about a Carrington relative that came from Barbados and mentioned Henry Carrington's name).

Version 3:
3 brothers came from Barbados: Shedrach Carrington, William Carrington and another who no one knows his name.
- Shedrach was James Wesley Carrington's father.
- Gustavus Carrington was the other Carrington brother's son (the one who no ones his name) .

I am not sure if there are records in Barbados about any of these people. I would like to know what the real story is so that I can update my tree.

Thanks in advance for any help that you can provide.

HI,

My neighbours were part of the Carrington family. They lived in San Fernando

My Great Grandfather was Prophet Carrington. I'd be interested to hear any information and stories you have on these brothers.

Do you have any information on Charles Carrington's siblings? That would help.

PreciousTrini -- We may be cousins! You're the first person to confirm that another one of the Carrington brothers (with a name that I was given) actually existed. So it seems like Story #2 may have some validity in it. I have a family tree on ancestry.com with a lot of information about James Wesley's descendants. They mostly settled in Charlotteville, Tobago and a few moved to Trinidad (where I'm from). I'd appreciate any information that you could provide about Prophet Carrington's line.

Sorry I never came back to this post. I'm wondering if anyone out there may have a connection they'd like to share with me.

Thanks.
