LYNCH - Barbados, St. Michael

Postby TriniJan » Tue Mar 22, 2011 4:07 pm

Hi,

I'm a Lynch descendant living in Trinidad. My great-grandmother came to Trinidad in the 1920's, and was from a clan of Lynch's from St. Michael's Barbados. They were also related to the BRIGGS and BABBS clan from the same area. I don't know if there are any family members left, as they seemed to die pretty much childless, but worth a shot. lol

I would be interested in any information about my great-great-grandfather and beyond, so here goes:

William Lynch (mulatto Irish, merchant) married Dorothy Briggs Lynch (free black)
children:
Maude Leonie Lynch (b. 1896, d. 1997)
George Lynch
Harold Lynch
Aubryn Lynch

relatives:
John Lynch (brother to William)
Dolly Briggs (daughter of Dorothy Lynch's brother, migrated to Trinidad)
George Babbs

So if you have come across these names or think they may be a realtion, give me a holla.

Thanks,

Jan

I never found a relationship link between my line and theirs, but there is another Lynch family line in Barbados who produced Louis Lynch - and he created a Secondary School in Barbados which still exists (I believe). There are still many Lynch's in Barbados.

My earliest known ancestor was a "free mulatto" Hamlet Mayers Lynch, whose father I believe to have been Hazel (or Hasel or Hassel or Hassell) Lynch of the white Irish Lynch merchant family in Bridgetown between 1715 and 1800. Hamlet's partner (I have never found a marriage record) was a "free negro woman" Minifred (also recorded as Menifred) Lynch.

From later family records I am led to believe that Hamlet was moderately wealthy... he had slaves and bought several who had the same names as his own family - we can only assume he was taking them out of slavery with another owner and providing them with a kind of freedom. There is a vague record of his buying one of these similarly-named slaves from a Barbadian owner Conrade Adams in military service and stationed in Guadeloupe.

Hamlet and his son, John Richard Lynch, are noted for signed petitions and being part of the political opposition in Barbados in favour of emancipation for the poor and the blacks in a day when a person had to own property - and be white - just to vote and/or to occupy any elected position.

A descendant of Hamlet Lynch and John Richard Lynch is James Alsop Lynch, another outstanding Barbadian who is listed somewhere as a cooper (barrel-maker), and started James A. Lynch and Company, which appears to have made him very wealthy. His son, James Challenor Lynch, was one of the founders of the Barbados Museum.

Apparently all of the white Irish Lynch families in the Caribbean - Jamaica, Barbados, Antigua, Montserrat, Nevis, St. Kitts (that I know of, possibly Grenada and Trinidad as well) - are all of the same family which originated in Galway, Ireland.

Let me see what else I can remember. Grama often talked about her father's estate and life on the estate. Not sure whether it was some kind farm or plantation. I wonder if land records can shed any light?

I remember her nephew was a prominent banker, Leary Lynch, who was murdered by his wife in Jamaica. This is an article on the case:


http://m.jamaicaobserver.com/mobile/new ... n_11225431


Only one of her brothers had children and with the death of Leary thus ended the rest of this Lynch branch. So the only descendants of this family now are her descendants here in Trinidad lol.

Sorry, no Leary in my family "hedge", either. But, apart from my direct line and many of the early ancestors, most of the names in the other branches of my family seem to have disappeared.

I have also been trying to contact the son of Louis Lynch, a prominent Barbadian after whom a Secondary school is named, but he does not return my emails (they don't bounce, either).

Please advise if you find anything else out... thanks much in advance.

I'm looking for any information about Angelina Lynch (born around 1859), who married a William Blackman in St Michael/Barbados in 1882, and her children.I'm also looking for info about William Blackman's parents and his siblings.

Hi Jim,

Just found out some info on my Lynch line. I always knew one of my great-grandmother's brothers went to work on building the Panama Canal (Harold I believe). But now I'm told the eldest brother (George) went to Cuba and the family never heard from him again. He went just before the revolution and it is believed he could not get out. No idea what happened to him.

So there may be a Lynch link in Cuba... amazing.

Hello There,

I am a Lynch descendant from Panama and I'm interested to see how far back I can go...

The only relative I can find info on is my great grandfather...

My great grandfather worked in the Canal Zone and started when he was 19 according to a 1930 US Census record I found that lists him as a "boarder" and "waiter" in the Hospital (presumably Gorgas). US records also show a "request for metal check issue" record that lists my great grandfather as having a birthdate of 12/01/1909. Comparing both records reveal that my grandfather may have been raised on the Canal Zone as the census record notes of his immigration to the zone from Barbados in 1911 (2 years old).

My great grandfather was also called "Briggs" but his name was Egbert Lynch on record. He went on to name his son (my grandfather) the same.

As I don't have much info on my great grandmother, I'm hoping to find some connections here...

TriniJan,

I have 11 George in my database, most listed for Barbados. Do you have a DOB for your George? Even approximate?

I am sure there is a Lynch link in Cuba. Che Guevera's middle name was Lynch.


Jblyn51,

Sorry, I have no Egbert in my Barbados-centric "hedge", but for at least 20 years I have been trying to find out where all my other family went to since 1804. My "brick wall" ancestor had seven children, I am sure three of the four males survived, but the only one I can follow through the records is my direct line to just one of them.

I believe hurricanes destroyed the earliest records, hence the "brick wall", but it seems to me I should be able to find SOMEbody who is related.

Onwards and upwards...

I see...

My great grandfather is where the line stops for me. I'd love to know exactly what country my family came from before coming to Barbados.

I've linked some documents here...

Born in 1911, 19 in the 1930 Census. You may have these already...

I don't know if he was a young man out working and boarding at the Hospital, but if you allow that people were getting together - or getting married - and having children as young as 16 back then there is at least one family he might fit into below... going by the Rules of the Census, if he lived at the Hospital then he would not have been included in the enumeration at home.

Good luck.

Jblyn51, that is interesting that your great-grandfather's nickname was Briggs. My great-great-grandmother was Dorothy Briggs and it's her son Harold who went to Panama to work. In fact the Briggs and Lynch families were close. My great-grandmother went to trinidad to stay at her uncle's. She was very close to her cousin Dolly Briggs.

I did find burial records for my great-great-grandmother . under St Michael parish records. Maybe it is something you can try

Then we have a miss this time... all of my Georges were born, baptised, christened or died before 1896.

Sorry.
