Barbados and America
By David L. Kent
*This is the only official source for new publications of this book.
The basic source book for genealogical or historical research in colonial Barbados. Invaluable for its 1715 census transcript, available nowhere else. Essential for colonial American ties to England.
From the prospectus: "The 1715 census of the entire white population anticipates by more than a century the familiar format of later English and American returns, providing evidence of familial relationships in this early period."
Includes research guide to Barbadian records, maps, 13,000 every-name index. The introduction includes a colony-by-colony survey, referencing several dozen families with Barbadian connections, from New Hampshire to South Carolina.
If you cannot identify your family's place of origin in England, this book is likely to be the key to solving that problem. Favorably reviewed by Milton Rubincam in the National Genealogical Society Quarterly.
The book includes a continuation of John Camden Hotten's celebrated Original Lists, and has been favorably reviewed by J. S. Handler, the authority on Barbadian historical research, as well as by the Barbados Historical Society and Museum.
