Re: YEARWOOD - Barbados

Hi Ricky, I was interested in the wills you have managed to find mentioning Yearwoods as witnesses. I have seen a few wills where Yearwoods have been witnesses or executors. I would be interested in seeing others. Do you have copies you could send me? It appears that it was a mans world back in Barb...

Re: YEARWOOD - Barbados

Connie88 I do not have your grandmother on my family tree and so I cannot make a connection at the moment. As you say we are almost certainly related a long way down the line. If you can get your great grandparents and great grandparents details from your grandmother I may be able to tie them in. Be...

Re: YEOWARD - Barbados

Your ancestors are almost certainly Yearwood's. Illiteracy was commonplace many years ago and names were often spelt out wrongly as they sounded. The Yearwood's were prolific in Barbados from the 17th Century. Started out as small time planters in St Lucy and spread throughout the island and into No...

Re: YEARWOOD - Barbados

My ancestors did have slaves. I am sorry to say that they are mentioned in many wills where they were left to relatives like other property. If you look at old planters wills almost all of them will mention slaves by name, but only the first name. Researching white Yearwood's in Barbados is made eas...

Re: YEARWOOD - Barbados

Carole, apologies for such a late response. I have not been on this site for some time. I do not have a record of Lucy Yearwood. You have probably already done this but if you go to the website http://www.familysearch.org and carry out a basic search on her name you will find details of her marriage...

YEARWOOD - Barbados

My family went to Barbados in the 17th century. The earliest record I have in my family tree is a William Yearwood, planter, from St Lucy, who died in 1685. On ancestry.co.uk there are other Yearwoods mentioned in wills in the 17th century as witnesess or in one case a Lt Col William Yearwood mentio...
