Re: BURKE, ASHBY, VALVERDE - Barbados, Trinidad, Grenada

I am not finding my response in my Outbox or Sent Messages when I respond to private messages so it looks as though I need to figure out how this system works. I think the asterisk in the Will Summaries may indicate there is more in the actual will on the particular person than what has been extract...

Re: BURKE, ASHBY, VALVERDE - Barbados, Trinidad, Grenada

William Armstrong Ashby's will was proved shortly after his burial in 1866. His oldest child was about 14. There is no mention of his children. He left everything to his wife, Rebecca Keiling Ashby.

Re: BURKE, ASHBY, VALVERDE - Barbados, Trinidad, Grenada

I reckon so too. I remember my aunt telling me Millicent married a Burke and her daughter a Dewhurst. Result was a test cricketer. I suspect the cricketer could be George Alric Dewhurst of Trinidad but he never played test cricket. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Dewhurst_(cricketer) Maybe Milli...

Re: BURKE, ASHBY, VALVERDE - Barbados, Trinidad, Grenada

I cannot remember where I got Millicent's name from but I have her marrying a Burke and producing two children, Gordon and Dorothy. I think it must have been from my Aunt who is now deceased. I see the problem, Millicent can't be found in the on-line databases as the daughter of William Armstrong As...

Re: BURKE, ASHBY, VALVERDE - Barbados, Trinidad, Grenada

From 1654 Jews were forced to leave Brazil by Portugal. Aaron Navarro's mention of his business interests in Brazil suggests his family may have opted to stay on after 1654 but ultimately were forced to leave.

Re: BURKE, ASHBY, VALVERDE - Barbados, Trinidad, Grenada

That 3 volume set of wills is a work of art. It contains the extracts from all available wills up to about 1715. I use it a lot like the Census. Volume I is the earliest .... no mention of Valverde means possibly no Valverdes were present at the time. Volume II and III chronologically follow. Some f...

Re: BURKE, ASHBY, VALVERDE - Barbados, Trinidad, Grenada

There is also an Abraham Valverde death in 1706/7 in the list of Jewish deaths with no age who I think is the patriarch. That's why there is no Abraham Valverde on the 1715 census and only Jaell. No age is given in the record of his death. Abraham the F.M, I reckon is the second generation, the resu...

I'm using that book too Missed Elias as he isn't in the index but picked him (also Eleazar) up in the Sanders/Macrae Wills Fast Forward to 1822-1842!! I am finding Elizabeth Keiling Valverde a Free Coloured Woman as well as Rebecca and Mary Valverde also a Free Coloured women baptizing children. I a...

Re: BURKE, ASHBY, VALVERDE - Barbados, Trinidad, Grenada

oops!!

There is a Mrs. Rebecca Valverde who died in 1705 and a Rebecca Valverde (child) who died in 1682

First creates problems, second does only if child is older than 2 years.

Unfortunately no Valverde wills prior to 1715

Re: BURKE, ASHBY, VALVERDE - Barbados, Trinidad, Grenada

Too many names!!!

I think you may have got Elias from the baptisms and marriages up to 1800 database.

Eleazar is in there too as are David and Jacob and Abraham, but not Jaell.

Re: BURKE, ASHBY, VALVERDE - Barbados, Trinidad, Grenada

I have a record of a death of Abraham Valverde in 1706/7 so he would not appear in the 1715 census, however, his widow might if she were alive. The 1715 census has a Jaell Valverde, 1 woman age 50 and 2 girls aged 14 and 12. I think she is his widow and the two girls are his daughters, born before h...
