BEARD - St. Kitts

My family traces back to William Derrickson Beard, born 1794, who ran the Springfield Estate on St. Kitts. He married Caroline Burroughs and they had four children including William Daniel Beard who became a doctor. Not sure where he studied.

I can't trace any parents for William Derrickson Beard.

He spent a fleeting time in Bristol England but seems to have been resident in St. Kitts most of his life.

Trying to trace his parentage.

Some blogs suggest the Beards came from Wales. Not sure.

Any clues?
