Occupation: sugar planter

Postby vichou » Wed Jun 13, 2012 2:42 am

HI there

On my grandfathers baptism record (1847 Hodges Bay, Antigua), it says his father was a "sugar planter".
Was a "sugar planter" usually a land owner? or a manager?
How could a man born in London in 1817, become a "sugar planter" in the West Indies in 1845?
I have baptism records for 2 children born, what other records can I expect to find? marriage? death? burial?

Any help please
