WESTERN - Barbados

Postby jambo » Thu Mar 14, 2013 12:10 am

Family story has it that Richard WESTERN was a sea captain who arrived from Ireland. No proof of this though. In 1800 he married Anna "Hannah" OWENS. Their children were Alice Anne Benjamin WESTERN (b~1806), William Benjamin WESTERN (b. ~1808), Mary Frances WESTERN (b. ~1810), and Sarah Elizabeth WESTERN (b. ~1814) presumably all Bridgetown.

Alice married Thomas HARRIS in 1835.

William married Sarah Frances WOODMAN in 1830.

Sarah married John W. OWENS in 1836.

William owned a flourishing saddler business but had problems with his partner and was left penniless. William and Sarah's children were Margaret Ann 1830, William Richard 1834 and Sarah Williamina 1836.

Margaret married an English soldier, Abraham Fry, and they were my great-great-grandparents. She taught at the school that the Governer's wife's opened (Lady Colebrooke).

Any info on the WESTERNs or the other families mentioned, or the school, please Jambo
