Hi, Sargasso Man,
In 1768, Hope Branch married an Alexander Barclay at St Michael, Barbados. Being childless, they adopted the orphan son of her (either) brother or uncle (name unknown)as he was orphaned in the great hurricane of 1780 on the day of his birth. They called him Alexander Barclay Branch. He became a midshipman in the RN, and had a fairly lively career, dying at Greenwich of asiatic cholera. The names "Alexander Barclay" have been used many times by various families in Barbados, so he must have been well known.
Regards, twiglet
