HE present Volume has been issued in spite of the unfavourable
conditions entailed by the great War. There has been no diminution
in the number of subscribers, the feeling being that, during the stress
and anxiety we all experience, it is a relief to occasionally turn one's
attention to some outside subject.
Beyond that there is the deeper motive of fostering the Imperial
spirit by reviving the past history of the Islands.
People in England ate only just beginning to realize the intense
patriotism of the Dominions and Colonies.
West Indians, in spite of official objection, insisted on sharing the
burden of the War, hence the formation of the British West Indies
In revising my List of Subscribers I have to deplore the death of
several old friends and contributors. Mr. DARNELL DAVIS, C.M.G.,
whom I first met in 1890, wrote that captivating book, The Cavaliers
and Roundheads of Barbados." His collection of books and papers,
bequeathed to the Royal Colonial Institute, was unfortunately lost at
sea by the piratical act of a German submarine.
DB. THoxAs of Nevis transcribed his Parish Register for me, the first
one to be printed. Major-General PEMBERTON was a keen genealogist,
and had visited the Islands to collect information first hand. Mr. LOTHROP
WITHINor ON, who was lost in the Lusitania, carried on much research
work both in London and the U.S.A. Mrs. YEAEWOOD was very interested
in Barbadian family history, and an enthusiastic collector of old-time
By the death of the Bisaor or BABAnos (just cabled) the Church
has lost one of its chief leaders. He had for years past collected a mass
of notes relating to the parochial history of the Island, which it is hoped
may be preserved.
We are greatly indebted to Miss NEMBHARD for the interesting
articles on Nembhard and Hibbert; to Mr. F. CTUDALI. for the
Marriages and Deaths from the "Columbian Magazine" of Jamaica;
to Mr. R. HOLWORTHY for his views of Vere, Jamaica; and to Mr. JOHN
BEOMLEY for his transcript of the Parish Register of St. Thomas,
Middle Island, St. Kitts, which appeared as a Supplement.
Mr. R. GLENcoss being on War Service, the wills of Nevis have been
unavoidably discontinued for the present.
I am glad to say that my volume of M.I. of Barbados was published
last year. A further one, comprising those of St. Kitts, Nevis, Mont-
serrat and Dominica is ready for the press, but the printing is deferred
on account of the War.
Of the first three volumes of this Magazine 200 copies were printed,
but only 100 copies of this present one.

Mr. F. Cundall forwards a full copy of the M.I. at Agualta Vale as follows:-
In a vault under this place I lie deposited by his own direction I the remains
of I Thomas Hibbert Esqre j late a Merchant in the town of Kingston I and
proprietor of this and the two adjoining estates. I He was the eldest son of Robert
& Margaret Hibbert I of Manchester in the county of Lancaster and Kingdom
of Great Britain | from whence he first arrived in the Island in 1734 j and after
residing in it with little interruption almost 46 years I died (unmarried) at this
estate 20th May 1780 1 in the 71st year of his age. I In the character of a
merchant he attained by that Truth and Honour I which distinguished all his
dealings, the first and most desirable rank I And while his persevering industry,
understanding, integrity and liberality of spirit I were crowned with deserved
success in the acquisition of fortune I enlarged benevolence, ingenuous manners I
and a mind replete with useful knowledge I secured to him respect, affection and
esteem I In early life and during arduous times I he took an active and interesting
part I in the public concerns of this Island I being called to, and executing with
fidelity and approbation I some of the highest and most honorable I civic offices
in its government I Thus equally respectable in public duty, as in private virtue I
the community at large I not less than his immediate friends I will long consider I
his loss with regret, his memory with veneration.

James Willymot conveyed the Manor of Kelshall to John Poynter, Master of

Hassell of Lincoln's Inn, on whose death it was sold. (Cussans' Herts," i., 132.)

I see that the contributor of the material about Swymmer of Jamaica appears
to be puzzled how Anthony Langley Swymmer died in 1740 and was party to a
deed in 1745. The explanation is that he has been misled by Lawrence Archer,
who, in his copy of the inscription in the St. Andrew Parish Church, puts
MDCCXL instead of MDCCLX. In the arms also he omits to state that the
cinquefoil is charged with ermine. (Note by Mr. F. Cundall.)

It is not known from which other colony the Doctor removed. It may have
been the Dutch Island of St. Eustatius. He called his estate Koningsburgh.
Search has been made at Konigsberg in East Prussia, but no trace found.

impossible for me to write or sign any other word, and not my Christian own
name Julia Georgina. Whatsoever deed, act or settlement should be shew (sic)
as from my hand bearing more than these names J. Rosaz," or, during the period

NOTES TO PEDIGREE.
1. DOCTOR NEMBHAID.
According to family tradition Dr. Nembhard was Dutch and descended from
a famous general; some say he was a natural son of Prince Eug6ne of Savoy,
who certainly was at the Hague from Nov. 1710 to Jan. 1711, regulating a
question of supplies. There is a great likeness between portraits of the Nemb-
hard family and those of Prince Eugene's ancestors, not so much to those of the

Jamaica Militia. Adjutant General, Col. Wm Ellis Nembhard 18 Dee. 1807.
(" Jamaica Almanack," 1810.)
William Ellis Nembhard died 11 Dec. 1829; his will was not proved until
15 Jan. 1836.
So much suspicion attached to this will on account of his wife Julia, who was
illiterate, being left sole executrix as well as legatee, that for long the Nembhard
family thought of disputing it. The Emancipation of the Slaves, however, had
brought them such losses that the idea was finally abandoned. Fifty years later
Madam de Rosaz, as she had then become, once more a widow, sought out the
Nembhard family, who in the interim had had no communication with her, and
expressed her wish to make a will restoring to them the money she had inherited
from her first husband. This intention was frustrated by a man who, though no
connection of hers, took upon himself to advise her in her affairs. A will was
made under his direction in which her property was left between himself and her
relations (small farmers) in Ireland, with the result that after her death General
Nembhard brought an action for undue influence against this individual. The
preparations for the trial dragged on for some years at enormous expense, and
the case having become a triangular one owing to the Irish relations having
turned against the other legatee and intervening, it seemed likely that the fortune
in question, then no more than about 30,000, would be dissipated in costs.
The case was finally compromised without having come into court, General
Nembhard receiving the lion's share of ten thousand guineas.

Henry Nembhard became very wild and extravagant at College. He was
refused by Miss Rowe on this account, and taking her refusal to heart he
disappeared about the time of his father's death, and for some fifteen years none
of the family knew what had become of him. In 1838 his sister-in-law Elizabeth
Nembhard, nee Brooks, while making a short tour in the north of France,
accidentally found him imprisoned for debt in a French town, where she stopped
to change horses. She paid his debt, a very small one, brought him to England,
and reconciled him to Miss Rowe, who in spite of her refusal had been faithful
to him. They were married, and Henry, who by this time had quite sobered
down, took Holy Orders. He died greatly respected and beloved.
10. WIILuM aND EVA NEMBHARD.
Owing to the depreciation of all Jamaican property, it would have been
advisable to sell the Hounslow and Kensington estates on the elder William
Nembhard's death in 1833, but owing to the tenor of his will this was impossible
until 1852, when his daughter Eva came of age. By that time the estates them-
selves had greatly lost in productiveness, and so far from being a source of income
Mrs. Nembhard and her son had to make a yearly allowance for their upkeep,
a severe tax, especially on the young officer. When at last it was legally
permissible to sell them, one fetched no more than 100, while for the other not
even money could be obtained. It was parted with for a hundred head of cattle,
which sold again for about 80. Thus ended the connection of the Nembhard
family with Jamaica.

BRODBELT FAMILY OF JAMAICA: CONNECTION BETWEEN
BRODBELTS OF NEVIS AND BRODBELTS OF JAMAICA.
7 Duke Street,
Through the courtesy of Mr. W. A. Lindsay, Windsor Herald, I learnt that
Francis Rigby Brodbelt of Spanish Town recorded his pedigree in the Heralds'
College, descent being shewn from his grandfather Lawrence Brodbelt of the
Island of Nevis (buried 1726), who married Mary Ann, daughter of
of Poictiers in France, and father Daniel Brodbelt of Jamaica, who
married Anna Maria (Rigby). This of course immediately identifies Daniel
Brodbelt of Jamaica with the family in Nevis.
Daniel Brodbelt was twice married, his first wife being Charlotte Elizabeth
and his second wife Anna Maria Rigby. The following is taken from
the Register of Baptisms for the parish of St. Catherine, vol. i., p. 70, under date
10 May 1753:-
" 1736 July 2 John son of Daniel and Charlotte Brodbelt.
1738 Dec. 9 Charlotte daughter of Daniel and Charlotte Eliz. Brodbelt.
1742 Dec. 4 Anna Maria daughter of Daniel and Anna Maria Brodbelt.
1746 Oct. 9 Francis Rigby son of Daniel and Anna Maria Brodbelt."
NTE.-May 10, 1753. Registered from Mr. B.'s family Bible and sworn to
by Daniel Brodbelt before Wm. Wynter, Esq.
(Signed) Jomw VENw, Rector."
The above John Brodbelt married Elizabeth, daughter of Colonel William
Virgo and Mary his wife (bur. Roslin Castle Estate, Trelawny, at. 67, Lawrence
They had issue, as far as I know, John Spence Brodbelt, Frances Virgo
Brodbelt, Charlotte Brodbelt, and Mansfield Littlejohn Brodbelt.
The will of John Brodbelt, dated 9 February 1795, was proved on 19 June
1795 (Libro 61, fo. 160), and he mentions therein his brother Francis Rigby
Brodbelt and his son Mansfield Litteljohn Brodbelt, and his daughter Charlotte
Anna Maria Brodbelt married Edward Aldred (not Eldred). Francis Rigby
Brodbelt married Ann Gardner, daughter and coheir of Thomas Penoyre.
1803, July 25. At Spanish-town, J., the Hon. Francis Rigby Brodbelt, esq.
to Miss Milward, dan. of John Gardner M. esq. of the same place. (" G.M." for
1804, p. 277.)
With regard to the issue of John Brodbelt, reference is made to two of these,
ante, II., in my note on the Brooks family.
I have a good deal of information about the family in Jamaica, and if you
desire further details I shall be glad to send you same, so as to make a complete
history with the Nevis branch, and if you can send me some details and sketch
pedigree of the Nevis branch I shall be extremely obliged, as I have no details
There is also a family of Brodbelts near Liverpool with whom I have been
corresponding, but have not yet been able to trace any information. They trace
descent from Robert Brodbelt, Perpetual Curate of Bispham, near Blackpool,
Whilst in England in 1908 I stayed with Mr. Justice and Lady Eve at
Yarner in Devonshire. Lady Eve has a small collection of old tea sets, and,
shewing me these one day, I recognized one as belonging to the Brodbelt family.
It was made by Chamberlain of Worcester; the cups and saucers are ornamented
with gold tracery, and the crest, A double-headed Eagle displayed sable," is in
the centre. The plates are of the same pattern, but the centre is ornamented with
arms and crest, the arms being: Argent, three bendlets wavy Or"; there are
apparently faint traces of "gules" between the bendlets, so possibly the arms were
originally correctly blazoned, "gules" being washed off in course of time to
argent. Lady Eve kindly gave me a specimen of each, and I learnt from her that
this tea-set was purchased many years ago by my grand-uncle at a Penoyre sale
in Hertfordshire, and was given to her by him.
There was also another Brodbelt family in Jamaica (see p. 73 of my sketch
pedigrees). You canr add there that Henrietta married Rev. Thos. Coxeter,
Rector of Kingston, and that they had issue a son William Mansell Coxeter.

Court of Cfthncerp, anttiua.
These papers, which are stored in Old Ordnance vaults in 8t John's Town,
are of considerable interest, comprising as they do various law suits -in the
government of the Leeward Islands. Apart from a few early fragments dated
1685 and 1687, the series seems fairly complete from 1716, The Court was
constituted as follows:-
"At a Court of Chancery 13 Nov. 1716 Present H. E. Walter Hamilton,
Capt. Gen.' Chancellor, The Hon.- Edward Byam, Lt Govr John Hamilton Esq.,
Edward Warner Esq., Vail: Morris Esq., John ffry Esq., Archibald Cochran Esq.,

Joseph Parley the yr, petition that Joseph Farley the Elder father of the said
Joseph Farley the Yr made his will on 20 Sept.t 1779 and gave all residue of his
estate to his two sons Joseph Parley now deceased and your orator Henry
Farley, and d. 10 Sept. 1779 leaving a personal estate of 10,000 c. and Joseph
Parley the Yr married Jane Nesbitt Johnson dau. of Lewis Johnson of Georgia
Esq. and made his will 2 Jan. 1778 in which he named his wife Jane, his dau.
Sarah and his son Joseph, and d. 11 Dec. 1780 at Charles Town S. Carolina and
Joseph Parley the son d. in his father's lifetime and Sarah is the only child, and
administration of the estate of the.last mentioned Joseph Farley with his will was
granted to Wm. Smith of Antigua gent. & Mary his wife, Charles Kerr and Alex.
Willock Esq., the said Mary being sister to the testator Joseph Parley the yr.
Pray for settlement of the estate. No date.
Henry son of Joseph and Sarah was bapt. 1767 at St. John's, but it is uncertain how this
branch is connected with the others. Simon, in his will dated 1756, mentions his lands in
Virginia and N. Carolina, so it is probable thit the family was often away from Antigua, thus
accounting for the absence of certain entries in the parish registers.
t There is some error here, as his death is given on the 10th.

C. 1684, and that year leaving for England. Col. James Walker was M. of the
C. of Jamaica 1686-90, and left in the latter year for England. These two may
be identical, because many settlers of Nevis removed to Jamaica. Dorothy was a

HUGGINS OF NEVIS.
In the Carib." of April 1895, p. 275, appeared a reprint of a tract entitled:
"A Plain Statement of the Motives which gave rise to the Public Punishment of
several Negroes belonging to the Estate called Pinneys on the 23rd Jan. 1810;
and of the Serious Consequences resulting from it. By T. J. C., President
of Nevis, 1811."
Mr Tobin having attacked in print Edward Huggins Esq. the President,
Mr Tho. John Cottle proceeds to defend his character. The parents of Mr
Huggins were poor & he lost his father when an infant. He learnt planting
under John Richardson Herbert. He in 1782 bought 'Corams' from Pinney &
Tobin. Being successful, & with his wife's handsome fortune, he in April 1789
bought lands of John Butler and his sisters. In 1799 he bought the estate
of Cofiley Saunders. He is father of 5 children. In Aug. 1809 he bought
Pinneys," of which Mr. Tobin's father was attorney. Mr. Peter Tho. Huggins
was placed by his father on 'Pinneys.' The negros there were insubordinate
so his father seized the ringleaders and flogged them publicly in Town. He was
tried by the Court of K.B. and C.P. for cruelty & acquitted.
The above Magazine had a very short existence. It was edited by Miss Frieda
Cassin, printed and published by G. A. Uphill at Antigua. Six monthly parts,
April to Sept. inclusive, were issued, pp. 289, and the publication ceased with
Miss Cassin's death. A copy is in the Library of St. John's, Antigua.

The following inscriptions may interest you. Leaning against a wall at the
Vere Estates Co.'s wharf at Salt River, still awaiting erection over the mortal
remains of the late S. B. Lamont, M.D., stands a marble gravestone bearing the
following inscription, a queer mixture of English and Latin:-
To the Memory of
S. B. Lament M.D.
Obiit 23rd December 1828
Etatis suse 25
This tomb is erected
by his disconsolate parent.
Someone seems to have failed in carrying out the intentions of the "discon-
solate parent," perhaps the conveyance of a marble tombstone up the mountain
tracks to Whitney was placed against the credit of the memory of the deceased
and shewed a debit balance.
Another interesting relic lies on its side in the cellar under the old disused
Customs House at Salt River, now rapidly falling to pieces, and takes the form
of a marble tombstone, adorned at the top with a& urn half shrouded with the
usual pall. The inscription is a lengthy one, and runs as follows:-
Sacred to the memory of
R. J. Langrishe Esq.
Lieutenant of the Royal Navy
and for nearly two years a
Special justice in and over this
Island. He departed this life
on the 14th day of January 1836
aged 32 years. As a magistrate
he was zealous and impartial, as a man
just and honorable as a husband
and father tender and affectionate.
His widow and two children are
left to mourn their irreparable loss.
This stone is placed over the remains
of the deceased by his sorrowing
friends in Clarendon as a proof
of their regard for his inflexible integrity.
There again history is silent; was it a case of non-payment of import duty by
the sorrow-stricken friends that has made the stone a silent witness to the frailty
of human regard ?
