Antigua. In Chancery. To H. Ex'cy W. M. Burt, Capt.-Gen. etc.
Humbly complaining that your orators Thady Flaherty. and I.trry Webb
formerly of Antigua but now of Great Britain, Esq" and Tho. Oliver and Michael
Lovell of London, merchants and co-partners that by an Ind're of 26 April 1744
made between your orator Thady Flaherty of Antigua, Esq., and Elis. his wife,
relict of Tho. Stephens 1. of sd I., Esq., Ex'trir of his will and sole residuary
legatee of the one part and Nath. Gilbert the Elder of the sd I., Esq., of the other
part Nath. Gilbert granted to them one annuity of 750 st. charged on his lands,
houses and slaves, and would pay all legacies and debts owing against the est. of
Tho. Stephens, deceased, and Eliz. the wife of your orator is now long time dead
and very considerable sums for arrears of the annuity are due and by another
Ind're dated 25 May 1744 between your orator Harry Webb of Antigua, Esq., of
the one part and Nath. Gilbert of the other in consideration of the grant of a
dwelling house Nath. Gilbert confirmed to Harry Webb one annuity or rent
charge of 200 at. and considerable sums for arrears are due and Nath. Gilbert
on 25 April 1761 was indebted to the house of Richard Oliver the elder of London,
merchant, now deceased, for plantation supplies the sum of 3205, and on that
day Richard Oliver the elder being grown old and infirm took into partnership
his son Richard Oliver the yr. and Nath. Gilbert had died on 1 April 1761 and
made his will devising the residue of his estate to [fap] . and Jas. Brebner
and Stephen Blizard and Fra. Farley in trust as his Ex'ors, and the will was
proved before the Ordinary of Antigua and Bob. Bannister and William Lightfoot,
Jas. Brebner, Stephen Blizard and Fra. Farley did act as Ex'ors and they placed
Nath. Gilbert the yr. who was the eldest son and heir-at-law and entitled to the
reversion ll;u:01 the estates to manage them (various letters between the parties
to be inserted here are missing from the suit) and R1 and R1 Oliver opened an
account in their books with the sd Nath. Gilbert the yr. and debited him with the
3205 and they supplied the trust estates with all necessaries and paid the
annuities and Nath. Gilbert remitted the produce until 81 May 1764 when 8658
was owing and on that day Richard Oliver the elder died whereby the partnership
was terminated but as the house was of long standing and the business advantageous
Richard Oliver the yr. took as a partner your orator Tho. Oliver, and Richard and
Tho. Oliver still continued to pay large sums for the estates and for the support
of the other children and they never pretended to transact business with Nath.
Gilbert the yr. on his own private account but as agent for the trustees. 8721
was due on 25 June 1771 on which day the partnership of Richard and Tho.
Oliver expired and Richard Oliver retired from business and Tho. Oliver then took
into partnership Michael Lovell and they continued to supply the estates and pay
Son-in-law and nephew.


thb annuities and Nath. Gilbert made considerable payments towards the discharge
of the debts until his death in the latter end of 1773 when there was owing 6924,
and the trustees James Brebner (who had then changed his name to James Gordon),
Stephen Blizard and Francis Farley took upon themselves the management of the
estates [Letters noted to be inserted but missing] and your orators continued
supplies and paid the annuities until 12 Sept. 1778 and they kept their accounts
open with the surviving trustee James Gordon until 25 June 1780 when they
finally closed them and there was then due 8055 st. and the said . died long
since and Stephen Blizard d. in Nov. 1777 and Francis Farley died in April 1779,
whereby Jas. Gordon is sole surviving trustee and the crops have been so incon-
siderable that it would be impossible to pay your orators otherwise than by a sale
which would be injurious to the annuitants and other creditors and legatees and
they have proposed to James Gordon that they were willing to forbear provided
security be given and the real charges paid but he refuses and means in future to
reside in Great Britain but is willing under the direction of this court to consent
to a judgment and that the produce be remitted to their house to be applied in
the first place to the discharge of the current expenses, next to the discharge of
the annuities, lastly to the discharge of the demand of your orators. The case is
now submitted to this court for settlement, as may seem most equitable and
beneficial to the parties. (Abstract from 35 fo. sheets, Antigua Registry. Ed.)

in January 1784, and was the son of Maurice Berkeley Esq- by Miss Tobin of

branches of the ancient and illustrious House of Berkeley of the County of
Gloucester-married in the year 1732* Miss Tobin, a daughter of the very
respectable family of Tobin of the Island of Nevis, and with his Lady came out
to the West Indies, v hen he did not long encounter the climate. He died leaving
two sons Henry and Maurice. Henry was the father of seven sons and three
daughters, of whom Thomas is the youngest of the sons. Maurice died unmarried.
The high character for honor and integrity upheld in this colony by Henry
Berkeley is universally acknowledged by all its inhabitants, and this humble
memento is offered by his son as a tribute of gratitude to his memory for having
shown so virtuous an example to his posterity.
Dear Sir.-It is evident the date on the Tablet 1782 for the marriage of M. B.
Jr. with Miss Tobin is wrong. I enclose you extract from old Bible, also from a
letter of Edward Hussey, Esq. of Scotney Castle, Kent (he is the descendant of
Those. Hussey of Burwash who married on 8th Oct. 1747 "Ann, only dau. of
M. B. Jr by his first wife, Anne Callow ").
You will notice that my grandfather refers to his ancestor as "Henry" B.
not "Maurice."

Cabcs in barbabos in 1718.
Thomas Chalkley, a Quaker merchant and preacher, during one of his numerous
voyages to the W.I., stayed in Barbados for 13 weeks in 1717-1718, and thus
describes a visit to certain caves:-
"I saw several curiosities in nature in this island . .One to the leeward
part of the island, which is called the spout, sends up a vast body of water into
the air, occasioned by a great cavity in the rocks under the water, which may be
seen in calm weather, when the sea is low; but when the wind blows, a great body
of water being pent in a large hollow place, it forces it up into the air, sometimes
ten, fifteen, and twenty yards high, Iccording as the strength of the wind is more
or less, and makes a report like a cannon or thunder a great way off. I believe I
have seen it ten or twelve miles out at sea.
"I was also at a place called Oliver's cave, which we got to with some difficulty
in going down the steep and craggy rocks. There is on the outward part next
the sea, a very large vaulted place, in the form of a half circle, about one hundred
feet high, as near as I could guess.
"In this large vault, behind a rock, is the mouth of the cave, not the height of
a man at the first entrance; after one is in a few yards, one may walk upright
comfortably, the bottom being pretty plain and smooth for about a hundred yards,
and then we came into a large cave which is formed archwise, and about ten or
fifteen yards high, as we thought, being much higher in the middle than the sides,
but almost as regular as if it had been done by art, which we beheld with admira-
tion, by the help of wax candles, and other lights, that we made and carried for
that purpose." (Journal, 1791, 80 p. 94.)
Chalkley d. of fever in Tortola 4th day of the 9th month 1741 and was buried
in a piece of ground since given to Friends for a burial place and on which a
meeting-house is built, by John Pickering the Governor, the latter and his wife
Dorcas having both adopted Quaker principles. (Journal, p. 330.)
In Mayo's Survey of 1717 "The Spout" is marked adjoining Yearwood's
plantation. Hughes in his Natural History of the Island published m 1750, after
alluding to the spout (p. 292) devotes a chapter (pp. 293-8) to the "animal
flower," and gives an illustration (plate 24) of the innermost basin of the above
cave where it is found. In recent years a safer and easy entrance has been made
from the land side.

A sketch in water-colour. At the bottom is written: "A Prospect of the
Uper side of a Bridge formed by nature over the Rio d'Ora its whole height is
near 60 feet heigth the Arch near 50 feet width at the bottom between 20 and 30
feet its thickness about 15 feet, Dec. 6, 1767." On the back is noted:-" One of
the corresponding Drawings is signed L.B. in Ld Seaford's possession." fo. 219.
The two following letters, fos. 88 and 36, from Lord Seaford relate to the
Audley Square,
MM onday, May 11, 1885.
My dear Sir,
I received your note as I was going out to dinner yesterday. I am very
sorry I was not at home when you did me the favour to call. The Paintings,
which you saw, were done by Barrak for my Father from sketches taken on the
spot, by an Artist whom my Father employed for several years in making Drawings
of natural History. I do not know the subject of more than one of the Land-
scapes-that marked No. 6-which is a View of my Estate, Montpelier Old
Works . .
Very truly Yours,

Audley Square, May 4, 1843.
My dear Long,
Se I return your Drawings (which are very cleverly done) and send at
the same time (in case you should have any curiosity to see them) the original
sketches of your Noe. 2 and 8 (evidently by the same hand as your No. 1) . .
You will observe the date of the Sketches is 1766 and my recollection of the oil
paintings goes back beyond 1780.
Ever truly Yours,

John Ellis father of Lord Seaford in his will dated in 1781 writes: 'Whereas
for several years past Luke Robins of S Mary's hath been employed collecting
and painting subjects of natural history he shall be engaged until 1785 at a salary
not exceeding 200 a year and such collection I give to my son John.'

Crtnitp, Salmetto oaint, &t. 3ittt.
This parish is one of the original English ones and lies on the leeward coast
between St. Thomas, Middle Island, on the west, and the old French parish of
St. George's, Basseterre, on the east.
French River and Frontier Gutt, marked in Baker's Survey of 1753, formed
the ancient boundary line between the two nations, one mile west of which was
an English fort at Palmetto Point.
Bloody Point, at the mouth of Pelham River, was the scene of a fierce
encounter in the seventeenth century, graphically described and illustrated by
Du Tertre.
The church, distant about four miles from Basseterre, is small and unin-
teresting, and stands north of the high road, which runs along the south side of
the churchyard.
In the latter are several ancient tombs, of which the inscriptions were all
transcribed in 1914 by the Editor.

Aerial of 3ohn 3arbot, at t. Crtetoper's
in the Jtest bites, for the murder of
Ojatt. tiltle, csq.
(From "The London Magazine," August 1758.)
As the trial, condemnation, and execution of John Barbot, attorney at law, for
the murder of Matthew Mills, Esq; in the island of St. Christopher's, has of late
been a subject of conversation, and contains some very extraordinary circum-
stances, we shall give our readers a short account of it, beginning with as exact
an history of the persons chiefly concerned as we can collect.
Matthew Mills, Esq; was a rich planter of the island of St. Christopher's, a
gentleman of a general good character, and highly esteemed in that island; and
he was, it seems, a considerable creditor upon the estate of Dr. James Webbe,
who had always been a great friend to Mr. Barbot, and whose estate in the island
of Nevis, was by order of court to be sold at a public sale, for the satisfaction of
his creditors; at which sale both Mr. Mills and Mr. Barbot were present and
nearly concerned, the former to push on the sale, in order to recover what was
due to him, and the latter to prevent its taking effect, or to become the purchaser
in trust for his friend Dr. Webbe, who had very ill will to have his estate sold to
a stranger, because he had a rich uncle upon the island, on whom he hoped to
prevail to pay his debts and preserve the estate, which he has since done.
John Barbot was born in London, and was the son of an eminent and substan-
tial silversmith, who, it seems, is still alive. At 14 he was bound apprentice to an
attorney at London for five years, and after having served his time, he went to
Antigua in 1746, as clerk to a gentleman of the law there. About three or four
years ago, he got himself admitted as an attorney at St. Christopher's, and fell
very soon into considerable practice there; so that before this unlucky affair
happened, he had got about 8001. before-hand; and as he had always been
employed by Dr. Webbe and his family, he was prevailed on by the doctor to set
up as the purchaser of his estate at the sale, which he was enabled to do, by a
gentleman's undertaking to endorse his bills for the third part of the price, as that
part of the price was to be immediately deposited in good bills of exchange, by the
conditions of sale; and as Mr. Mills and he had opposite interests to pursue at
the sale, this brought on the quarrel between them.
What sort of person of a man, or what age, Mr. Mills was, we have not heard;
but Mr. Barbot is said to have been a man of a small size, but sprightly, and
about, or not much above 25 years of age, when this affair happened.
He was tried at St. Christopher's, Jan. 5, 1753, and charged with having
feloniously and of malice aforethought murdered Matthew Mills, Esq; at Frigate-
bay in that island, on Sunday, November 19, about 5 o'clock in the morning, by
giving him with a pistol loaded with powder and leaden bullets, one mortal wound,
upon the right side, between the two last false ribs, and near the back; and the
witnesses were as follows:
Peter Carew swore, that at the sale of Bridgwater's (Dr. Webbe's) estate,
Nov. 7, he heard the prisoner say to the deceased, he expected to be treatedlike a
gentleman, or, he did not treat him like a gentleman.
Thomas Mills.-That at the said sale, upon the prisoner's objecting to the
conditions of sale, the deceased said, Mr. Barbot, the conditions of sale are very
fair; why will you cavil about them ? Upon which the prisoner said, Sir, I
expect to be treated like a gentleman. And the deceased replied, Sir, I shall
always treat you and all mankind as such. And he gives good reasons for
believing, that after the sale the deceased never saw the prisoner, till the morning
he was killed.


Andrew Armour.-That some time between the 3d and 7th of November, the
prisoner said to him, that Mr. Mills had treated him cruelly, and in such a manner
as ought never to be forgiven. And that he believed the prisoner meant
Mr. Matthew Mills; and never heard that before that time he had any quarrel
with Mr. Thomas or Mr. William Mills, nor did the prisoner then tell him in what
manner Mr. Mills had behaved to him, to occasion his saying so to him.
Patience Dorset.-That on the king's birth-day (Nov. 10) as she was going
into Mr. M'Cabee's tavern (in St. Christopher's) she heard the prisoner say to
two men he was talking with, there is a certain gentleman in this island, that
within a fortnight he would either kill or be killed by. But did not know, nor
had ever seen either of the men he was talking to.
Dr. James Webbe.-That at the aforesaid sale, he heard the prisoner say, we
will be bound by these conditions as far as the law can bind us and no farther;
and that the marshal had no right to make any terms of sale. That he heard the
deceased say, we will have no schoolboys play. That the prisoner purchased the
estate at his request. That the prisoner and he were intimate. And after this
being asked thus: Did you ever hear the prisoner mention any thing of satis-
faction or ill treatment ? Without objecting to the question, he answered, never;
and afterwards being asked thus: Did the prisoner never say anything to you on
the subject of the dispute that had happened at the sale of Bridgwater's estate ?
He, without objecting answered, no, he never did. The doctor confessed, that the
prisoner did, on Nov. 18, in the evening, write, execute, and deliver to him a deed
or writing attested by three witnesses, but said he did not know whether it was
his will or no, nor did the prisoner then inform him of his being a legatee in it;
whereas the doctor had said in his examination before the judges of the island of
Nevis, which was read in court, that the prisoner had that evening made his will,
and informed him that he was a legatee. The doctor further said, that on the
18th at night, the prisoner went to bed at his, the doctor's, house, and that on the
19th in the morning he saw the prisoner riding up to his, the doctor's, house, on
one of his, the doctor's, horses, and his, the doctor's, negro boy along with him:
That he then had on a whitish coat, a silver-laced hat, and a dark-coloured waist-
coat; and that about the same time the prisoner's negro boy brought a red trunk
to his house, in which the prisoner used to carry his things. The doctor likewise
said, that at his desire, the prisoner and he, upon Nov. 12, fired several times at a
mark, with a pair of Mrs. Dasent's pistols, which had brass barrels and silver
mounting, and he believed to be the same with those shewn to him in court. That
on the 20th Mrs. Daeent missed them, and he helping her to search for them,
found them under the bed in a room where stood a red trunk, which he believed
to be the trunk that the prisoner's boy had brought to his house the morning of
the 19th. That he saw the trunk opened: That there was a coat and waistcoat
in it which were moist: That he did not on the Saturday night, the 18th, send
his boy or any of his horses out on any errand: That the night between Saturday
and Sunday the 19th was a very boisterous night; and that from the time he
spoke to the prisoner on Saturday night, and the time he saw him riding up to
the house in the morning, he believed, he might have been at St. Christopher's
and back again.
The witnesses to the will were then called, who swore they witnessed a deed
written and executed by the prisoner, Nov. 18, at night, but could not be positive
it was a will.
Thomas Hobson and his sister living on Bridgwater estate swore that on
Saturday night, Nov. 18, about midnight, Dr. Webbe's boy came to their house
on one of the doctor's hores, about midnight, and said he had been round the
island looking for his master. That after putting up his horse who was wet, he
stayed there all night: That about 8 o'clock next morning a little gentleman in
a white coat and silver-laced hat came there, asked for Pope, the boy's name, and
the moment he saw him, bid him saddle the horse: That as soon as he was saddled,
after asking the boy the nearest way to Dr. Webbe's house, he mounted and rode


that way: That he came towards the bay, and that the prisoner was the very
John M'Kenley swore that Nov. 19, about 5 o'clock in the morning, a negro
boy rushed into his chamber and cried out, O Lord, master make haste and come
down,for my master is fighting with sword and pistols, with a gentleman that is
come from Nevis. That the boy got presently again upon his master's horse,
galloped down, and he followed on foot. That he found the gentleman just
expired, therefore asked the boy who had killed his master, and that he told him
it was Barbot, who was just gone off in a canoe. That upon going down to the
seaside, he saw a canoe with four oars and a paddle making very fast from the
shore, about 50 yards off, with some person in white sitting in the stern of the
canoe, but did not know who it was. That the deceased had on his great coat
and his gloves: That his pistols were in the holsters on his horse, and his sword
some distance from him in the scabbard, with the belt wrapt round the hilt.
William Johnson being then called, his being sworn was objected to, because
he had been convicted and whipped at Montserrat for petty larceny. Answered,
by the prosecutor's council, You must produce the record of the conviction.
Replied for the prisoner, that they did not know of his being to be produced as a
witness till the day before yesterday, so that they had not time to procure the
record, but would prove it by witnesses. But this not being admitted, Johnson
was sworn and said, that in his passage from Nevis to St. Christopher's, Nov. 19,
about six o'clock in the morning, a canoe with four oars and a sail passed by him,
in which was the prisoner, dressed in a white coat, a laced hat, and a dark
coloured waistcoat: That it seemed coming from Frigate-bay, and was standing
for Nevis; and that as he could then see the whole way between the two, he
could say there was then no other canoe in the channel.
Thomas Wilson, Esq., swore that Nov. 19 this Johnson came to him with a
letter from Mr. Misset of Montserrat. That upon his telling Johnson of
Mr. Mills being killed, and that it was supposed by Mr. Barbot. Barbot, said he,
why I met him going in a canoe to Nevis this morning.
Jasper Thomas.-That, Nov. 19, between six and seven in the morning, he
saw Mr. Cribbe's canoe, with Mr. Halburd's Peter, and Mr. Deverade's Joe in it,
land just under Lowland church, and seemed to have come from the salt-ponds.
That the instant it struck the shore, the prisoner, who had on a silver-laced hat
and whitish coat, jumped out, and after him a little negro boy with a little red
trunk on his head: And that both went towards the town.
John Thomas, the son, swore to much the same effect with his father.
William White swore, that, Nov. 19, he saw the prisoner in the morning,
walking up the road that leads to Bridgewater's estate, and believed he came from
the bay: That he was dressed in a brown coat and a laced hat; and that he was
sure it was the prisoner, and that he was dressed in a brown coat.
Edward Bridgwater.-That, Nov. 19, between nine and ten in the morning, he -
saw the prisoner riding over Gruff's gut, the nearest way to Dr. Webbe's, on a
horse of the doctor's.
John Cribbe.-That, Nov. 17, the prisoner hired his canoe to carry some
letters to St. Kitt's, and the canoe returned the next day in the afternoon. That
the negroes belonging to her, then took her to go a fishing, as he understood, and
he did not see them again till the 19th about eight o'clock in the morning, soon
after which he asked Peter, what luck To which he answered, poor luck; and
looking very thoughtful and melancholy, said he was troubled; for that he-had
been at St. Kitt's with Mr. Barbot, who, he was afraid, had done a great deal of
mischief, for, he believed, he had killed Mr. Mills: That it was about ten o'clock
in the morning he had this discourse with Peter; and that he had not till then
heard of Mr. Mills being killed.
Thomas Quin.-That he was sent from St. Kitt's in pursuit of the prisoner:
That he did not arrive at Nevis till about eleven o'clock, and that he was sure
he was the first that brought the news of Mr. Mills being killed to Nevis,


Mrs. Frances Dasent and Joseph Herbert, Esq., confirmed what Dr. Webbe had
said about finding the pistols; but said there was nothing in the trunk but a
brown waistcoat and a black pair of breeches; and Mr. Herbert added, that
finding them wet, he put his tongue to the waistcoat, and found it salt, from
which he concluded, it must have been wet with salt water.
Dr. Hamilton and Mr. Edwards swore that, Nov. 19, they were sent for to
view the body of the deceased, and found he had been wounded by a ball from
some firearm: That the ball had entered the right side at a place which they
could not describe better than by drawing a straight line directly from the pap
four inches downwards, and then carrying it four inches towards the back. That
upon opening the body, they found the ball had entered between the two last
false ribs, and splintered one of them, and had penetrated the body obliquely
from the right to the left side, which was the cause of his death. That they did
not think the deceased could have received such a wound if he had been standing
in a posture of defence, because the ball took its course towards the forepart of
the left side.
Mr. Walter Pringle and Mr. Samuel Baker swore that, Nov. 19, when they
came into the room where the deceased's body was, they called for his pistols,
which'somebody brought to them. They were screw-barrel pistols, and the same
then shewed to theif. That they examined the pistols, and in one they found
neither powder nor ball, nor in the other any powder, but only a ball sticking in
the barrel. That there was not the least stain of burnt powder, either about the
cock or any where else, which nust have been if they had been lately fired, nor
did either of them smell as if lately fired out of. That upon examining the
deceased's cloaths, they found upon the right flap of his coat a stain of dry
powder and the same upon the inside of his great coat. And Mr. Baker added,
that he put his little finger into the barrel of that one of the pistols which had
the ball in it, and there came off upon his finger a yellowish rusty dirt.
Mr. Herbert being again called, swore that a little while after the deceased's
body was brought to Mr. Colhoun's house he searched his pockets, and found in
his breeches pockets three bullets.
The prisoner then came upon his defence, and after making a very handsome
and a very artful speech to the court, he called his witnesses, one of whom was
Mr. William Julius, one of the coroner's inquest at St. Kitt's upon the body of
the deceased, who swore, that when Johnson was examined before them, he said,
that he believed it was Mr. Barbot whom he saw in the canoe, but could not
swear positively to him, for he was a musket-shot off.
And another was Mansell Wilkes, who swore, that ever since he had known John-
son, he had always born a bad character, and that he had reckoned him a bad man.
The prisoner likewise called several witnesses to prove, that on Nov. 10, the
king's birth-day, he was during the whole day at Nevis; but his witnesses differed
among themselves as to the day, and the prosecutors afterwards brought three
gentlewomen who all swore that they had seen him on that day at St. Kitt's.
Then after the prisoner and the counsel for the prosecutors had made their
speeches as usual to the court and jury, the president summed up the evidence,
and the jury, after being withdrawn for about half an hour, brought in their
verdict guilty, whereupon the usual sentence was pronounced ; and then the
prisoner addressing himself to the court said, That since it could no longer avail
him to conceal the fact, he would make a frank confession of the whole. He
then confessed that he did kill Mr. Mills, but that he killed him fairly according
to the notions of honour prevailing among men. That the cause of the quarrel
was, Mr. Mills calling him at the sale of the estate an impertinent puppy, and
refusing afterwards to make any apology, but instead thereof saying that if I
thought myself injured, he was at my service, when properly called upon. That
upon this several letters passed between them, by which means they at last met at
the time and place mentioned in the trial; and that Mr. Mills had his pistol
actually presented when he received the shot which killed him.


Before his execution, which was on Jan. 20, 1753, he wrote a long narrative of
his case in a letter to a gentleman of St. Kitt's, in which he still insisted upon his
killing Mr. Mills fairly; but in the paper he delivered to the provost marshal at
the place of execution, he says nothing of the truth of this narrative, or of his
having killed Mr. Mills fairly, so that whether he did so or not is still doubtful;
but one thing seems to be certain, that Mr. Mills and he met that morning by
express appointment, therefore if it was not a fair duel, Mr. Mills must have been
very imprudent; for no prudent man would go single and alone to meet and fight
another, without carrying along with him a pair of pistols in good order. If
M'Kenley, when he found the deceased's sword and pistols in the situation he
describes, had asked the boy who put them into that situation; or if a witness
had been produced at the trial to prove that the pistols shewn to Mess. Pringle
and Baker were the very pistols taken out of Mr. Mills's holsters when the horse
returned, it would have tended to clear up this question; for Dr. Hamilton seems
not to understand the proper posture of defence, when a man fights with pistols,
which is to turn his right side as much as possible to his enemy, because he may
thereby more probably escape his enemy's shot, as the side of his body is not near
so broad as the front; and a ball, by slanting upon one of the ribs may take a
direction different from what it had when it entered the body.
We have given the more full account of the evidence upon this trial, because
the proof was founded entirely upon presumption, without any one witness of the
fact, which is a dangerous sort of proof, but more necessary to be admitted in the
West-Indies than here at home, because negroes are not admitted as witnesses,
even tho' employed to assist in committing a crime.

The following burial entries from parish registers relate to the principals in the
above encounter:-
1752 Nov. 20 Matthew Mills, Esqre.
1753 .Ian. 20 M' John Barbot, Attorney at Law, Executed at Basseterre for
the Death of Alattw Mills, Esq., in a duel at Frigate Bay.
The above Matthew Mills, junior, was younger son of Matthew Mills, senior,
Chief Justice of St. Kitts, who died in 1744 and whose will was recorded that year
(No. 3220). In a power of attorney dated 1737 and recorded in Nevis he was
styled loctor of physic of St. Christopher." In 1738 he was recommended for
a seat in the Council, and was present as a member in May 1741. In Nov. 1743
he was absent in England, where he had married at St. George's, Hanover Square,
on the previous 23 J une, Cornelia dau. and coh. of Col. Peter Soulegre, a former
planter of Huguenot origin. He made his will on 30 July 1746, being then of
Soho Square, and left his plantations to his only son Peter Matthew Mills, born in
1743, who also succeeded in 1760 to the extensive estate of his grandfather
Col. Soulegre. Peter was that year a fellow commoner of Christ Coll., Camb.,
from Westminster School.
As the tentative pedigree of Mills in "Antigua," iii., pp. 258, 259, requires
alteration, it will be as well to give an abstract of the will of the Chief Justice
which I made at St. Kitts in 1914.

John Henry Earle Berkeley owned a family bible in which the names of all
his family were entered, from which the following additional notes are derived.
Mary Eliz. was born, and died in Lisbon.
George was also born in that city. He once visited the W. I., staying at
Cedar Hill, Antigua, as appears from one of his letters which I have seen. He
died at Nice. His wife, Frances Mary Bolden (not Bolton), sister of a Rev. John
Bolden, d. 1 March 1887, aged 72; buried in the old cemetery, Mentone.
Maurice Henry Hewitson was b. at Paradise Estate, Grenada; d. in the

Hartman, of whom nothing is known. He predeceased her, dying at St Ann's
Bay, Jamaica, where he was residing with his eldest son Edward (evidently by a
previous wife). She d. 8 March 1874, aged 84, M.I. at Lympstone.
Tho. Berkely left an only child, Mina Eliz., b. probably in London; was with
her mother in St Kitts, 1815-17; mar. Frederick Belson, Capt., Rifle Brigade.

John Henry Earle Berkeley, of Mount Home, Grenada, wrote a long journal
about the year 1831, describing his mercantile and plantation affairs. From an
abstract of this I give a few notes. The writer, aged 2 at his father's death in
1786, was a midshipman from 1797-1801, and on attaining the age of 21, in 1805,
inherited 5,000 c. He married in 180., went to England in 1810, became
partner with his uncle, Thomas B., and engaged in various mercantile pursuits
in the Peninsula. At the Peace they purchased the Paradise Estate in Grenada
for 35,000 c., which John managed from 1815-26. They purchased, in 1826,
Mount Home and Plaiscene for 34,500, and, in 1827, Paraclete for 11,000.
The two families resided for some years in Brussels, and there were numerous
visits to the W.I.
