This all got real confusing real fast, but sometimes just one little tidbit will open a door.

From Genealogies of Barbados Families, compiled by James C. Brandow, page 445:

Captain Timothy Pinder of Barbados and Some of His Descendants

In the Census Papers of Barbados for the year 1679 the
only Pinder name recorded is that of Richard Pinder who is
mentioned in Col. Lyne s Regiment of Militia; while in the Census taken in the year 1715 there are four distinct families bearing the name. The names and ages of the Pinders in the latter Census are as follows: In the parish of Christ Church, Richard Pinder, 38, and Ann, his wife, 40; Nathan Pinder, 40, and Ann, his wife 40; John Pinder, 41, and Jean, his wife, 36, with their children Ann, 16, Margaret, 13. Mary, 91/2, Prudence, 6, Richard, 3, John, 1. In St. Michael, Timothy, 31, with a household consisting of males, two (19 and 2) females two ( 26 and 27) and John Pinder 35, whose household comprised three women 35, 18,14, three boys 12,8, 21/2. and one girl 6. There are no contemporary records now existing by which the relationship of the several families may be
Richard Pinder who is mentioned in the Census of 1679 may
have been the progenitor of all those named in the 1715 list. His original Will which is stated in the Index of Wills to have been recorded in Barbados in the year 1697, is now missing from among the records.
1. CAPTAIN TIMOTHY PINDER1 of Barbados was born about
the year 1683, and almost certainly in Barbados. He married
Katherine Cheesman, sister of Thomas Cheesman of St. Michael,Barbados, in whose will (dated 10th. February, 1740 and recorded 2nd March, 1741) his nephew Timothy Pinder2 and his (Timothy's2) children, Timothy3, Thomas Cheesman, George Lake, William, and Francis, and his (the testator's) niece Sarah Pinder, are named as legatees of £50 each.
Issue of Timothyl and Katherine (Cheesman ) Pinder, born
in Barbados :—
i. TIMOTHY 2, born 1713, baptized at parish church of St. Michael, on
the 28th August, 1913…. (Surely the 9 is a typo - terry)
ii KATHLEES OR KATHERINE baptized at St. Michael, 19th March, 1716. not mentioned in her father’s will, and probably died 9th October, 1720.
iii. Sarah, born the 6th January, 1721 married John Carter on the 5th September 1741 and had issue:_
(1)       Elizabeth Carter
(2)       Thomas Lake Carter
(3)       Henry Carter
(4)       Forster Carter
(5)       Katherine Carter
(6)       Timothy Chessman Carter
(7)       William Carter

From page 446:
Timothy Pinder1 died in St Michael 4th October 1793…By his will dated 3rd October 1723, …(he) gave …to John Webb, son of Captain John Webb and Jane his wife…

But, then the PindArs on the English Settlers of Barbados CD:

Aug 23, 1661 Baptism “Jane daughter of Richard & Prudence Pindar.
Sept 12 1722 John son of Capt John & Mrs. Jane Webb… Capt Timothy Pindar…godfather …Ann Pindar godmother

All the Pinders, Pindars, and even Penders are enough to keep you busy for days on the CD. Hope something helps. Let me know if I can send you anything else.
