Dear Terry,

Wow. How can I thank you enough for typing out all of that information from the Brandow book. BTW--I checked the online catalogs of local libraries and could not locate a copy. lists it as out of print. So extra thanks are in order.

I've spent a lot of time now with the English Settlers of Barbados CD, trying to make sense out of the various Pinder lines. I'm pretty sure that the Timothy b. 1683 is the son of Richard Pinder, because while there is no listed birth record for this Timothy, the will of Richard's son, John, speaks of a brother named Timothy and a Timothy of about the right age witnesses the will of Capt. Abraham Mangles, first husband of Richard's daughter Jane, who then marries Capt. John Webb. You have also noted that this Timothy is the godfather of John Webb and Jane Pinder's first-born son, John.

I suspect that Richard is the progenitor of all of the later Pinders of Barbados, but for the fact that records also list ca. 1650 both and Morrice Pinder and a Thomas Pinder as witnesses of wills, and a James Pinder appears as a witness on several wills 1673-1681.

Richard Pinder enjoyed some fame as a Quaker pamphleteer, one still widely-cited pamphlet of 1660 being a stirring condemnation of slavery in Barbados. One Quaker source that I found identifies him as coming from Ravenstonedale in Westmoreland, England. I've found in LDS records a few likely suspects for being the Richard Pinder from Ravenstonedale, but don't know for sure, yet, which is the right one. Figuring that out might help relate this Richard to Morrice and Thomas.

Might I ask one question? You quote as follows 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…"

Does Brandow report exactly what Timothy Pinder gave to the younger John Webb? Might I also ask you might be connected to the Barbardos Pinders?

Again, my most heartfelt thanks for your generosity.
