Paul is correct about many Barbadian Yearwoods being Black. I am descended from one of them. Many Yearwoods in Barbados are also descended from the European Yearwood who often times took their slaves and after slavery female field workers and raped and impregnated them at will.

The majority of native Barbadians are of European and African ancestry. Very few black women and probably men were left untouched by the sometimes barbaric ( no pun intended) desires of their European ancestors.

Just to round out Paul's assertions.

Thanks.
