Barbados Christian Servants

These fall into three categories of forced labour which included

  1. war captives offshoots of the European wars and Cromwell’s war against the Irish
  2.  the creole offspring of  Native American and African captives and
  3.  voluntary indentured labour from England, Ireland and Scotland..

The practice of rounding up persons for transport to the American and Caribbean colonies to work was known in the seventeenth century as ‘barbadosing’. In 1640 there were 200 servants on the plantation of Capts. Henry and William Hawley. (BDA RB3 Vol 1)   A sale by Captain James Holdipp in 1644 referred to 25 men servants from the vessel called the Victory captained by John Richward besides maid servants and an additional team of 40 men servants. (BDA RB3/1/536).  In most deeds, servants were referred to by number held rather than by names.
The few listed here were indentured.  This data was found in the Barbados Department of Archives under recopied deeds which, although in good condition are not always easy to decipher because of the ostentatious flurries of the early 19th century clerks.  Alternative spellings are written in italics. The year refers to the date of the Deed or in instances, when a hasty jotting neglected the exact date, the period in which the deed was recorded is given.
