The Barbados-Carolina Connection


The historical connections between Charleston and Barbados run deep. Many of the colonists who founded the Carolina colony came to South Carolina from Barbados. Barbadians’ political, economic, and cultural influence were great in the earliest years of the colony. In the first two decades after settlement, the majority of Carolina’s inhabitants – free and enslaved – came from Barbados.

Early History


The earliest parish registers for St. George, Barbados seem to be missing since the first baptism records begin almost a century late in April of 1801 with Joseph Nowell.


The first marriages for this parish also appear to begin in 1801 with surnames such as:  Ayshford, Bourne, Byer, Earle, Finney, French, Garnes, Gibson, John, Kinch, King, Massett, McConney, Nicholls, Perkins, Quinsey, Storey, Turney, and Wright.

 

These were quickly followed by other well known names from that period with the likes of: Archer, Austin, Baker, Bailey, Banfield, Barker, Barrow, Beard, Bell, Boxill, Brewster, Brown, Bryan, Burnett, Caddell, Carrington, Cattlewell, Chapman, Clarke, Clinton, Cobham, Cocklyn, Cox, Crouch, Dash, Edwards, Farnum, Fitzpatrick, Fleming, Franklin, Gale, Garey, Gill, Goddard, Grant, Gregory, Harding, Henery, Hill, Holder, Hope, Howard, Hunte, Hutchinson, Johnson, Jones, Jordan, King, Layne, Lewis, Long, Lucas, Mahon, Mapp, Marsh, McAndrew, Moore, Morris, Mottley, Murray, Murrell, Niles, Odwin, Padmore, Partridge, Perch, Perkins, Pollard, Ramsey, Reece, Richards, Riley, Roach, Roberts, Shepherd, Simpson, Sinckler, Smith, Swan, Tempro, Toppin, Turton, Wall, Walton, Ward, Watts, Welch, Whaley, Wheelwright, Wickham, Wilkinson, and Woodroofe
