28 BRfGGS OF BARBADOS.

"Directory to tlieUity of London, 1867."

An examination of this huge volume, (which, by the way, is
most execrably arranged, and calculated to be of no advantage to
the seeker after information, unless he is provided with a certain
amount of knowledge of the occupation, etc., of the party or person
sought,) shows but about seventy persons of the name of BRIGGS
resident in that city. Two liold government appointments, fifty-
one are in commercial employment, fourteen are concerned in the
legal profession, one is a baker, and a solitary pilgrim is a
preacher of the gospel.



The author has in his possession a printed copy of A Sermon
preach'd at the Fuxhral of CAPT. JOHN BRIGGS, at Dunstable,
March 23, 1094-5.— by THOMAS HARRISON. ISAIAH LVII, 1.

I'he RUihteous perislieth., and no Man laijeth it to Heart; and

RECORDS OF THE ISLAND OF BARBADOS.

For the information here atforded, I am deeply indebted to SIR
THOMAS-GRAHAM BRIGGS, Bart., a large landed proprietor,
and prominent official at Barbados his birth place, and where his an-
cestors have resided for a loug period of years, dating possibly from
the earliest occupation of the island by Great Britain. Sir Graham
has not been a resident of the island since May, 1876, having been
sojourning in England and upon the continent. I am informed by
him that the government of the island, caused all the existing
parish records to be transcribed, an example worthy of imitation
by some of the States of this Union, more especially those repre-
senting the "Original Thirteen." However, owing to hurricanes,
and still more to neglect, there are hardly any perfect registers in
Barbados, and some exist onlv from a very recent period.

A brother of THOMAS BRIGGS, of Briggs in Barbados, (the
grand-father of my correspondent) emigrated to America at an
early age, and has descendants in some of the Eastern States, but
owing to lack of necessary data, I am unable to definitely state
their location or names.

I take this occasion to express my thanks for the courtesy
extended by the Hon. Thomas Kerr, Administrator of the Island
of Grenada, in making inquiry and effort to procure abstracts from
the Registers of Barbados.

The following abstracts from the Registers were furnished by
Sir Graham, from copies made for him by the Hon. Thomas Kerr,
many years since, and contain all the entries relative to Briggs
which the existing registers contain, and this I believe is their
first appearance in print.



BRIGGS OF BARBADOS. 29

From an examination thereof, and a comparison of many of the
names of Briggs therein contained, I am almost confirmed in my
opinion, that, many of the families of Brings settled in Rhode
Island, especially those of Quaker ancestry, are descended from
emi^c:rants from Enj2;land, who came by the way of Barbados. It
is of record that George Fox, the Quaker Missionary was accom-
panied in his voyage to Barbados, by one THOMAS BRIGGS,
but whether he came north with Fox is not definitely known.
