The "Triangular Trade" routes of the early colonial period included Barbados. London merchants had their fingers in just about every pie [competition with Dutch West India Company], and in 1628 sent a ship to begin the settlement on this island. On July 5th, 1628 the "master" of the ship Marygold arrived Carlisle Bay. This "master" was John Jones! Of course it would have to be a "John".
The following is a reference which is very helpful for those with Barbados connections.
Anyone out there with interest in the JONES surname and Barbados please comment.
