NOTES AND QUERIES
The Institute of Jamaica,
8th August 1913.
To the Editor.
In your last issue of "Caribbeana," p. 130, which is full of interesting material, I am convinced that you unintentionally, I am sure, libelled Sir Hender Molesworth. I went into the matter some years ago, and was satisfied that Sloane's "Sir H. M." was Sir Henry Morgan. In the Manuscript Department of the British Museum is a letter from John Roby, the well-known author of "The History of the Parish of St. James in Jamaica" and "Monuments of the Cathedral Church and Parish of St. Catherine," dated at Montego Bay 21st December 1831, addressed to Charles Edward Long (the grandson of the Jamaica historian), who was preparing for issue "Church Notes of Jamaica." In this matter Roby generously offered to place at his disposal his notes, which he no longer felt inclined to publish, as he had lost £120 to £130 over St. Catherine and St. James.
Roby told Long that he had found in the St. Catherine Register the following entry: "1688 August 26 Sir Henry Morgan was buried at Port Royal." This information is the more interesting, as the early records of St. Catherine are now no longer existing.
Roby refers to Sloane's account of Sir H.M. and says: "It must probably refer to Sir Henry, though Sir Hender Molesworth's initials being the same it may perhaps refer to him."
Now, pace Long, who in his account of Morgan in the "Gentleman's Magazine for 1832,* "Memoir of Sir Henry Morgan, Knt.," concludes as follows:-
"I have shewn Sir Henry Morgan to have been neither by connection, nor conduct, nor acquirement, the low-born, bandit-like, and illiterate desperado, that discontented followers, discomfitted enemies and childish storybook would have him, but a fit associate in the annals of a transatlantic adventure, with the Raleighs, the Drakes, the Cliffords, and the Shirleys of earlier renown."
Morgan was known to be a hard drinker, as Lord Vaughan testified of Hender Molesworth, Leslie, in his "New and Exact Account" of Jamaica .... Edinburgh, 1739," says: ''This gentleman behaved to the universal satisfaction of the island; his deportment was courteous, he was easy of access, given to no vice or extravagance .... a man of moderate principles."
But lastly, Sloane wrote in 1688, when Molesworth was not a baronet, that honour being conferred on him on the 19th of July, 1689. Sloane's "Sir H. M." presumably died in Jamaica; Morgan died in Jamaica, Molesworth in England.
Frank Cundall, Secretary.
[Long, in the above quoted Memoir, after discussing the pros and cons, was of the opinion that "H. M." referred not to Morgan, but to Molesworth. I venture to think that the weight of evidence is against that conclusion, and that Mr. Cundall's identification is correct. -Ed.]

I send you a few notes on West Indian families, these being ancestors or relations of my wife.
Cyprien de Reynaud, born about 1707, died 1804-1812 at New Orleans, La., married Martha Nicola and had thirteen children. He had a sugar plantation at Aux Caves, San Domingo. He and his family were obliged to leave there in 1791, going to Nantes, France. The family were Royalists, and probably driven out of France; in any event a party of them sailed from La Rochelle in 1799, landing in New Port, R.I., Jan. 1, 1800. They then went to New Orleans.
Pierre Gregoire de Keynaud, married, no issue.

The Legacy of the American Revolution to the British West Indies and Bahamas. A Chapter out of the History of the American Loyalists. By Wilbur H. Siebert, A.M., Professor of European History. (Published by The Ohio State University, Columbus, 1913. 8vo., pp. 50.)
This interesting brochure is a welcome addition to a little known period of West Indian history, describing as it does the movements of those American Loyalists who were compelled to quit their homes and take refuge in the West Indies.
Quoting from the above it appears that early in the Rebellion, East Florida served as a retreat for loyalist refugees from the Carolinas and Georgia. Its population of 1000 whites and 3000 negros, after the evacuation of Savannah and Charleston, had increased in the year 1783 to 16,000, with about two whites to three blacks.
After the surrender of Charleston, 1278 whites and 2613 blacks embarked direct for Jamaica, and 20 whites and 350 blacks for St. Lucia. Many of the refugees in Florida, Honduras and the Mosquito Shore, as well as a considerable portion of the 10,000 persons sent from New York to Shelburne in Nova Scotia, also found their way to the W.I.
On Florida being ceded to Spain, there was a final exodus in 1783 - 5 of troops and other refugees, this time to the Bahamas. From New York City 1458 persons, besides 8 companies of Militia, settled in 1783 in the Island of Abaco, the largest island of the Bahamas, where they were joined by 1500 from East Florida. The Bahamas in this way gained an accession of six to seven thousand inhabitants, the newcomers outnumbering the old population. The arrival of so many merchants and experienced planters with considerable gangs of slaves brought about a great increase of trade and prosperity, cotton and Guinea corn being extensively grown.
In Jamaica the loyalists were especially welcomed, and exempted from taxation for seven years. Some lists of the new arrivals appear to exist, but they must of necessity be very incomplete.
Long gives a good description of the early seal (vol. i, p. 48).
Obverse.-The royal arms and titles.
Reverse. - King Charles II. enthroned in royal robes, holding the globe and sceptre. At his feet two negroes kneeling and supporting a basket of West Indian fruits.
On the Exergue.- CAROLUS SECUNDUS DEI GRATIA MAGNAE BRITANNIAE
FRANCIAE ET HIBERNIAE REX DOMINUS JAMAICAE. FIDEI DEFENSOR.
Below is this motto: DURO DE CORTICE FRUCTUS QUAM DULCIS.
My impression is in beeswax covered with paper, attached to a document of 1787. Like all the other ones its diameter is 4.4 inches.
Obverse.-The royal arms of King George III.
On the Circle.-Inscription illegible.
Reverse.-To the left stands the king in royal vestments, crowned, in his right hand the globe and sceptre, the left hand outstretched. To the right, kneeling on his left knee, is a negro holding on his right knee a basket of fruit. Above the latter's head are the arms and crest of Jamaica.
On the Exergue.-Inscription illegible. Long says the inscription of this seal was mutatis mutandis the same as that already described.
