I learned that there is a new book to be soon released chronicling the Haynes family of England and Barbados written by Dr. E Stewart Johnson. The book will be released on September 28, 2011 but can be pre-ordered from the publisher. I ordered my copy.
The book is called ‘Reading to Barbados and Back’ reflecting its three parts. ‘Tudor and Stuart England and the Commonwealth’ traces Lt-general Robert Haynes’s putative forebears in England of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, beginning with Richard Haynes and his wife Thomasine in Reading, and each of their children and grandchildren. ‘Barbados’, deals with the ancestors of Lt-Gen Robert Haynes in that island. ‘Back in England’ covers the return of the general, with several of his siblings and children, to England.
The book (ISBN 978 1 84624 611 1), published by Book Guild Publishing, Brighton, UK, is available from bookshops, online retailers or directly from the publisher (TEL: +44 (0)1235 465577; EMAIL:[email protected]). Do please feel free to pass on the information to any whom you think might be interested.
