    Text Orderson Family Records

    The earliest mention of the Orderson family in Barbados is to be found in the Census records for the year 1715. John Orderson, age 23 and Ann (presumably his wife) aged 22, are entered as living in the Parish of St. George. The next record in point of time is the will of the same John Orderson, which was proved in 1741. The will discloses that Orderson has some right or interest in Cape Fear in North Carolina, which suggests that he may at some time have been a resident in that country.

    Facts relating to the family taken from the public records and various printed sources have been complied in the following narrative.
