Eleanor,   Then we are related!!  

Ninian Beall's daughter, Sarah Beall (1659 - 1734), married the son of my SPOW ancestor (Alexander MacGregor (1610 - 1677)).   Sarah married Samual B Magruder (1654 - 1711) in 1680.  Sarah and Sam had John Magruder (1694 - 1750) through which I am a descendent.   

Ninian and Alexander were both brought to Maryland via Barbados.  Probably on the same ship together.  Wish we had those stories documented!!

Attached is some information on the Scots going to Barbados. I don't think there is any listing of them by name. 

My ancestor was Ninian Beall, a SPOW who was sent to Barbados, then had his indenture bought and went to Maryland.

Dear Nancy,

 

I’m not aware of any passenger lists except the John and Sara. For some reason that got copied into the Suffolk County register of deeds, but making lists, keeping them and enrolling them don’t seem to have been regular activities.

 

Best wishes

Andrew

Andrew,

    I was curious to know if you are familiar with any ships that took SPOWs from England to America, via Barbados in 1651 after the battle of Worchester.  My ancestor is Alexander MacGregor who was captured at the Battle of Worchester and sent to America via Barbados.  I am familiar with the manifest of the John & Sara from 1650 Dunbar Battle but I have not been able to find any ship manifest naming SPOW for Worchester 1651.  Any ideas?

 

Thank you,  Nancy

Hello and welcome mccarpenter,

 

The Society web site has a limited set of information about Alexander at https://spows.org/battle-of-dunbar/battle-of-dunbar-prisoners-of-war/battle-of-dunbar-prisoner-profiles/alexander-bow/

A lot more detail is given on this site https://alexanderbow.com/alexander/

As far as I know he is never explicitly said to be Scottish in contemporary records, but his land grant on the same day and adjacent to other known Scots strongly suggests it.

 

Best wishes

Andrew

Hello. I recently discovered that Alexander Bow is my ancestor (b. 1605, d. Nov. 6, 1678 in Middleton, Middlesex Co., Connecticut, USA).  I am looking for any information about him. All I know is he was born in Scotland (some sources say "possibly born in Scotland") and he may have been one of the SPOW. 
I also have Forbes and Grant connections. 
I am looking forward to discovering more here!
