Samuel Hinds the Elder of St Peter

???? - 1807


Owner of Maynards and Gibbes estates, member of House of Assembly 1773-1799. Father of Hon. Wm Hinds, Hon. Samuel Hinds M.D. (q.v.), Hon. Benjamin Hinds and Abel Hinds. Brandow gives the date of the will as 1808.

This is almost certainly Samuel Hinds who was buried in St Peter, Barbados, 14 September 1807.


Brandow, Genealogies p. 613; Barbados Church Records, 1637-1887, FamilySearch.

Combining Brandow Genealogies p. 613, the evidence of wills for Samuel Hinds of London (proved 1827) and Samuel M. Hinds of Bath (proved 1847) and the Slave Register entries, we have identified four Samuel Hinds: (1) Samuel Hinds the Elder of St Peter (d. c. 1808); (2) his son Hon. Samuel Hinds MD (d. c. 1824), brother of William Hinds, Benjamin and Abel Hinds, and father of (3) Samuel Hinds 'of London' (d. c. 1826), brother of Philip Lytcott Hinds and William Prescod Hinds; and (4) Samuel M. Hinds, also given as Samuel Hinds jr, the son of Benjamin Hinds (Brandow suggests son of Abel). The awardee of two small claims and the attorney in 1829 for the Howell family [BA 12175 and BA 12177] Barbados might be a fifth Samuel Hinds or the same man as Samuel M. Hinds.
