Richard Parris Pile

1800 - 1849

Claimant or beneficiary


Richard Parris Pile (1800-1849) as executor of his father, also Richard Parris Pile, was awarded the compensation for Haymonds in Barbados. Richard Parris Pile also appears as awardee for another as yet unknown estate in Barbados (for which Thomas Coppin as executor made the registration in 1834) and two smaller claims.

  1. Adm. pens. (age 18) at TRINITY, Dec. 2, 1818. S. of Richard Parris (and Caroline Jones). B. in the Barbados, West Indies. Schools, Barbados, and Stowe (Mr Jones). Matric. Lent, 1819. Migrated to Magdalene, June 24, 1819. Adm. at the Inner Temple, Oct. 5, 1819. (Inns of Court.).

  2. The younger Richard Parris Pile reportedly moved his family c. 1837 from Barbados to Philadelphia, where he is recorded as dying in 1847.

  3. According to one genealogical source, his mother was Charlotte rather than Caroline. (See also entry for Richard Parris Pile senior.) Married Eastmond Barrow. Children included: Father of Elizabeth Pile; Robert James Haynes Pile; William Hinds Pile; Eyare Pile; Charlotte Jones Pile; and 5 others. Brother of Nathaniel Jones Pile; Charlotte J. Pile and Elizabeth B. Pile; half brother of Eyare Pile.

  4. See also the following on the subsequent history of the family: "...Richard Parris Pile...moved with his family from Barbados to Philadelphia in 1837 and died there in 1847. His wife, Eastmond, nee Barrow was still living in Washington in 1887. Eliza married (her cousin) Conrade Pile in Washington D.C. in 1847, but they obviously returned to Barbados as their children were all baptised there from 1847 on, and Eliza died in [Barbados] in 1916.
    However, her younger sister Eastmond Pile who was born in Washington in 1841, married very well indeed! Her husband was Osceola C. Green, 'the son of John Green & Ann Forrest (1790-1870); The Forrest family owned Twin Oaks Estate, now the Taiwan Embassy' (and which Osceola inherited; his wife sold it in 1888 to a Bostonian, Gardiner Green Hubbard). 'Considered the largest privately owned estate in Washington, D.C., Twin Oaks, which is nearly the size of the White House compound, was placed on the National Register for Historic Sites on Feb. 5, 1986 in recognition of its storied past and architectural significance.'"
