Re: WOOD OR WOODS OF THE BAHAMAS/BARBADOS/TURKS ISLAND

Hi Will,
My name is Kenneth Goodman Wood; my father was Kenneth Geoffrey Wood born in Barbados in 1923; son of Kenneth Goodman Wood (wife was Frances Farmer). He was the son of Lear Wood (wife was Florence Goodman). I also understand that the family have been in Barbados since the 1600's and were plantation owners. The original plantation was called Harmony Hall, but also owned River and Vineyard among others. My understanding is that they came to Barbados on the white sails, exiled from England because they were supporters of Mary, Queen of Scots. I don't know have any proof of this, just family lore. One Wood (I can't remember his first name) was president of Barbados from 1701 - 1703, and another was speaker of the house after that. Hope this helps.
