The Archives in Barbados should have a copy of the will if it exists.I don't live in Barbados at present but the addr. was
Black Rock
St. Michael
Have you ever come across the surname Cuke in your research?
I have seen a report that Capt. James Cook's grandfather spelt his name Cuke.
The original spelling was Cocus, derivatives being Cooke,Cook,Cuke. Anything to add?
