In Reply to: Edgecombes in the Caribbean by Mark Edgecombe of 349

Hi Mark - have we corresponded? What is your interest in this?
Do you have any evidence that the estate in Grenada was built by George Edgcumbe? I have never seen any.
Thomas Edgcumbe from Plymouth settled in Antigua in the 1690s, but his line died out in the late 1700s. The present Edgcombes in Antigua and Montserrat are descended from a seaman from England who settled there in the early/mid 1800s - any further information about him would be very welcome.
There are many Edgecombes in the Bahamas (whence also in Florida and elsewhere in US). They go back a long way, but I do not know where they got the surname from - again any information would be welcome.
