Classification: Query
Surnames: Baylis, Hancock, Davies, Thompson, Bell
William Baylis was Provost Marshal for the Bahamas from 1787 till his death in 1826. I have sent off for a copy of his will. Can anyone tell me more about his 40 years on the Island of New Providence. I know he had 2 wives Ann Bell and Priscilla Thompson.I know he had at least 3or 4 daughters: Hannah Fernly b 1790, Matilda Jane b. 1809, Charlotte 1799-1812 and unknown daughter (m. James Ferris Hancock R.N.)who is probably my 4x greatgrandmother. There is also a Rev Joseph Baylis and a Harriet Baylis(spinster) having some connection to the family. If anyone can provide additional info it would be greatly appreciated. Mary
