Betty, I am also researching my Leacock ancestors in Barbados. My great-grandmother was Constance Cromartie LEACOCK b. 1863 d. 1938. Her father was George Phillips LEACOCK born circa 1841 and his father was George William LEACOCK all of Barbados. I have not been able to get back any further as the records become patchy. I also know of another Leacock family in Barbados, but have not been able to connect them to my branch although I think they are related. If you could perhaps write to me direct with other details on your Leacock - Barbados connection, I may be able to help. The Kippins name is not familiar to me as I have been in New Zealand for the past 25 years.
