Isaack Barton was the uncle of Edward Barton ("the Interrogate Barton is his this respondents Uncle")[2]

- SEE "BURIAL: Oct. 25 Elizabeth Sherryn dau. in law to Mr. Barton, merchant"[3]

Isaack Barton

The uncle of Edward Barton. Presumably a merchant, since Edward Barton acted as his factor in Barbados. He appears to have owned Barbados plantations, and may have had a link to Somers Island.

Classification: Query[5]

I am not researching this surname, and this is all the reference I have. Hope it is helpful.

In April 1968, I wrote to the governor of Barbados to inquire about possible family ties there in the 17th century. The replies follow, together with contents of a small exercise book used for the researcher’s notes and a reply from the archivist in Southhampton, Great Britain. Spelling and capitalization is as received.

Excerpts only:
2.181 Counter Deed of Isaac Barton.
Signed August 9, 1647 Entered August 18, 1647

Lancelott Peacock, Isaac Barton and Stephen Baxter, attorneys for Henry Quintyne, merchant of London, on his behalf granted, bargained and sold unto Samuel Barton and Samuell Leadbetter merchants of London, the moietr or half part of a plantation. On that plantation Lancelott Peacock then lived and he owned it in partnership with Henry Quintyne.

The plantation consisted of 77 acres and was sold with the grounds, timber, buildings, servants, profits and everything appertaining or belonging to it.

The provision and true intent of the Counter Deed was that so long as Henry Quintyne, his heirs and assigns should be content and should pay or cause to be paid eventually unto Samuel Barton and Samuel Leadbetter or their attorneys the sum of £100 of lawful English money according to the tenor of the bills on September 25, 1648 they were free of any further debt; and consequently the Counter Deed should be null and void. Otherwise the provision and conditions of the Counter Deed remained.

The plantation was declared free of any incumbrance.

The legal right of Henry Quintyne was safe-guarded.

2.180 Counter Deed of Samuel Barton et al
Signed April 10, 1647 Entered August 18, 1647.

Henry Quintyre, merchant of London, constituted his well beloved and true friend Samuel Barton gent of London and Stephen Baxter gent of Barbados, to be his true and lawful attorneys.

In his name they were to keep possession of the one half of a plantation consisting of 77 acres of ground or thereabouts. Also they had charge of one half of the edifices and what also belonged thereunto.

Quintyre had recently purchased this Barbadian property from Lancelott Peacock gent of Barbados.

The attorneys also had charge [sent by Henry Quintyre] of all the servants sent out for employment on the plantation with the edifices thereon.

They were empowered to farm lett and sell by Bill of Sale what they should deem most advantageous on his behalf.

They were to ask, demand and receive sums of money, debts, goods, merchantize, cotton, sugar and all other things whatsoever from any person in Barbados or any of the Caribbee Islands. They were granted the usual powers of attorneys so as to enable them to collect these debts.

They were granted power to revoke and conclude anything concerning the plantation. In fact they were empowered to perform anything which Henry Quintyre himself could or might do.

- C9/228/51 is a suit brought by John Cocke and his wife Anne Cocke (née Pixley) against the London merchant Thomas Pearle, the executor of Anne's deceased brother, the Smyrna based merchant John Pixley. The suit was brought in ?1659 and concerns Pearle's alleged withholding of moneys due to Anne as portion money sent as goods to Pearle in 1648 or 1649, and also Pearle's alleged failure to distribute funds realised from his subsequent executorship of John Pixley's estate. These latter funds allegedly should have been payed first to John's brother, Samuell Pixley, subsequently deceased, and then, by Samuell's will, to Anne and her sister.

PROB 11/221 Bowyer 52-106 Will of John Pixly, Merchant of Smyrna, Turkey 16 March 1652
- John Pixly described himself in his will as "of the Citty of London now resident in the Towne of Smyrna within the jurisdiction of the Emperor of Turky." He was almost certainly a factor for the London merchant Thomas Pearle, whom he made his sole executor. In Smyrna he was probably in partnership, or at least in a close trading relationship, with Mr. William Alvey, to whom he assigned "all Commissions or estate that may come recommended to my selfe and him joyntly." At the time of writing his will, when he was already sick, Francis Gough was his apprentice, having previously had William Gough, Francis' brother, as an apprentice. John Pixley left four siblings; two brothers and two sisters. The brothers were Samuell and Richard Pixly and the sisters Winifred and Ann Pixley. Samuell Pixley was also a merchant, and like Thomas Pearle, was a subscriber, after John Pixly's death, in the SVJS.
PROB 11/286 Will of Samuell Pixley, Merchant of London 01 February 1659
- Will refers to brother Richard Pixley, who was made Samuell Pixley's executor (" I give and bequeath to my brother Richard Pixley one hundred pounds to be paid Twelve months after my decease"; " I make and ordaine my loveing Brother Richard Pixley sole Executor of this my last Will and Testament nothing doubting but he will pay my debts and see all things performed as above and see mee decently interred "
