Pepys on Vincent Delabar

"Tuesday 2 April 1661: ...Then to the Dolphin to Sir W. Batten, and Pen, and other company; among others Mr. Delabar; where strange how these men, who at other times are all wise men, do now, in their drink, betwitt and reproach one another with their former conditions, and their actions as in public concernments, till I was ashamed to see it. But parted all friends at 12 at night after drinking a great deal of wine."[1]

Secondary sources on Delabarr family

"Yet another member of the French Church, John Delabarr (c. 1599-1664), son of a Hugenot refugee, launched ventures in a variety of trades and was a principal owner of several ships, in partnership more than once with his younger brother Vincent and his sister's husband John Kipp, also a London Huguenot".[2]

One of Kenneth R Andrews' references regarding John Delabar is to Cell's Newfoundland. An online search for this reveals a number of mentiones of "John Delabarre" in Peter E. Popes' Fish into Wine: The Newfoundland Plantation in the Seventeenth Century (UNC, 2004)
