    This information below, is from a book by Henry Upson SIMS, called
    "The Geneaology of the SIMS Family". It has been said that over the
    years, as new evidence has surfaced and been proven and unproven, that
    there are some errors conmtained in this book and that the information contained within should be regarded with some caution. Many SIMS/SYMES researchers have accepted this book as gospel and therefore may be perpetuating some certain "myths". I am making an attempt to retrace
    some of the findings stated in this book in hopes to determine what is
    fact and what is fiction. Of course, not all is erroneous, but enough conflicting and unproven information has been contained within to
    warrent this new search. If anyone has information concerning any of
    the persons mentioned below, I would very much appreciate your
    contacting me so that I can confirm this information.

    I'm researching the descendants of Thomas Symes of Barwick and his
    wife Amye Bridges in Somerset, England. One of his sons was Capt.
    George SYMES who lived in Antigua. George SYMES married Dorothy
    EVERARD, the daughter of Thomas Everard, Gent (who may have been the
    son of Charles Everard, Gov. of St. Christpher's a leeward island not
    far from Antigua in 1651-2) and had at least four children:

    Thomas SYMES Jr. of Barwick, Somerset (died 1682) M. Merriel Horner in Somerset.

    Capt. John SYMES of Montserrat and Anitgua(b. 1680-d. 1687) married
    Elizabeth Langton in Antigua. John SYMES was a Memeber of Council of
    the Island of Antigua in 1678.
    John and Elizabeth had a son, John SYMES of Montserrat and was in the Regiment of Lt.-Gen. Witham there. John d. 1709, killed in the Battle
    at Port Mahon. He did not marry. His will leaves his Montserrat
    plantaion to his nephew, Symes PARRY, son of his sister Elizabeth
    SYMES and Smauel PARRY. He also refers to the children of his sister
    Amy SYMES THOMPSON of Montserrat and the children of his sister
    Katherine SYMES LOYD of Antigua. He also leaves and estate in England
    to his nephew Symes PARRY and requiring him to take the surname of
    SYMES to inherit.

    Edward SYMES (baptised 1645) m. (possibly) Susanna Champion, widow of Bridgewater.

    Rev. Charles SYMES (b. 1647), Rector and canon of Compton-Martyn,
    married Ann Creed of Slaisbury in 1687.

    Capt. George SYMES Jr. of Anitigua (b. 1672-d.1712) married Elizabeth Sherwood.

    Henry SYMES (baptised 1653- d. 1714)Immegrated to Antigua with a grant
    of 100 acres in 1682. He married Henrietta, sister of Gov. Yeamans,
    and became Registrar of Antigua. He is buried at St. John's. He had
    four children:
    Capt. Henry SYMES
    Richard SYMES (may have emmigrated to VA)
    James SYMES
    Elizabeth SYMES

    William SYMES 9was living in 1675- possibly died brfor 1696) married
    Mary. He had sons:
    William SYMES
    Thomas SYMES
    Richard SYMES married Mary
    AMY (Ann) SYMES

    Elizabeth (b. 1682) married Smauel PARRY

    I am very interested in following these families of Antugua and
    Monserrat as descdants of Thomas SYMES of Barwick. If anyone has
    connections to these families, please e-mail me at

    Thank you, Cynthia SIMS Kirkland
