Henry Barrow, son of Thomas Barrow and Elizabeth (…), was born about 1688, being age 27 in the census of 1715.1 He was later baptized at age 6 at St. Philip's Parish, Barbados, 2 December 1694, as son of Elizabeth (…) Barrow, along with an unnamed sister; the father is not named.2 He died at St. George's Parish, Barbados, in 1764, when his will was proved.3

Henry married Eliza Presley, whose ancestry is unknown (or not traced here), at St. Michael's Parish, Barbados, 25 March 1708.4

In 1715, his family was recorded at an unknown place as:
     Henry, age 27
     wife Elizabeth, age 24
     William, age 7,
     Henry age 6,
     Rebecca age 5.5

Henry left a will dated in 1743, and proved in 1764. In it he named wife Elizabeth, sons William, Henry, John, and James, and nieces of his wife: Eliza and Anne Clarke. Rebecca was not named so had probably died before 1743. Bequests included:
     a negro woman, Jenny, to his wife,
     his property and two negro men, Robin and Philbol, to son William,
     £25 each to sons Henry, John, and James,
     household furnishings and five negros to daughter Mary,
     £10 each to nieces Eliza and Anne Clarke.3
