Eliza married Henry Barrow, son of Thomas Barrow and Elizabeth (…), at St. Michael's Parish, Barbados, 25 March 1708.3

Two William Presley's (Sr. & Jr.) were in St. Phillips Parish in 1680. An Anthony Presley, son of William Sr., was buried 22 Aug 1679, also at St. Phillips.

Again, two William Presley's (Sr. & Jr.) were listed under the command of Capt Vincent Dent, under Col. Christopher Lynn on 6 Jan 1679[/80?].
