American Prisoners of War Held at Barbados, Newfoundland and New Providence During the War of 1812 - Harrison Scott Baker.
This work was transcribed from records of the British Admiralty pertaining to American prisoners of war held at Barbados, West Indies; New Providence, Bahamas; and Newfoundland, Canada during the War of 1812. Those interned included American marines, merchantmen and sailors. Information is grouped by location: Barbados lists 1,453 prisoners; New Providence lists 836 prisoners; and Newfoundland lists 364 prisoners. An alphabetical listing of names, a numeric listing by prison number, a crew listing by ship, and a list of Americans on British ships are given for each location. The Barbados and Newfoundland sections also provide a list for prisoners whose service affiliation is not known. A list of United States Marines is included for New Providence. Mr. Baker is a lineal descendant of a veteran of the War of 1812 and past president of the Society of the War of 1812 in the State of Ohio
