American Prisoners of War Held at Barbados, Newfoundland and New Providence During the War of 1812


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
